The City of Waukesha selected raSmith as the construction engineering consultant for the installation of over 9,100 feet of sanitary interceptor sewer. Stretching from major intersections through residential areas and under the Fox River, this new pipeline is designed to allow the elimination of two pump stations and improve areas disturbed by open-cut activities and shafts. This challenging project requires sensitivity for the public’s health while working with a live sewer system. The City chose raSmith because of our team’s experience in tunneling and successful management of similar construction projects.
As part of our construction site representation and management services, raSmith is overseeing open-cut construction, tunneling through bedrock with depths reaching over 60 feet down and horizontal directional drilling (HDD) to install a dual-pipe siphon system under the Fox River. The project team is also installing 5,000 linear feet of 36-inch storm sewer. Additionally, raSmith is facilitating meetings and helping to coordinate each step of this complex project between key stakeholders including the City, residents, businesses and the contractor.
Other services we’re providing for this $18.8 million project include construction staking, administration and observation such as roadway subgrade evaluation, storm sewer systems, curb and gutter, sidewalk and pavement.
