“The Rialto WWTP was in critical need of upgrades and plant expansion as much of the existing facilities have exceeded their useful life. Several project upgrade and expansion plans were developed that grossly exceeded the available budget with cost estimates in the $35- $40M range. Subsequently, The AECOM-Lyles team was selected and collaboratively provided a cost effective $25M innovative solution that is currently being delivered through the Progressive Design Build contractual method. The project is nearing completion and Veolia appreciates the project first mentality by the PDB team which resulted in significant trust and project challenges being solved quickly and fairly.”
