City of Frederick Wastewater Treatment Plant Design-Build

Frederick, Maryland

The City of Frederick owns and operates a wastewater treatment plant to support it’s commercial an residential population. As part of a design-build contract for several motor control centers and building additions to the facility, KCI provided environmental and geotechnical engineering in addition to laboratory and field inspection services for several structures, including:

  • East 480 VAC Substation
  • West 480 VAC Substation
  • Grit Removal Process Building
  • Pump Station Building Addition
  • Storage and Maintenance Building
  • Medium Voltage Plant Power Distribution
  • Pump Station Motor Control Center Replacement
  • Solids Building Motor Control Center Replacement

Working with contractor Mid-Atlantic Utilities, Inc., our team performed investigations to identify preferred alternatives, disciplinary coordination, and extent of scope and developed preliminary designs. Geotechnical engineers explored the subsurface conditions site using an ATV-mounted drill rig and auger borings. A geotechnical report documented findings and provided construction earthwork recommendations to aid in the design and construction of the proposed building structures.

The team completed additional site investigations, including utilities test pit, survey, field dimensions and critical mechanical and electrical terminations. Engineers prepared and submitted documentation for needed permits through the design phase. KCI then provided construction services including inspection and documentation, scheduling, contractor coordination, progress meetings, final punch list inspections and as-built drawings.
