Waterline Improvements – Settlers Grove & Settlers Park

Gunda Corporation worked with the City of Sugar Land to prepare construction documents for the replacement of the existing water lines in Settlers Grove Section 1 and Settlers Park Sections 2 and 4. The project consisted of replacement of approximately 27,000 feet of existing water lines in residential subdivisions and along a major roadway. The existing water lines vary in diameter from 4 to 16 inches and were constructed in the 1980’s using asbestos cement (AC) pipe. The City has experienced a significant number of pipe failures within the project area.

The project scope included public and private utility coordination, surveying, geotechnical engineering, storm water pollution prevention plans, project specifications, estimate of quantities, cost estimate and development of construction timeline. Following approval of the plans and specifications, Gunda Corporation assisted the City in bidding the project by providing plans and specifications for prospective bidders, attending the Pre-Bid conference, preparing addendums as appropriate, tabulating the bids received, providing a recommendation to the City of the qualified low bidder and providing construction phase services.
