Township of Upper Dublin - Pine Run & Rapp Run Storm Water Management

Township of Upper Dublin - Pine Run & Rapp Run Storm Water Management

The Township of Upper Dublin was long awaiting a way to correct flooding that would help stabilize property values within the township as well as the 500 acre area surrounding the Fort Washington office park, which employs 14,500 people. Two flood retarding structures were built, complete with earthen embankments. One is located on the Pine Run and the other on the Rapp Run, including four areas of wetlands with over 750 new trees. The structures are 834 and 700 feet long respectively, complete with bridges for emergency vehicles and the public.

D’Huy helped the Township assemble the front-end bidding specifications. We also completed a constructability review for the project, coordinated materials testing requirements and assembled bidding strategies for the project. The bid form assembled by D’Huy included unit price and alternate bids that provided the Township with flexibility during the award to ensure the project budget would be achieved.

D’Huy provided construction administration for the 11 month construction phase that included the implementation of a web-based construction management system allowing all shop drawings, RFIs and project documentation to be transmitted, reviewed and approved electronically. D’Huy conducted all project progress meetings, monitored construction and construction testing in the field, oversaw the project schedule, and coordinated the testing as well as all owner training.

The project was on time and on budget with no change orders.
