INNOVATION IN WATER AND WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANTS
Walsh Construction Co.
Arizona CAP Water Treatment Plant Expansion Project
Walsh Construction undertook a $76.9 million contract to expand the capacity
of the CAP Water Treatment Plant for the city of Scottsdale, Ariz., within a
period of four years and three months. Bentley software including PlantSpace
and GEOPAK drastically reduced errors in the field by aiding in full coordination
among various scopes of work and disciplines early in the construction phase.
The project team created a 3D model representing virtually every component
of the project, which enabled evaluation of the constructability of the proposed
design and better decisions about construction staging. Visualization of the
structures gave the project managers the power to better plan, coordinate, review,
verify, and communicate—all of which were crucial for successful delivery.
The ability to produce 3D designs with the associated 4D data in a managed environment
helps us to deliver a superior and more cost-effective project solution for
our clients and a better global environment.
