Providing clean and safe drinking water.

Our team led the project through tendering, construction, and commissioning of the new treatment plant and distribution system to ensure the community has a reliable source of clean, safe drinking water. A significant challenge during the project was during development. When the tenders closed, the low bid price was higher than the pre-tender estimates and available project budget. We had to act quickly to initiate a two-pronged approach to address the issue. Our team presented cost-saving alternatives through a value engineering session to successfully secure additional federal funding to allow the contract to be awarded with minimal disruption to the project schedule.
