Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today that the Yellow River Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) located in Gwinnett County, Ga. received the 2012 Best Civil Works/Infrastructure Award from Engineering News-Record (ENR).
Jacobs worked on the project as part of an integrated team with Gwinnett County, providing engineering and construction management for the 22 million gallons per day water reclamation facility. The new plant replaced five other wastewater treatment plants and was the first in the county to use advanced membrane bio-reactor technology.
The $245 million project was completed 12 months ahead of schedule for $5 million less than the projected investment. Additionally, the plant operations center achieved LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building Council.
In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Kevin McMahon stated, “We are delighted to share the success of this project with Gwinnett County. The Yellow River WRF is a great example of how an integrated team can work seamlessly together to deliver an award-winning project.”Jacobs is one of the world’s largest and most diverse providers of technical, professional, and construction services.
