Tecxtrans Engineers (TE) teamed up with Specialty Transit, Inc., (STI) a construction contractor, to pursue the Franklin project as a partnership-type joint venture (TE/STI). STI was interested in this project for two reasons, one being that this project represented a move into a new region of the country strategic to STI's growth, and the second was that they were highly qualified to do infrastructure type construction associated with intelligent transportation systems. Marc Stanton was the managing director of the joint venture, and was responsible for STI's work, while Ethan served as TE's representative. TE was responsible for design and STI for construction work. Marc has substituted electronics hardware in the struggle to keep costs within the guaranteed maximum. The project is approaching 35% completion, and Ethan reflects on the cooperative relationship between his firm and Specialty Transit.
