Design Insights for Fast Tracking Construction on a Large Water Supply Project
This presentation details design decisions for a water supply project in Chicagoland with approximately 10 miles of large diameter water transmission main, 5 miles of cured-in-place pipe, 2 pump stations, and a standpipe. All of this is being designed and constructed within 20 months. Key decisions were made to accelerate design and fast track the construction schedule. Insights into pre-procurement, permitting, easement and property acquisition, and others are discussed.
