SNC-Lavalin Awarded $10M Right-of-Way Services Contract for TxDOT

AUSTIN, TX — SNC-Lavalin, a fully integrated professional services and project management company with offices around the world, was awarded a four-year $10 million contract by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to provide Right-of-Way Acquisition Professional Services (ROWAPS). The company has maintained a TxDOT ROWAPS contract since 2000, when right-of-way services were initially expanded to Texas.

"Consistently delivering high quality services and solutions and cultivating strong relationships is what leads to these types of repeat business opportunities with long-standing clients," said Ian L. Edwards, President and Chief Executive Officer at SNC-Lavalin.

Under the Indefinite Deliverable contract, the company will provide project management, real estate appraisal review, title review, negotiation, acquisition, relocation assistance, condemnation, and property management services. The project staff averages 20 years of experience delivering information to affected property owners.

"We are proud to have established ourselves as a trusted partner, meeting the state of Texas' right-of-way needs for more than two decades," said Steve Morriss, President, Engineering Services, U.S. at Atkins. "Our vast experience has prepared us to handle tough challenges, while maintaining TxDOT's production goals and fulfilling its commitment to customer service."

The company has provided ROWAPS on a wide range of TxDOT projects, helping relieve congestion on some of the state's most heavily traveled highways including U.S. 190, Interstate Highway 35 Nex in San Antonio, and the Grand Parkway/State Highway 99 beltway around Houston. Additionally, SNC-Lavalin staff provides right-of-way services in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, and Nevada.
