The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has awarded Wood a new contract to provide construction, engineering and inspection (CEI) services on roads and bridges in 31 west-central counties south of Atlanta. The three-year contract has a value of $27 million and is estimated to reach completion by 2023.

This is Wood’s second consecutive contract with GDOT in this region, and the contract will go into effect as soon as the current contract expires. Wood currently holds the same prime contractor status with GDOT for CEI work in 27 counties in east-central Georgia and also serves as subcontractor in the metropolitan Atlanta district.

Ann Massey, CEO of Wood’s Environment & Infrastructure Solutions business, said: “Wood has a long and respected history as a top, strategic provider of CEI services in Georgia. For the last 12 years, we have worked with the state on a variety of key transportation projects. Wood remains highly regarded, not only for our technical expertise and reliability, but also for our ability to get things done.”

This year, the state named Wood an ‘Outstanding Georgia Business’ in recognition of its project and engineering work across the state and the jobs that work has created for small businesses in those communities. GDOT contracts typically specify that prime contractors share 16 percent of the work with disadvantaged business enterprises (DBE). Wood has met or exceeded that requirement on all statewide CEI contracts with GDOT.
