The McNeill Design/Build Approach
For over 40 years McNeill Water and Wastewater, Inc., has successfully delivered over 600 turnkey wastewater treatment solutions to government and private owners. In the mid-1980's we developed our unique Design/Build approach which starts with McNeill Water and Wastewater, Inc., performing a preliminary evaluation and feasibility study, at no cost to the owner.
When it is found to be politically acceptable and economically feasible, McNeill Water and Wastewater, Inc., will assemble the best-suited professionals to design, permit, construct and/or finance, and/or operate the proposed facilities.
The typical Design/Build Team includes one or more consulting engineering firms, McNeill Water and Wastewater, Inc., a general contractor experienced and qualified in Design/Build projects, and when necessary a Financing entity and a company to provide operations and management of the proposed facilities. This integrated turnkey approach provides clear communications, efficient project management and expedited project completion.
This Design/Build approach offers a "guaranteed up-front price." Just as important, it provides a sole responsibility for the project backed with 100% payment and performance bonds along with errors and omissions insurance covering the entire project.
The consulting engineers chosen for the Design/Build team will provide the overall project design and regulatory permitting. The wastewater treatment equipment will be as designed and manufactured by McNeill Water & Wastewater, Inc. All equipment shall have proven performance including process control, energy savings, low maintenance cost and expandability.
From site preparation to a finished facility our team of engineering and construction professionals can bring your project from the drawing board to reality while staying on-time and in budget.
Working with some of the nation's largest public works financing institutions, McNeill can help to arrange 100% financing for wastewater treatment projects with no out of pocket expenses by the owner. The Design/Build project can be financed using several different methods. One of the most unusual is for a private company to provide the financing, along with the operation of the utility for a fixed period of time, at the end of which the utility will be turned over to the owner.
McNeill Water and Wastewater, Inc., can arrange to provide complete operations and management of the facilities. The scope can be tailored to include as much or as little as the owner requires. The benefits to the owner are a fixed cost of operations, indemnification of liabilities and a highly qualified staff.
