    AECOM Projects

    AECOM offers the capabilities to design, build, finance, operate and maintain infrastructure assets in Wisconsin across a range of markets.  Whether we serve clients at one phase of the project lifecycle or throughout it, our role is to apply creative vision, technical expertise, interdisciplinary insight, and diverse experience to address complex challenges in new and better ways. We help our clients deliver critical resources and services to people, improve the places where they live and work, and sustain a world in which we can all flourish.  The following are some AECOM projects.


    Movable 17th Street Bridge over the East Twin River - Two Rivers, Wisconsin

    AECOM (URS legacy) provided bridge inspection, feasibility studies, preliminary design and final design for the replacement of an existing double leaf bascule bridge crossing of the East Twin River in Two Rivers, Wisconsin.  AECOM worked on the planning, design and construction management for this project.   The new movable bridge consists of a single leaf through-girder rolling lift bascule span flanked on each end by single span PPC girder approaches.



    Program Management Services for Large Water Project – Dallas, Texas

    AECOM is providing program management services for a $2.3 billion, 350 mgd raw water pipeline transmission system for the Tarrant Regional Water District and Dallas Water Utilities. These two entities have taken an unprecedented approach to regional water supply by combining their resources to connect the water supplies through the planning, design, construction and operation of the Integrated Pipeline Project (IPL). Leading the design and construction oversight components of the program, AECOM is facilitating and managing 25 professional services contracts for design, survey, geotechnical, environmental, permits and specialty studies and land acquisition of nearly 900 parcels.



    WisDOT State Traffic Operation Center On-Site Control Room Operations Services



    AECOM provides support to the daily operation of the WisDOT Statewide Traffic Operations Center (STOC). The STOC is a 24/7 facility that requires approximately 11 full time staff working in 3 shifts per week of additional staffing to maintain service.  AECOM provides the staffing necessary to meet this additional need and the services needed to develop and execute the processes and protocols for safe and efficient movement of people and goods across the State of Wisconsin and the Great Lakes Region.  Effective control room operations decrease user delay and increase reliability, safety and quality of life for Wisconsin’s highway users.

    Corporate Social Responsibility

    AECOM is committed to meeting our obligations as a global corporate citizen. We do this in numerous ways: through the services we provide; by donating professional and technical expertise; volunteerism; matching contributions to support important causes and helping reduce the impacts of natural disasters.  Each office looks for local ways to give back to the community as well as what is done a national level.   We are pleased to share some of the ways we are helping to make the world a better place.

    Milwaukee River Keeper Clean-Up

    The Milwaukee River Keeper Clean-Up is an event that takes place each spring in Milwaukee. There are numerous rivers and other bodies of water in the Milwaukee area, so there are multiple locations throughout the community where groups gather to clean up our waterways. The Milwaukee office usually does the clean-up at Lakeshore State Park.


    Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk to Cure Diabetes

    The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is held in locations all around the world, and occurs every September. The Walk raises funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes.  Each year, we have numerous participants from the Milwaukee office participate or donate.  This activity always boosts morale and sense of family within the office each year, along with providing support to others throughout the community.


    Food and Toy Donations for Thanksgiving and Christmas

    The Milwaukee office participates in a number of Holiday charity activities, in the hopes of providing a source of food or holiday gifts to local families who need it.  The Milwaukee office has held traditional food drives, as well as creating and selling an employee cookbook and donating all proceeds to the local Feeding America chapter.  The Milwaukee office also held a toy drive for “Toys for Tots” to collect toys for less fortunate children in the community. 


    Raising Scholarships for Future Engineers

    The ASCE Scholarship Golf Outing is held to provide scholarships to civil engineering students from local universities (Marquette University, the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), and the University of Wisconsin). There are two office employees that are on the ASCE committee. With the help of the Milwaukee office and others in the community, ASCE raised over $10,000 for the Scholarship fund each of the last 3 years.

    STEM Forward (formerly Engineers & Scientists of Milwaukee, or ESM) was founded in 1905 and is an advocate and clearinghouse for all things STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), and is a provider of STEM awareness and outreach activities.  The STEM golf outing last year raised over $15,000 in scholarships provided to students studying in STEM-related fields.  The Milwaukee Office sponsors both of these events, and a large number of office employees participate in these golf outings each year.


    STEM Future City Competition

    STEM holds a Future City competition each year between local middle schools. Students design their own virtual city while incorporating their science, technology, engineering, and math skills. The teams work with a teacher and local engineer mentor throughout the process. Each team hones their presentation and writing skills as they compete with the hopes of moving on to the National Future City Championship.  Milwaukee office employees have become Future City mentors and judges, helping mold young minds one team at a time. These individuals take time out of their schedules to meet with the students on a regular basis, teach them aspects of their field and how to incorporate those ideas and methods into the Future City designs.


    Waukesha Women’s Center

    For one of our Days of Service, the Milwaukee Office volunteered at the Women’s Center in the City of Waukesha. The shelter was founded in 1977 and has served many women and children in need of a safe-haven. Eleven staff, family, and friends devoted a Saturday in the fall of 2013 to help paint at the shelter. In addition to painting four staff offices, the volunteers worked on artistic displays created to raise awareness of domestic violence and represent women that were killed during incidents of domestic violence.
