Regional And Local Contractors Case Studies
GEORGE H.W. BUSH'S FINAL FAREWELL
This historically significant and sensitive project required intense collaboration with multiple officials, city and university leaders, and national security representatives. Additionally, quick planning and execution was required to accomplish the task in an expedited timeline.
AKRON ART MUSEUM
AWP had the opportunity to facilitate the installation of an ambitious and eye-catching work of art, by Tony Feher, at the Akron Art Museum in Akron, Ohio. The piece, titled Buoy, consists of three 54-inch tall red marine buoys that hang from the museum’s cantilevered roof.
The installation of Buoy required the use of a large crane, which, for the cantilever overhanging East Market Street, would interrupt the usual traffic pattern on the arterial road, right in the heart of downtown Akron. In order to protect the crane and installation crew from the heavy traffic and maintain smooth traffic flow, professional traffic control services were a necessity.
PLAYHOUSE SQUARE DISTRICT
In 2014, Playhouse Square, Cleveland’s historic theater district was completely transformed. The downtown historic theater district underwent a major renovation with $16 million in signage and streetscape improvements, which required extensive traffic control planning, equipment and site safety considerations.
