final plans, specifications, and estimates for the USD 1. 35 billion Segments
5 and 6. This 27-mile stretch is a four-lane divided tollway with two
multidirectional interchanges, 14 grade separations, and 31 miles of frontage
road. Major design elements were due 18 months from notice to proceed with
From an on-site office, AECOM coordinated design among 120 employees
spread across 20 offices throughout North America. Project Wise connected
96 team members to the design process, enabling AECOM to integrate one
approach to design and document versioning. Project Wise saved the project
more than USD 5. 6 million in travel reduction and productivity gains, returning
80 times the original investment.

The North Tarrant Express (NTE) is a USD 2. 5 billion, 13.5-mile project
dedicated to improving mobility along the Airport Freeway corridor.
Representing USD 1. 6 billion of the project, the Segment West will reconstruct
and upgrade existing lanes, improve and expand frontage lanes, and add
managed toll lanes for commuters. NTE Mobility Partners contracted AECOM to
complete the due diligence study that contributed to the consortium’s winning
With just five months to deliver the study, AECOM implemented Project Wise
to quickly and efficiently connect a 75-member team located in four offices.
Project Wise leveraged cloud computing to facilitate collaboration without the
need for extensive I T infrastructure. By hosting the service in the cloud, AECOM
saved four months in start-up time and 80 percent of on-site deployment costs.
