Through our concurrent value engineering process, Wood/Patel identified that the recommended system include storm drains in both Sweetwater and 83rd Avenues at the budgeted project construction cost while providing a greater level of protection than identified in the ADMP/SDMP. Wood/Patel then presented the project to the public and achieved community buy-in. Subsequent to the public meeting, Wood/Patel further refined the recommended alternative hydrologic and hydraulic analyses which again reduced project costs and allowed the City to incorporate additional infrastructure improvements all within the City’s original budget.
The recommended system provided a higher level of protection (10-year) and was designed and constructed for $1.9 million versus the original budget of $3.3 million, a 40% savings to the City. The final project incorporated additional improvements including a full width AC overlay (conventional and rubberized), a traffic video detection system, public involvement meetings, and construction management services.
