South Columbus Water Resources Facility Wins ACEC Georgia Award

6 / April / 2018

Barge Design Solutions recently won a 2018 ACEC Honor Award for the South Columbus Water Resources Facility (SCWRF) Headworks Improvements project for Columbus Water Works. The award was presented at the 2018 ACEC Georgia Engineering Excellence Awards held in Atlanta.

Improvements to the City’s only wastewater treatment facility were intended to keep operations up-to-date and compliant with new regulatory requirements. The project took a different direction than first anticipated when severe storms and flooding in December 2015 and January 2016 caused significant damage to the 52-year old facility. Barge Design Solutions immediately responded to the client’s change in situation by moving the already fast-track project to an emergency repair project. Barge Design Solutions provided the client preliminary engineering, detailed design, permitting, advertisement and bidding, and construction phase services for what quickly became a different project.
