Facilities and Master Planning
Planning for the future – assessing risk, evaluating options – is always a challenge. For utilities providing water, wastewater, and stormwater services to their customers, nothing short of public health and preserving the natural environment hang in the balance. Our clients face pressures from growing and shifting demands on individual facilities and overall systems, as well as changing regulations that must be met using an array of ever developing technologies. All of these factors must be balanced against the cost of implementing a range of potential alternatives.
Hazen and Sawyer recognizes the complexity and diversity of facilities and master planning challenges, and maintains a group of seasoned experts devoted to this type of work. Personnel in this group bring together a wide spectrum of abilities and knowledge to successfully plan for impending and potential issues. Many of them have spent decades obtaining the broad base of experience necessary to provide meaningful advice to our clients. They include computer modelers who have worked with some of the most sophisticated software available, engineers who have designed and managed the construction of the most advanced water and wastewater facilities in the world, and program managers who have implemented system-wide improvements for cities of all sizes.
Our facilities and master planning efforts often include:
- Water system distribution modeling
- Sewer collection and transmission modeling
- Computational fluid dynamics analysis
- Conceptual facilities design
- Cost estimating
- Overall Program and construction scheduling
These activities allow our planning group to develop alternatives which are then assessed and evaluated. Even with limited available data, we are able to draw on extensive real world experience to deliver sound recommendations that are executable. Working together with you, the master planning team members will chart a course of action that most efficiently and effectively meets your goals.
Planning for the future is always a challenge, but Hazen and Sawyer can help. Since 1951, we’ve been providing clients with solutions that meet today’s challenges, and prepare them for tomorrow’s.
