TSMC Northwest Transportation:

Four Miles Built in Record Time

When the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) invested $12 billion to bring their semiconductor plant to Phoenix, Hunter Contracting Co. (Hunter) was selected to provide and manage the construction services on an expedited schedule. Hunter delivered nearly four miles of arterial streets, including asphalt, curb, gutter, sidewalk, drainage facilities, streetlights, and landscaping to support ingress and egress to the future TSMC site and surrounding region.

Hunter led the extensive Project scheduling, communication, and coordination efforts with more than 16 third-party stakeholders, including Kimley-Horn, Southwest Gas, City of Phoenix water and sewer, Cox, Lumen, ASLD, ADOT, and various subcontractors. Even on an accelerated construction schedule, work included full roadway build-out, 26,000 LF of storm drainpipe, 160,000 CY of fill, and 30,000 CY drainage excavation. This coordination enabled the project to meet the required timeframe and was one of the greatest accomplishments in this Project's successful completion.
