  • Onvia, Inc. (ONVI) Unveils Video Highlighting Seattle HWY99 Tunnel Project 0 comments
    Jul 11, 2013 2:22 PM | about stocks: ONVI

    Onvia, a leading provider of comprehensive government-business market intelligence, today revealed the first of a new series of videos telling the story of Bertha, the largest drill in the world and the resultant economic opportunities for contracting companies. The video features the drilling of the Hwy99 tunnel and is a cooperative project involving government agencies and dozens of private companies. The video follows the story of Bertha's arrival from Japan and focuses on the collaboration between the government agencies and private contractors.

    The huge SR99 Alaska Way tunnel project, underway in Onvia's home city of Seattle, is a great example of a big government project on a local level. This multi-year, multi-contractor project funded by federal, state and local governments has created several opportunities for local Seattle companies to secure a part of the business. Managed by two large contractors, this huge and complex tunnel project has helped boost the local economy through the hiring of dozens of subcontractors, which is expected to continue over the next few years.

    "This contract is a joint venture between Dragados USA and Tutor Perini Corporation. Underneath them they have hired more than 50 subcontractors," stated Matt Preedy, Deputy Program Administrator. "Projects like this have a big employment benefit overall. Not just for the people working on the job but for the community around them."

    Onvia has also incorporated the use of Onvia Market Snapshot, providing government contractors wishing to see a quick snapshot of the many government bid opportunities available a tool with which to do so. Onvia, a rich resource of business intelligence, delivers the kind of state and local government data for projects like this including, long term planning, future spending, award information, recurring contracts, and future opportunities to win more government business.
