Design Build/PPP/PPEA

Reid Engineering is a national leader in the design-build delivery method of Wastewater Treatment Facilities and Water/Sewer Infrastructure in the Industrial, Municipal and Federal Sectors. To date we have completed over 20 such facilities with this alternative delivery method having a wide range of contract values.

In contrast to a conventional Design-Bid-Build process, Design Build delivery is an integrated approach that will offer substantial value to the Owner in terms of guaranteed price, no contractor initiated change orders, overall reduced risk, reduced cost, streamlined process, and an accelerated design and construction schedule for the proposed project. The Design Build approach allows for sole source responsibility through the design builder and provides a collaborative working environment for the contractor and engineer as well as the Owner which promotes the team concept.

REC has been involved with Design Build Project Delivery for over 15 years in the Industrial, Municipal and Federal Sectors.  REC will partner with a preferred contractor to act as the Design Builder or Joint Venture Team to provide the construction portion of the project.

To date REC has been involved with several Municipal Design Build Infrastructure Projects and in every case the overall project cost and schedule has been reduced.  REC looks forward to adding value to your projects and working with you on your next Design Build Project in the near future.

Quote on Success from Joseph C. Schiebel, Interim Director for Caroline County, VA Department of Public Utilities/Works regarding the 1.5 MGD ENR WWTP Design Build Upgrade and Expansion project:

“The PPEA proposal from the MEB/REC Team to expand and upgrade the Caroline County Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant from a 0.5 MGD facility to a 1.5 MGD facility has far surpassed the County’s expectations of a PPEA project to date.  The MEB/REC Team has worked closely with staff to fully understand our needs and expectations of this project.  The success of this project was driven by a team where the Contractor knew how to get the job done and the Engineer having the experience to design what is required”
