Construction Management

Hazen and Sawyer was selected to perform Construction Management Services for the eight major construction packages that comprise the Western Wake Regional Wastewater Management Facilities based in North Carolina.

Hazen and Sawyer is currently directing the upgrade of the 285-mgd Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department’s South District WWTP to meet High Level Disinfection treatment standards. More than half of the 15 construction contracts have already been completed on time and under budget.

The Conner Creek CSO facility, capable of treating up to two billion gallons per year of peak sewer overflow, was online four months ahead of schedule and within the original budget.

During expansion of the Paerdegat Basin CSO Control Facility, we oversaw construction of the deepest cutoff slurry wall in the area – 200-feet deep and 1,900-feet long – in a densely populated area with a groundwater table only 10 to 15 feet below grade.

Construction of the Manhattan Pump Station expansion was completed four months ahead of consent order schedule milestones, avoiding millions of dollars in potential fines.

To provide safe drinking water to the urban service areas of La Romana, San Cristobal, and San Francisco de Macoris, the National Institute of Water and Sewage of the Dominican Republic (INAPA) retained the Biwater/Sinercon Consortium for the Design-Build delivery of three 23-MGD Water Treatment Plants and associated infrastructure. In turn, Biwater U.S.A. retained Hazen and Sawyer to provide engineering design and construction management services for the project.

For Detroit Water and Sewerage Department’s 240-mgd Water Works Park Facility we provided construction phase services as Owner’s Representative for this design-build project, including oversight of design and construction, and the creation of training and O&M manuals.

Following completion of planning and design, we performed construction administration and inspection services for expansion of the Neuse River WWTP to 60 mgd, including nine construction contracts encompassing improvements to various treatment processes, emergency power generation, and tertiary filter retrofits for nitrogen removal.

Building today’s public works infrastructure is a complex task. Even small projects often consist of multiple contracts. Add in legal requirements, limited workspace, tight budgets, and regulatory-driven schedules, and the challenges quickly multiply. That’s where Hazen and Sawyer’s Construction Management (CM) group can help.

Resources and Experience to Tackle Your Toughest Job

Acting as construction manager on over $5 billion worth of recent projects, we have managed programs spanning multiple sites and involving dozens of contractors and hundreds of subcontractors. Our CM group can provide:

• Cost control and claim avoidance/minimization
• Scheduling and critical path analyses
• Resident engineering and inspection
• Control systems integration and troubleshooting
• Assistance with startup, training, operations and maintenance
• Permitting assistance

Specialists in Critical Infrastructure

The goal of effective construction management is to integrate the design and construction phases of a project and ensure that the work is of the highest quality – all while keeping things on schedule and within budget.

From full-time on-site inspection through operations and start-up services, Hazen and Sawyer’s construction management team provides quality assurance and quality control, technical experts, constructability experts, and design-construction liaisons.

And because a significant portion of our work involves large projects that provide vital public services, we’ve developed expertise dealing with critical infrastructure, difficult working conditions, and new technology.

The Hazen and Sawyer Difference

Intense, hands-on management is basic to a successful construction project – and so is having a wealth of experienced technical experts. But along with world-class technical skill and managerial experience, we offer something extra: a client-focused approach to CM that ensures your success is our top priority.
