DENVER,12 October, 2005 — CH2M HILL recently received its first project achievement award from the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA).

The award was presented during the Industry Recognition Dinner at CMAA's annual conference, held this year in Huntington Beach, California.

CH2M HILL's program management and construction management efforts on contracts 1 through 6 of the Alexandria Sanitation Authority (ASA) Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility Upgrade in Northern Virginia won in the category for Excellence in Program Management with Constructed Value Greater than $100 Million-Completed Program. The competition was stiff, with CH2M HILL's project selected from more than 70 entries.

The $275 million ASA program was divided into six contracts for new construction and upgrades of multiple treatment and processing facilities. More than 20 structures on this 22-acre site were involved in this rehabilitation and modernization project designed to enhance the quality of treated water discharged into the Potomac River.

The project presented a number of complexities, beginning with the site itself. All excavated soil was contaminated with total petroleum hydrocarbons and intermixed with solid waste, so it had to be handled specially. More than 8,600 100-ton and 50-ton steel H-piles had to be driven-and without damaging the existing 72-inch interceptor and underground tunnels.

CH2M HILL's services contributed to seamless construction from the design and award phase through completion. Scheduling was under additional pressure because of the owner's need to meet state-mandated deadlines for components of the project. Despite its great complexity, the project was completed 40 calendar days early.

During the CMAA conference, CH2M HILL also sponsored a reception for Certified Construction Managers and clients that drew approximately 200 attendees.

For the past two years, CH2M HILL has been ranked No. 1 by the Engineering News-Record for providing fee-based construction management and program management.
