Introduction

Welcome to Thunder River. I’m the mayor of this city, and you are part of a team bidding on a contract to build us a new bridge. Our city officials will award the contract to the team with the best proposal. The winning proposal will not only meet our specifications, but will also demonstrate the team’s overall professionalism in the following areas:

·         Engineering

·         Material selection and fabrication

·         Design and testing

·         Aesthetics and beauty

·         Historical background knowledge

·         Service and maintenance

·         Legal and financial

 
Good luck and may God bless your work together.
