Client: Chicago Infrastructure Trust
Prime: Ameresco, Inc.
Timeline: 219 days
Evari is providing enterprise GIS services for the largest street lighting upgrade project in the United States. This includes atlas and data reconciliation, field audit services, reporting throughout the audit, integration with Silver Spring Network’s adaptive lighting control system, and final data submission. Additionally, Evari is responsible for developing a standard operating procedure for assessing lighting infrastructure conditions, and carrying out this assessment for all infrastructure. Evari staff is field-checking approximately 327,800 street lights throughout the city of Chicago. This project is on budget, on schedule, and ongoing.
Obstacles overcome include completing field work in high-crime hotspots and maintaining the highest levels of accuracy during accelerated timeline. Evari also exceeded their commitment to hiring more than 60% Minority Business Enterprise/Women Business Enterprise (MBE/WBE) staff.
