Broomfield, Colo., January 5, 2012 - MWH Constructors is the winner of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) Rocky Mountain Region’s 2011 Design-Build Award for its work on the wastewater pretreatment facility for The Dannon Company, Inc. in West Jordan, Utah. MWH Constructors  was honored in the Industrial/Process/Research Facilities category.

Substantial completion was achieved in March 2011 after just 110 days of work. The multi-million dollar wastewater pretreatment facility allows for an increase in yogurt production at Dannon’s West Jordan manufacturing plant, provides for odor control and meets environmental discharge requirements. A progressive design-build approach was used to maximize collaboration between MWH and Dannon and resulted in delivery of the project on time and with no interruptions to the existing facility’s operations.

“The success of this project stemmed from our dedicated project team that worked in collaboration with The Dannon Company,” said Blair M. Lavoie, PE, President of MWH Constructors. “Our goal is to meet client needs through the use of industry-leading delivery methods and we’re honored to be recognized by DBIA Rocky Mountain Region for this project.”

MWH Constructors was presented with the award during the 2011 DBIA Rocky Mountain Awards Lunch and Annual Members meeting held in December in Denver, Colorado.

DBIA Rocky Mountain Region’s mission is to promote the value of design-build project delivery and teach the effective integration of design and construction services to ensure success for owners and design and construction practitioners.
