The Birkdale Lift Station, Force Main and Emergency Flow Diversion Structure project was completed in September 2013. Freese and Nichols' scope included the study, design and construction phase services for the project. During the bid phase, the project was divided up into two separate contracts. One contract was for the construction of the 20-inch force main and the other contract was for the construction of the 9.8-MGD lift station and HDD bore underneath the Guadalupe River. The project was split to allow local contractors to bid the force main and to prevent general contractor markup on the line work. The City saved almost $200,000 by implementing this innovative bid approach.
