What is the HIC?

As the Horizontal Integrated Contractor (HIC) for the National Western Center, Hensel Phelps will manage the Work Order Based Integrated Construction Contract to enable the Horizontal Portfolio for Phases 1 and 2 of the capital build. Project elements include preparations to make the site ready for construction, riverfront open space, sitewide infrastructure, site investigations and survey, National Western Drive, Bettie Cram Drive, and DRIR rail consolidation.

Workforce

In conjunction with the Mayor’s Office of the National Western Center, the HIC team has created a pilot workforce development program to connect individuals to industry jobs for the HIC project. The pilot program includes outreach, training and employment opportunities.

By connecting industry and job seekers to the NWC program, we are hoping to support the construction industry, build a qualified workforce, enrich the local economy and improve the quality of life for residents through better jobs and additional skills.
