Municipal - Hialeah Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant

The overall project includes the construction of a 10MGD Water Treatment Plant, expandable to 17 MGD. The plant is being designed, built and will be operated for 10 years by Hialeah LLP, a joint venture of AECOM and Inima USA.
Raw water for the plant will come from 14 deep wells in the vicinity of the project which will be pumped to the plant site, filtered through cartridge filters, pumped through the reverse osmosis treatment units, de-gasified, pumped to and from the storage tanks and then pumped back to the City's water supply.
MCM's portion of the contract will be approximately $8 million and consists primarily of shell and interior build out work in the main process building, generator building and fourteen (14) production wells. Tilt-Up Concrete Wall Panel Systems will make up the primary method of construction for these buildings, all of which will be capped off by a steel roof joist and standing seam metal roof and wall panel system. Other items of work include the installation of a two-story internal steel superstructure which will house the administrative offices, RO control room, Laboratory, utility, storage and maintenance facilities.
Overall the biggest challenge on this project as a trade contractor will be the successful coordination with all other major subcontractors to complete the treatment plant and production well buildings in one year.
