Construction Management is likely the most complex event for any client. Typically, there are multiple contracts, strict budgetary constraints, time limits and the potential legal issues quickly grow. Hence, retaining the right construction management team, resolves a number of these issues at the outset.
Our Construction Management Services include:
- Project Management & Administration
- Materials Management & Testing
- Quality Management
- Cost Estimating
- Risk Management & Claims Resolution
- Project Controls
- Document Management
- Safety Management
- Construction Management – For Fee
Our construction engineers and certified technicians are familiar with inspecting and testing large concrete pours with special mix criteria such as high strength early setups, high temperature, fiber reinforced, and various types of admixtures. The staff is also very experienced with testing several types of grouts, as well as in-place density testing of soils and bituminous pavements for compaction. We also provide AWS/NDT staff for nondestructive testing on various welded connections and bolt torque connections.
Key Past Performance – Blue Plains Advanced WWTP Construction Management
Allied provides construction management, resident engineering and inspection services, quality control, safety oversight, and contract administration in support of a major capital improvement program at the Blue Plains Wastewater Treatment Plant. Blue Plains, as the largest advanced wastewater treatment plant in the United States, handles 70 percent of wastewater for the entire Washington, D.C. area, serves 2.1 million people.
Allied is responsible for six contracts with a total constructed value of $419 million. The capital improvement program at Blue Plains focuses on increasing the efficiency of the plant and improving the quality of plant effluent. We increased the plant capacity from 309 million gallons per day (mgd) to 370 mgd at normal flows and 511 mgd to 740 mgd at peak flows.
Allied oversees the improvements on:
- The plant’s effluent filtration system
- Raw wastewater pumping station
- Secondary treatment facilities
- High voltage cable and substation replacement
- New alternate disinfection facilities
- Improvements to the chemical storage systems
- Sludge dewatering and handling improvements
- Additional centrifuges
- Construction of a new dry polymer storage and distribution system
We manage various construction contracts that include coordinating site activities and resolving conflicts among the authority, contractors, consultants, designers, and plant personnel.
Allied works closely with plant operators and contractors to plan and schedule ways to support work while minimizing disruptions to plant operations. In all cases where automation was included, we provided formal training for the plant operators, primarily during the final testing and prove-out prior to acceptance.
