HICAPS, Inc. along with teaming partners Hoffman Building Technologies and George White Consulting are pleased to begin the installation of advanced utility meters at the West Texas VA Health Care System in Big Spring, TX. This is the first of six other VA medical centers and five National Cemeteries within Veteran’s Integrated Service Network 18 where we are designing and installing advanced steam, chilled water, irrigation, potable water, and natural gas meters that will remotely communicate data to a national repository. We are pleased to be part of the VA’s energy management efforts in helping improve their capability of measuring their energy consumption within a percentage of their over 5,000 owned buildings and 150 million gross square feet nationwide.

Route 58 Bypass

Another success for HICAPS & BHI. Schedules were produced by David Steger of BHI with HICAPS' assistance and project reviews and audits over the last 3 ½ years.

As we enter our 4th (and final) season of the $83 million Rte 58 Bypass BHI is poised to complete the project almost two months early. Since the notice to proceed over 2 million cubic yards of cut/fill have been handled and 8 bridges constructed. Careful planning and monitoring of the plan over the 4 years of project has allowed BHI to achieve all of its construction season goals (8months of intense production and 4 months of winter slow down per year). Season goals are set from March – Nov each year.

NTP was given 10/02/07. Projected substantial completion of the 5.3 mile Bypass is 09/01/11.
