Ian Alarcon & David Stilborn - "Regina's Hauled Wastewater Station Project"  Strategic & Business Mgt: 0.65
Technical: 0.25
Leadership: 0.10
The City of Regina Hauled Wastewater Station (HWS) project is necessary to maintain septage receiving service for users within Regina and surrounding area.  The HWS is required because current hauled wastewater practices are not compatible with the upgraded Wastewater Treatment Plant.  This project has been delivered through a Design-Bid-Build delivery model and includes the City of Regina, Associated Engineering and Westridge Construction. The HWS construction is currently complete and operation is anticipated in summer of 2017.

From the owner’s perspective a large portion of the work for a project of this complexity was balanced in planning, executing, and closing out; this was owing to the dynamic nature and semi-agile project management approach used. The presentation will discuss the project trajectory, including background and focusing on critical areas for project success; Risk Management, Procurement Management, and Contract Management. Discussion will also include acquired lessons learned and some discussion on the construction phase.
