WGI AWARDED THREE NEW CONTRACT WINS
Wantman Group, Inc. (WGI) continues its streak of major job awards – in addition to nine new service or continuing service contracts awarded by municipalities and counties around the state.
WGI was selected by the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) District 4 to perform all professional engineering services and obtain approvals from the FDOT, Lake Worth Drainage District, and Palm Beach County required for the replacement of four bridges identified by the Palm Beach County MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization): Seminole Drive at the L-16 Canal, Sandalfoot Boulevard at the E-1E Canal, New England Boulevard at the E-1 Canal, and El Claire Ranch Road at the L-30 Canal.
WGI was selected as one of three firms to serve the City of West Palm Beach as Transportation Engineering/Planning Consultants. The three-year term of this contract includes a two-year option to extend. The award could not have come at a better time, as the City is embarking upon a new path for transportation planning and infrastructure. WGI will be a part of the team of innovative community leaders and staff seeking to redesign city streets into integrated, connected networks for multi-modal use. The services involve a wide range of WGI disciplines, including transportation planning, roadway design, structures design, drainage, environmental services, landscape architecture, urban design, civil engineering, utilities, and surveying.
WGI was awarded all five of the Seminole Tribe’s 2016 wetland monitoring projects. These are scientific studies of vegetation in pristine areas of the Big Cypress and Immokalee Reservations. Winning all five establishes WGI as the go-to firm for scientific work with the Seminole Tribe, and places the firm in an excellent position to win again in future years.
As a multidisciplinary consulting firm, WGI has eight offices throughout Florida and specializes in the following disciplines: Land Development/Municipal Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Surveying and Mapping, Subsurface Utility Engineering, Structures, Water Resources, Landscape Architecture, Environmental Sciences, Land Planning and Creative Services. The Zweig Group ranked WGI #5 on its 2016 Hot Firms list (up from #39 in 2015) and ranked WGI #19 on the Best Firms to Work For list (up from #42 in 2015). WGI rose to #1609 on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America – over 1800 places higher than last year’s placement. WGI ranked #60 in 2016’s Top 100 Fastest-Growing Companies by the South Florida Business Journal, ranked #10 on its 2016 Top Engineering Firms, while in August 2015, it ranked #12 in the $25M and over category as a 2015 “Fast 50” Honoree from the same publication. In 2016, WGI ranked #253 (up from #338 the previous year) on the ENR’s list of the Top 500 Design Firms and ranked #17 in ENR’s Top Southeast Design Firms of 2016.
