Design Build–Wastewater Treatment Facilities
The project included the design and construction of a 0.015MGD MBR Wastewater Treatment Facility, a maintenance building, a new restroom, and remodel of the existing restroom. This sustainable system was designed and constructed for zero net water loss.
Using the Best Value system’s Pre-Award Phase and the Weekly Risk Report, the owner reduced its oversight efforts, eliminated contractor generated change orders, and increased their satisfaction as compared to conventionally managed projects. During the 2 plus years of design and construction there were less than 4 official project meetings and only met with the DB on site every 5-6 weeks during construction. The Design Builder (DB) was able to provide additional quality items, including project landscaping, to a project based on savings by using the BV procurement system.
