April 13th delivered clear, sunny skies and a perfect day for the I-65 SE Indiana Groundbreaking Ceremony. The ceremony, officiated by Governor Eric Holcomb and INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness, kicked-off the 2018 construction season. Among the dignitaries and businessmen, E&B Paving’s Little Jake was front and center with shovel in hand as the ceremonial dirt began to fly.
The I-65 SE Indiana project is a $143 million Best Value Design Build which reconstructs and adds a travel lane to the interstate from US 50 to SR 58.
The E&B Paving / United Team was selected as the Preferred Proposer last May after going through a rigorous submittal process and proposing a solid, well thought-out plan that exceeded INDOT’s scoring criteria, providing several added-value elements to the project scope — one of which shortens the proposed project schedule by 44 days.
Congratulations to INDOT, the city of Fishers, and Hamilton County on the honor of being selected by the Indiana Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) as the Project of the Year 2017 for the New Interchange at I-69 and 106th Street project! The interchange is one of the first oval interchanges built in the United States and the ONLY ONE built over an interstate.
The Project of the Year Award is presented for the most outstanding or unique project built in Indiana and completed during the past year. Representatives from INDOT, the city of Fishers, Hamilton County, United, Corradino Group, and Walsh Construction Company (pictured above with 2018 ASCE President Robin Kemper) accepted the award at the Annual Meeting of ASCE during a luncheon. Prior to receiving the award, Project Manager Jeromy Richardson, PE and Lead Engineer Bill Curtis, PE gave a presentation showcasing the highlights of the New Interchange at I-69 and 106th Street project.

United Consulting was among 34 Indiana companies that were celebrated during a ceremony at the Statehouse to honor Indiana businesses that continue to stand up to daily challenges and give back to the community as a productive economic source.
To qualify for a Half Century Award, companies must demonstrate they are in full compliance with the Secretary of State, Department of Revenue, and the Department of Workforce Development and have been in operation for 50 to 99 continuous years.
The Indiana Chamber of Commerce (ICC) announced United Consulting is in the Winner’s Circle once again for the Best Places to Work in Indiana (BPWI), placing in the Medium Companies (75-150 employees) category. Winners were officially recognized during an awards ceremony May 3rd at the Indiana Convention Center (Sagamore Ballroom) in downtown Indianapolis.
The BPWI is an annual competition hosted by the ICC, in an effort to recognize outstanding companies that foster and promote a positive employee culture which is evident through the company’s appreciation and value shown toward each employee. The results are determined based on anonymous surveys which are submitted directly to a third party survey company by employees.
United has been selected as Best Places to Work in Indiana nine times and entered into the BPWI Hall of Fame in 2014. Hall of Fame companies are those that have been named a Best Place to Work in Indiana at least 60% of the time in the program’s history.
Congratulations to INDOT, the city of Fishers, and Hamilton County on the honor of being selected as the Grand Project Award Winner in the 30th Annual ACEC Indiana Engineering Excellence Awards Competition for the New Interchange at I-69 and 106th Street project! The interchange is one of the first oval interchanges built in the United States and the ONLY ONE built over an interstate.
Last November, the project was selected among a handful of Honor Award recipients who were in the running to be crowned as the Grand Project of the Year. Despite stiff competition, the interchange was announced during the Engineering Excellence Awards Banquet on March 15th as taking top honors for this year’s event.
United Consulting designed the new interchange and managed the project delivery including the professional services for topographic survey, roundabout operations, utility coordination, land acquisition management, and road, bridge, retaining wall, and hydraulic design.
