Atlas Awarded $5M Contract for OVT&I Services on TxDOT Design-Build Project for Oak Hill Parkway

AUSTIN, TX — Atlas Technical Consultants, Inc., a provider of professional testing, inspection, environmental, engineering, program management, and consulting services, announces that it was awarded a $5-million contract from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) as the owner’s representative for reconstruction, widening, and adding flyovers at US 290 and State Highway 71 on the Southside of Austin. The initial phase of the Oak Hill Design-Build contract will last for a duration of five years.

Atlas will perform the Owner Verification Testing & Inspection (OVT&I) for the project, which includes the verification of testing and inspection of all construction elements. Atlas has been involved in 22 of the 25 design-build/concession projects issued by TxDOT, including seven selections to perform Owner Verification.

“Atlas has partnered with TxDOT for more than 20 years, and we are especially pleased to be a part of the team that will build this design-build project,” said Atlas CEO, L. Joe Boyer.

“I look forward to our partnership with Atlas in the critical role of owner verification during the construction of Oak Hill Parkway," said Christiana Astarita, PE, TxDOT Project Manager on the contract. "As we transform mobility in Oak Hill, TxDOT has considerable goals for quality assurance to ensure the safety of the traveling public when the project is complete.”

Construction on the Oak Hill Design-Build project is anticipated to begin in the early fall of 2021.
