General Engineering Contract/RTSA Administration
• Construction Value: $5.2 billion
• Location: Honolulu, HI
• Project Detail: New Light Rail
• TSG Position: Subconsultant to CH2M
• TSG Role: Program Scheduling and RTSA Administration
Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) is building the islands’ first rail transit line. With an FTA-supported budget of $5.16 billion, the elevated rail design will provide east-to-west transit through the most densely populated and heavily congested portion of the island of Oahu. TSG, as subconsultant to CH2M, is providing program-level Scheduling services to the Authority under a General Engineering Contract (GEC). TSG staff fill 2 senior scheduling roles, reviewing and analyzing contractor monthly schedule updates to process corresponding pay requests, in addition to analyzing potential claims for mitigation and/or avoidance. All contractor submittals are processed through an electronic Contract Management System linked to the Primavera P6 schedule database, where schedules have been previously cost-loaded. The Scheduling team also prepares ad-hoc schedules and reports for HART management as requested.
In addition, TSG is administering the HART Rapid Transit Stabilization Agreement (RTSA), a PLA-like agreement among contractors, unions and the Authority setting guidelines for labor relations on the GEC project. This involves interpretation of two parallel agreements and giving guidance on ambiguities to all stakeholders, as well as working with non-participatory parties to facilitate good relations and ensure the project is continuously moving forward.
