SAK Construction begins new $17.3M wastewater pipeline rehabilitation for Baltimore (Water World)

BALTIMORE, MD, Feb. 2, 2015 – SAK Construction, LLC, (SAK), a provider of trenchless technology and tunneling solutions, has begun work on a new $17.3-million contract to install 115,000 linear feet of 8-inch to 24-inch cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) in 12 residential neighborhoods throughout the southwestern section of the city of Baltimore, Md.

According to Bob Stier, general manager of Atlantic Division, the company overseeing the project, Baltimore’s new installment also requires SAK to rehabilitate 529 manholes and repair more than 2,100 house connections, using excavation, grouting and CIPP methods. The assignment, part of a comprehensive plan to improve the city’s wastewater system, is scheduled for completion in April 2016.

A logistical benefit is that SAK’s 7.5-acre Atlantic Division office and campus is only one mile from the jobsite. Minority and women-owned subcontractors vetted by SAK will partner with it to execute over 30 percent of the project.

SAK is concurrently working on a separate $18.8-million wastewater rehabilitation project in the Union Square area of Baltimore, scheduled for completion in November 2015 (see “Baltimore grants $18.8M contract for wastewater pipeline rehab project”).

Based in O’Fallon, Mo., and with additional regional offices in Sacramento, Calif., and Nashville, Tenn., SAK is active across the U.S. The company solves the challenge of maintaining and restoring aging water and sanitary infrastructure for the municipal, energy and industrial markets. With industry leading experience and a commitment to service excellence, SAK is a trusted partner helping customers worldwide renew, protect and expand their pipeline infrastructure.
