2 Awareness/Approach to Project
Understanding of Scope of the Project Identification of Unique Project Issues Innovative Concepts

3 Understanding Project Scope
Project Overview Design Build Contract $30 Million 760 days Three Financial Project ID’s 56 miles, from Charlotte County Line to I-275 Final Phase of the District One I-75 FMS Design, furnish, install, integrate and test ITS field devices Provide for a redundant system between SWIFT and Satellite Traffic Management Center (STMC)

4 Understanding Project Scope
Primary Responsibility of the CEI Act as extension to FDOT staff Proactively manage the work Anticipate and address project issues Coordinate all aspects of design and construction Review/ analyze CPM schedules Provide interpretation of contract documents Enforce contract requirements and implement CPPR Operate in accordance with FDOT procedures (CPAM)

5 Understanding Project Scope (Design)
Detailed Reviews for 60%, 90% & Final (100%) Conformance with Design Build Technical Proposal - “Book of Promises” Conformance with RFP & MTRs Hardware/ Software Compatibility Review/ Resolution of Potential Integration Issues Compatibility/Coordination with Future Projects Confirm existing fiber (I-75/SR 70 to STMC) Provide Clarifications - RFP vs. MTRs Permit Acquisition

12 Understanding Project Scope (Construction)
Road Weather Information System (RWIS) Two (2) to be installed along the project Placed outside clear zone limits Fenced enclosure for device and cabinet Power/ Emergency Generators DBF to provide all power services to devices Diesel-electric generator units required at all power service point locations providing power; DMS locations Communications backhaul locations

13 Understanding Project Scope (Construction)
CCTV (Closed Circuit TV) Installed at approximate one-mile intervals (70 +/-) Complete coverage of both directions of I- 75 traffic, on/off-ramps, interchanges (video site survey) Shall provide for view of all DMS messages and HAR beacons Cannot be installed in the medians or top side of overpass slopes Pole height cannot exceed 65 feet Locate more than 50 feet away from any high mast light pole Pre-stressed concrete pole with grounding, lightning protection, and lowering devices

14 Understanding Project Scope (Construction)
ITS Inspection CEI check lists based on Final Plans/ RFP/ MTR requirements Standards/ Specifications/ NEC FDOT 780 Supplemental Specifications Inspection Guidelists Components to be QPL/APL approved Splice and pull box conformance APL/ITS certified products Proper sizing of products Use of expanded RTVM for field inspections

15 Understanding Project Scope (Construction)
MOT/ Safety MOT Certified Personnel/ Interstate (I-75) experience Minimize traffic disruptions & maximize safety Ensure advance coordination for lane closures & nighttime operations (PIO, Law Enforcement & Emergency Services) Full span truss installation – Charlotte FMS Conformance with MUTCD & FDOT standards MOT & Safety as agenda project meetings Critical during DMS installation & bridge work (limited ROW) MOT verification inspection each day prior to leaving site

16 Understanding Project Scope (Construction)
Environmental Concerns Scattered wetland presence along northbound ROW Potential for endangered species Gopher tortoises Low-lying areas with standing water which could impact equipment access NPDES inspections (weekly, ½”) Permit conformance Erosion Control Plan Performance Turf Specifications Mowing requirements

17 Understanding Project Scope (Documentation)
CEI Reporting Daily Reporting of Construction Activities/ Site Manager Verification Testing Reports & LIMS Entry MOT Reviews & Verification of Contractor’s Reports CPM Reviews Digital Progress Photos & Log Monthly FDOT Project Status Reports (CSRS) Meetings Minutes & Follow-Up Action Items

18 Understanding Project Scope (Documentation)
DBF Submittal Tracking Design Submittals Cut Sheets/ Shop Drawings CPM Schedule/ Updates Schedule of Values Field Equipment Operational Manuals Software Manuals/ Device Protocols Test Procedures and Results Training Manuals 270+ Design Submittals - Charlotte FMS We will prepare a submittal tracking log in advance of project start & track all submittals via ERC

19 Understanding Project Scope (Documentation)
Project Close Out/ Warranties Timely submittal of all close out documents As-Built plans Bore Logs/ GPS locations Spare Parts (as required) Timely/ Accurate Final Estimate Early FE submittal on Charlotte FMS and no procedural errors Warranties Pre/ post-warranty meetings Ensure warranties per contract/ technical proposal

20 Understanding Project Scope (Documentation)

21 Understanding Project Scope (TMCs)
Satellite Traffic Management Center (STMC) New Gigabit Ethernet switch New SunGuide servers SunGuide Software (FDOT furnished) Video Wall Expansion 12 new cubes Video wall controller 5 new workstations Electrical wiring SWIFT Center Video Wall upgrade to handle new CCTVs Provide standby Gigabit Ethernet switch Operations STMC backup to SWIFT

22 Understanding Project Scope (Testing & Integration)
MTR requires: Preliminary Integration Plan 30 days prior to Pre-Integration Meeting Pre-Integration Meeting Discuss Preliminary Integration Plan Integration Plan 90 days prior to Integration Work Testing Factory Stand-Alone Subsystem Operational Test Burn-in

23 Understanding Project Scope (Testing & Integration)
Keys to Successful Integration: Start From Day 1 (Design) Good System Understanding Main Components Software Hardware Interfaces Software/Software Interface (SSI) Software/Hardware Interface (SHI) Hardware/Hardware Interface (HHI) Testing Right Type Functional, Operational Right Number When and Where Clear Well Defined Metrics Well Defined Pass/Fail Criteria New Field Devices STMC SHI HHI SSI SunGuide(SWRI) Server Software Work- stations Servers Keys Network Plans SWIFT Exist. Field Devices Field Devices Field Devices Existing Network Servers Work- stations Microsoft Cluster SunGuide (SWRI) Existing Furnished by FDOT F&I by DBF

24 Unique Project Issues STMC / SWIFT / SunGuide MOT
F&I by Southwest Research Institute (SWRI) STMC / SWIFT / SunGuide First deployment of SunGuide in a back- up mode at STMC Testing of STMC back-up functionality without disrupting SWIFT operations TMC software is normally integrated at the end of the project which could impact the schedule. Two contractors (SWRI and DBF) preforming time critical interdependent work. MOT HARB at Erie Road overpass will require MOT (lane closures) for installation as well as maintenance. Microsoft Cluster F&I by Design Build Firm Oracle Data Guard

25 Unique Project Issues Steep Slopes Conduit 8’ from Fence DMS
North of the Braden River North of West River Road Difficult installation Lane closures during installation and maintenance. No pull boxes in slopes - will make conduit transition from underground to bridge mount difficult Conduit 8’ from Fence Flooding areas could impact maintenance / reliability Numerous crossing of wet ditches Fence Proposed Conduit 8’ From Fence DBF may propose

26 Innovative Concepts Use of FDOT ERC system for all submittals
Expansion of the RTVM (Traceability Matrix) Include additional project requirements such as NEC Expand verification method (Factory, Stand-alone, Subsystem) Develop comprehensive field check lists using the RTVM Verification of as-built and ITSFM tool sheets with sub- foot accuracy equipment Specialty staff only as-needed STMC agreement to provide large meeting room to reduce CEI field office costs Project Share Site for exchange of large files
