Professional Recognition




Partnering Success in Motion




The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Districts 5, 6, 7 & 10





Each year Caltrans recognizes the project teams on their ongoing construction projects that have demonstrated success during the prior year through the use of partnering. Caltrans presents Partnering Success in Motion Awards to celebrate these successes.


During 2018, ATI Systems provided the partnering facilitation services for seven Caltrans projects. Five were recognized for project's success to the degree that they were awarded 2019 Partnering Success in Motion Awards.


These award winning projects are recognized to be among the very best managed construction projects by each Caltrans District. 


ATI Systems' partnering facilitation services have guided all of the partnering activities for these projects.






Craig Road Project

Named Nevada’s Best



Southwest Contractor Magazine



The Partnering for this project was

 facilitated by ATI Systems


The following is from the Nevada Department of  Transportation's "Contractor Bulletin" dated March 18, 2010


NDOT’s Craig Road project, completed ahead of schedule in July 2009, took a vital North Las Vegas roadway up and over railroad tracks. Now, the project is elevated once again with an award as Southwest Contractor magazine’s best Nevada transportation construction of 2009.


The project’s centerpiece is a grade separation spanning Union Pacific Railroad tracks. The cast-inplace, pre-stressed box girder bridge now rises 40 feet above the railroad tracks, carrying traffic safely over the railroad and helping to alleviate congestion from traffic that previously had to stop at the tracks.


“Before the project, traffic backed up on both sides of Craig Road, and even onto the freeway, when a train went by,” NDOT Resident Engineer K.D. Warach, P.E., explained.


The project also widened over 1 mile of Craig Road, expanding the major thoroughfare from 4 to 6 lanes between Berg Street and Pecos Road. Also included were retaining walls, ramp and landscaping improvements, as well as major utility work such as the installation of a new water line to service Nellis Air Force Base.


All of the work was accomplished 2 months ahead of schedule, thanks to dedicated teamwork between NDOT, contractor Frehner Construction and partners City of North Las Vegas, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada and Nellis Air Force Base.


“The project used a formal partnering process successfully to resolve issues quickly and therefore finished the project 60 days ahead of schedule,” Warach said.


The approximately $34 million improvement project is already enhancing travel and safety on the busy road that sees more than 50,000 vehicles daily.
