Council Awards Contract to Emery & Sons Construction Group, LLC for the Reservoir 18 and Pump Station Project
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | December 8, 2021
On December 7, 2021 Tigard City Council, acting as the Local Contract Review Board, awarded $2,153,678 to Emery & Sons Construction Group for construction of the Reservoir 18 and Pump Station Project.
“Tigard must plan and construct capital improvements to serve our growing community,” said Rob Murchison, Assistant Public Works Director. “This undertaking will add critical components to our complex water delivery system, which allows the city's professionals to deliver clean drinking water from the River Intake Facility located on the Clackamas River to the homes and businesses throughout the Tigard Water Service Area.”
This project will include design and construction of a new water reservoir, associated new waterlines, and replacement of a temporary pump station. This project supports the city’s goal to “fund the vision while maintaining core services” as it will ensure delivery of healthy, safe water to keep pace with the city’s growth, meet peak demand periods, and navigate emergencies and natural disasters.
The city plans to design and construct the new reservoir at one of two sites in western Tigard. The two sites being considered for construction are Sunrise Park, north of the intersection of SW 150th Avenue and SW Sunrise Lane, and the Cach Water Site, located on the west side of the 15100 block of SW Sunrise Lane. These sites are each currently owned by the city and are at elevations suitable for construction of a new reservoir.
This project will be designed and constructed in two phases using the progressive design-build delivery method: Phase 1: Preconstruction Phase and Phase 2: Construction Phase. This progressive design-build process allows the city and design-builder team to progress through final design and collaboratively agree on the guaranteed maximum price for Phase 2 construction services.
Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2022 and last through spring 2024.
Costs for this project are split between the Water Fund (52%) and Water System Development Charges Fund (48%).
