F.H. Paschen participated in the 2018 Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Great Lakes Conference Heavy Civil Competition.
Students from surrounding colleges estimated multiple heavy civil items for the Chicago Transit Authority Washington/Wabash Station in the Chicago Loop. The CTA elevated station was constructed in Jeweler’s Row between Madison and Washington to serve the CTA’s Brown, Green, Orange, Pink, and Purple lines. The project consolidated historic, but dated, Madison/Wabash and Randolph/Wabash stations into a single station. New station construction consisted of a foundation-up rebuild of CTA structure within station limits, including complete demolition and rebuild of two track structure spans to accommodate a mezzanine level station house.
The winning team, the Milwaukee School of Engineering, was able to identify and alleviate many of the issues that our project team encountered during construction. They went above and beyond to ensure that the Washington/Wabash Elevated loop station was estimated correctly. They had detailed work plans, over a 15 page safety plan, and had the closest bid. Congratulations!
We also want to thank the 2nd place team, The Ohio State University, and 3rd place team, The University of Cincinnati for their effort and hard work on this project.
The conference was October 17th through October 20th at the Hilton Doubletree in Downers Grove, IL.
