Project Description:

The Sand Island Wastewater Treatment Plant is a primary treatment facility serving metropolitan Honolulu; it is the largest such facility in the State of Hawaii.  RMTC was contracted to provide Construction Management services for the $81-million Ultraviolet Disinfection Facility and Effluent Pump Station. RMTC’s services, which began in 2001, have included constructability review, partnering, construction support services, scheduling, cost control, quality control, documentation, testing and inspection, evaluating and regulating changes and claims, damages, program coordination and certification of payroll affidavits. RMTC services also included working with the owner’s project managers as well as designers and contractors.

As part of the full-service construction management for the UV and Disinfection and Effluent Pump Station project, RMTC was also tasked to monitor the schedule of numerous related construction projects in the Sand Island basin totaling ±$350 million. The scope of work for this Program Management function includes coordinating and tracking simultaneous construction projects in the Sand Island Basin and alerting the owner of any deviations in schedule.

The master schedule compiled by RMTC tracks the various projects.  RMTC also resolves any conflicts of work schedule between the projects and conducts coordination meetings with project representatives. Additional duties are monitoring projects for potential delays, claims or extra work items. Because these projects are part of an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) consent decree entered into with the City and County of Honolulu, RMTC prepares quarterly schedules for the City to submit to the EPA.
