Constructive Collaboration

In Southeast Texas, the challenges of a project site on Lake Conroe brought out the best of the Construction Manager at Risk delivery method. Designers and constructors interacted early on to determine how to construct a bridge and pipes over 60-feet-deep water and across the embankment without compromising dam safety. The 30-MGD pump station features three vertical turbine pumps in cans suspended from a platform over the lake, a 48-inch aerial pipe leaving the station on a bridge, and a pipeline crossing through the crest of the dam. It also has space for three future pumps and future parallel 48-inch pipe.
