MoARK Water Company H Highway Water System Improvements Project
The MoARK Water Company H Highway Water System Improvements project is a great example of what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
In 2017, a preliminary design and engineering report for a 16-mile water distribution extension project was in the hands of another engineering firm and on its way for approval from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) when the firm went out of business. MoARK Water Company issued a Request for Qualifications and selected OWN, Inc. over several other interested firms to be their Project Engineer in 2018.
The OWN team didn’t miss a beat, picking up where the other firm left off and quickly got to work reevaluating the design, revising and finishing the design, and obtaining easements. Plans were revised accordingly to finish the design elements and bring the project to life.
OWN was proud to offer the MoARK Water Company the following engineering services:
- Design of 40,000 feet of waterline
- Right of way acquisition in cooperation with utilities attorney including over 70 easements
- Bidding services
- Construction administration
- Pay estimates
- A resident project representative to provide construction oversight, post construction services, and all other engineering work-related to administering a USDA-RD and CDBG financed project
The project was completed in 2020 with a final project cost of $4.7M, coming in under the original contract bid amount.
