Ferrovial Secures Texas Waterworks Contracts
Ferrovial, via its US construction subsidiary Webber, has been awarded two water projects in Texas. The contracts amount to about USD 46 million. The North Texas Municipal Water District and Garney Construction have selected Webber for the construction of four project packages at the Sister Grove Regional Water Resource Recovery Facility in McKinney in Texas. The total value of the work packages is estimated to be USD 31.9 million. The contract includes excavation, piping install and construction of tertiary filter facility, as well as the installation of various types of pipelines.
The facility will reach an average annual daily treatment capacity of 46 million gallons per day in peak flow, with the possibility to be extended up to 256 MGDs in the future. The work, which is scheduled to begin in May, is expected to be completed by December 2023.
Meanwhile, the San Antonio Water System has selected Webber, to complete the improvements and upgrades to its Leon Creek Water Recycling Center. The contract is valued at about $14 million.
The scope of work includes the construction of new electrical building at the plant headworks, replacement of the grit removal equipment, structural repair to the flow equalization basins and demolition of the structures no longer in use, among other tasks. The project is scheduled to last about 18 months, with scheduled completion expected in November 2022.
With these two new contracts, Ferrovial keeps progressing in its strategy Horizon 24, which continues to grow the United States as one of its main markets. It also consolidates its commitment to sustainable infrastructures that have a positive impact on the environment and communities, such as water treatment plants. Ferrovial Construction has been serving this market for 15 years and has built vital infrastructure, including LBJ Expressway in Dallas and segments of the SH 99 Grand Parkway in Houston.
