The Clean Water Partnership (CWP) would like to congratulate Iberia Miles, CEO of TreKnot Organization, for being awarded contracted work on the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel Expansion Project. TreKnot, a minority, woman-owned small business, currently subcontracts with Capital City Associates for the CWP and provides Community Outreach services in the Alternative Compliance Program.
Treknot’s extensive background in Compliance, Small Business Supportive Services, Community Outreach/Public Engagement and Training (OSHA, Flagger, First AID/AED and CPR) led to the 3-year award in which the organization will perform Civil Rights Compliance for the I-64 Design joint venture (JV). Furthermore, Mrs. Miles will manage and assist the JV to comply with the VDOT Civil Rights requirements as it pertains to the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)/ Small, Women-owned, and Minority-owned Business (SWaM) Goals and supportive services, Labor Compliance, and reporting.
Mrs. Miles has shared that her work with the CWP has provided opportunities to enhance relationship management skills by establishing and maintaining substantial relationships while performing outreach on many projects within a heavy construction schedule. She added that as with many construction projects, working with multiple stakeholder personalities have been challenging, however having the support of CWP personnel to navigate those situations, has provided opportunities to engage in more professional and better solutions for all-something that she will be able to utilize on this new project. Mrs. Miles will continue to perform community outreach services for the CWP and everyone wishes her much success on this exciting new project!
