A Texas A&M construction science professor is working to lower the cost of highway construction bids by optimizing data-driven construction scheduling methods in advance of the U.S. government implementing the $1.5 trillion highway infrastructure rebuilding plan proposed last February by the Trump administration.
Kunhee Choi, associate professor of construction science is joining colleagues from Iowa State University and Northeastern University on this 20-month, $500,000 project, “Systematic Approach for Estimating Construction Contract Time,” funded by the Transportation Research Board of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program.
Kunhee Choi, associate professor of construction science, and a group of collegues are developing a guidebook to estimate contract time for highway projects.

McCarthy Building Companies’ Renewable Energy Team, based in Phoenix, was selected as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor on the Midway III solar project, a new 26-MW project located in Calipatria, California. The project is owned by Greenbacker Renewable Energy Company.
Midway III broke ground in January 2018 and is scheduled for completion in October 2018. Once operational, Midway III will sell all the power generated to a large California utility through a 20-year fixed-price power purchase agreement.
