Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed
As the most complex element of the ASR Program, the Surface Water Treatment Plant (WTP) and River Intake was on a critical path. With eight other design-bid-build construction packages totaling nearly $150 million intersecting with the WTP, the city chose an integrated design-build approach to best combine allocated risk, improve value and meet schedules.
The joint venture team of Burns & McDonnell, Alberici Constructors and CAS Constructors (ABC Partners) designed and built the Surface WTP, river intake and pretreatment facilities as part of the City of Wichita’s Aquifer Storage and Recovery Program. As the largest and most complex package of the program, ABC Partners managed design and construction interfaces with eight other programmatic projects to ultimately deliver a state-of-the-art treatment system that saved the city nearly $20 million.
