Description

Fulton County’s Big Creek WRF is reaching capacity and the equipment is near the end of its useful life. The County needs to expand and upgrade the WRF, from 24 MGD to 38 MGD and achieve more stringent effluent limits. The County wanted a cost-effective expansion, maintain operational compliance during construction, provide input into the design and consider multiple options and innovative solutions. Progressive Design-Build was the ideal procurement method to meet these objectives.

Learning Objectives:

  • Owners and practitioners will hear the logic and process for selecting progressive design build as the method and the steps of the procurement.
  • Attendees will see the collaborative conceptual design process with the Owner (Engineering and Operations), the designers and the constructors developing technical and economic valuations.
  • Open discussion about the detailed design process with real time open book pricing to balance the tension between plant features and the County's budget.
  • Attendees will see the techniques used to develop the GMP and pick your pricing from equipment suppliers and subcontractors using the counties procurement practices.

    Speaker(s):

    • David Clark, PE, Director of Public Works, Fulton County, GA
    • Kelly Comstock, PE, Vice President, Brown and Caldwell
    • Pavel Mayfield, Project Director, Archer Western Contractors (a Walsh Group Company)
