Local firm to manage city's infrastructure initiative

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

American Structurepoint has been tapped by the Indianapolis Department of Public Works as program manager for the city’s “RebuildIndy” infrastructure-improvement initiative.

RebuildIndy is the formal name of the massive infrastructure improvements Mayor Greg Ballard wants to make with $425 million in expected proceeds from selling the city’s water and sewer utilities to Citizens Energy Group.

The City-County Council recently authorized the city to negotiate a formal agreement with Citizens. The council and the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission still would need to approve that deal for the infrastructure initiative to be fully funded.

Currently RebuildIndy has $88 million in previously committed transportation funds.

The program will focus on improvements to streets, sidewalks and bridges, along with flood and drainage projects.

Contract terms with American Structurepoint are still being negotiated, said DPW spokeswoman Molly Deuberry.

Indianapolis-based American Structurepoint was one of four companies to express interest in the city project, she said. The 44-year-old firm, which also has offices in South Bend and Columbus, Ohio, has worked on a number of high-profile projects, including design work on the Interstate 69 expansion.

Besides helping the city develop strategies on project selection and implementation, American Structurepoint also will work with the city to manage its stormwater capital-improvement program, DPW said.

The federal government has mandated massive improvements to stop raw sewage from pouring into local waterways during heavy rains.
