MWH was honored with the Project Achievement Award by the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA), South Atlantic chapter. The award recognizes professionalism and excellence in the construction management efforts for the Renewable Water Resources (ReWa) Piedmont Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant. The first place award was presented at the Annual Awards Banquet in June 2013 at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. The award was given in the category of infrastructure projects greater than $10 million, less than $50 million.
MWH served as the construction manager-at-risk on the $44.3 million project. The treatment facility, which is located on the west side of the Saluda River near Piedmont, SC, was designed to regionalize treatment of wastewater by treating flows from several existing wastewater treatment plants and areas currently not served. The facility has an initial capacity of 4 mgd with future plans to expand to 12 mgd. The projectbegan in July 2011 and reached final completion in April 2013. This past fall, MWH took on the challenge of completing the facility two weeks ahead of the original contracted date. On December 11, 2012, they surpassed their goal by reaching substantial completion three weeks ahead of schedule.
ReWa’s goals for this project were to meet new water quality standards, promote a cleaner environment, and protect the public health and water quality, while providing and developing the necessary sewer infrastructure for the growing economy.
The MWH construction management team of Mike Pindak and Tyler Bly, along with Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager Greg Dills, and Johnny McCall and David Babb of ReWa attended the banquet to accept the award.
