Slayden Constructors, Inc. (Slayden), a subsidiary of MWH Constructors, Inc., has been selected as the construction manager/general contractor (GM/GC) for a $27 million project for a new Water Treatment Plant in Lebanon, Ore. The project is scheduled to begin in May 2017, with a substantial completion date of December 2018.
The new water treatment plant will completely replace the City of Lebanon’s current facility, which is in need of updates and replacement. The new facility will have a capacity of 4.5 million gallons per day (mgd), with the capability to be upgraded to 8 mgd, and will include a raw water intake facility on the S. Santiam River. Other components of the project include a raw water pumping station and a membrane water treatment plant.
Slayden completed pre-construction services on the water treatment plant, which included an extensive value engineering process with the owner and Carollo Engineers to ensure the project was within the City’s budget.
“We are proud of our history of working with local communities, like Lebanon, to construct water facilities that meet the needs of its citizens, satisfy regulations and protect the environment,” said Jeff Tedder, senior project manager for Slayden. “The pre-construction process of working collaboratively with the City and Carollo to develop the final project has really streamlined the lead-up to construction. We look forward to continuing to build on the relationships developed through the project to collaboratively deliver this important infrastructure project to the community of Lebanon.”
“We believe that Slayden will lead an exemplary team to ensure constructability of these facilities in a timely matter,” said Ron Whitlatch, engineering services director for the City of Lebanon. “Furthermore, we look forward to working with Slayden to ensure the project meets both the City’s needs and budget, as well as creates positive relationships within our community.”
