Supply Chain Engagement

On the Northeast Water Purification Plant in Houston, TX, Victaulic worked with WDBC members CDM Smith, Jacobs, Carollo, Balfour Beatty, and McCarthy during the engineering phase to address piping differential settlement entering and exiting structures. The solution was incorporated into the design at an early stage, and Victaulic was released to begin production to allow for delivery during the early works excavation phase.

Water/wastewater projects are becoming larger and more complex. Our industry is continuously innovating to maximize the productivity of existing and new plants. Recent events related to the COVID-19 outbreak may have permanent changes in the way plants are designed and built. The design and procurement process for collaborative-delivery projects requires early involvement of supply chain partners to reduce risks for a successful proposal and construction.
