Clear, coordinated and constant communication of project-related information to staff, stakeholders and the general public is critical to project success.
Our extensive experience provides a proven process to engage contractors, the public, municipal officials, utility representatives, materials testing firms, schools, and other agencies.
Using dedicated project-specific websites, e-mail blasts, and social media channels, progress updates are disseminated in a timely and efficient manner. This promotes an informed public, and reduces inquiries directed to the client.
Stakeholder Coordination Experience

Following a major flood event there was severe damage to the roadways, the sanitary sewer was filled with flood debris, and numerous depressions and sinkholes began to appear on 2nd Street SE over the sewer; indicating soil migration into the pipeline.
Johnsburg Road Widening and Reconstruction
The project consisted of the construction of the first roundabout in McHenry County in the Downtown area of the Village of Johnsburg along with widening the road from Spring Grove Road to Fairview Avenue.
Interceptor Improvements Incorporate “Complete Streets”
Richfield, MN, Edina, MN
The Edina-Richfield Interceptor Improvements project constructed a regional sanitary sewer across Richfield to accommodate redevelopment in Edina. Standard MCES practice is to repair streets in a fashion similar to their original condition. However, HR Green used a Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) approach to engage the public in the design of 75th and 76th Streets in Richfield. The result is Richfield’s first “Complete Street” system, which encourages walking, bicycling and mass transit use. This method was also less costly for MCES, resulting in a win-win outcome for Richfield and MCES.
