Freese and Nichols provided program management and construction management services for the Eagle Mountain Water Treatment Plant Phase III Expansion. The City had to expand the plant immediately from 70 to 105 MGD to meet projected demands from rapid growth in the service area. The expansion included a high‐service pump station, raw water intake and pump station on Eagle Mountain Lake and construction of a parallel raw water pipeline.
Freese and Nichols provided program management, evaluation of membrane technology applications, design coordination, prequalification of bidders, and construction of the improvements under three separate construction contracts on an accelerated schedule. Our program/construction manager was instrumental in identifying creative tie-in sequences for the new improvements that allowed the plant to continue to operate during construction.
Our construction services staff implemented a time saving, bidder prequalification process that eliminated delays after the bid opening and resulted in award consideration to highly qualified contractors.
Our team also evaluated treatment processes with a fast-track approach. Freese and Nichols also served as the construction manager for both the initial construction of the Eagle Mountain WTP and the subsequent expansion of the facility under Phase II.
