In 2005, the housing boom was in full explosion, and one outcome of that much growth was an increased need to handle the wastewater effluent. The City of Mesa, Arizona, had to meet the demands of a booming economy while keeping the current residents happy.
The existing wastewater tanks at the Greenfield Water Reclamation Plant had a huge problem with odor control, and needed to be upgraded. So how do you minimize the impact on neighbors (control odor and not impact daily life with construction inconveniences) AND beat an aggressive budget?
Working with other team members, we utilized Arizona’s recently legislated Construction Manager at Risk guidelines (which Sundt had a major role in helping get passed) and created a fast track project that beat the $180 million budget by $40 million.
