Metro Wastewater Upgrades

This project included a variety of facility upgrades across the campus, which serves 32 regional municipalities in the greater Denver Metro area. Work included the construction of two new ground-up buildings, two additions to the warehouse / maintenance shops, various renovations across the campus, and a new diesel fueling island. The new Operations Services and Control Building (OSCB) is a 23,000 SF, multi-story office and control center building for the campus. The new RR&R Biosolids & Fleet Services (RBFS) Building is a 30,000 SF facility that includes 10,000 SF of administration space and 20,000 SF of maintenance / shop space with an overhead crane, vehicle lifts, 12 maintenance bays, a welding shop, truck wash, and oil storage. Scope included extensive soil mitigation and decontamination earthwork due to a benzene plume from the neighboring Suncore Energy Plant. Two additions, totaling 16,000 SF, were added to the existing Warehouse / Maintenance Shop (WMS).

“JHL has been a great construction partner to Metro Water Recovery on our $43M support services facilities upgrade project. While this is JHL’s first project on our occupied wastewater campus, they have provided a first-class team of construction professionals that has done everything possible to understand all our project needs and the constraints of our active campus. JHL is serving us very well in pushing schedules harder than any of the other large contractors working at MWR, and creating accountability for the entire project team, without sacrificing their commitment to achieving our overall project vision and objectives.”
