YEAR: 2013 LOCATION: Carlsbad, CA PROJECT VALUE: $900M OWNER: Poseidon Water ENGINEER: Arcadis CONTRACTOR: Kiewit/JF Shea JV
Carlsbad Desalination Plant
The Carlsbad Desalination Plant is the largest desalination plant in the Western Hemisphere. SAC was contracted to provide design, engineering and fabrication for all process pipe support systems, plant wide. This project was unique in that SAC was brought in during the beginning of design-build process at a 30% level.
SAC worked closely with the entire project team, which included representatives of companies from Israel, Australia, and North America, in order to finalize piping layout and loadings. Additionally, SAC provided pipe stress analysis to validate pipe routing and loadings and limit stresses caused by thermal, seismic, and dynamic loadings. SAC’s work was integrated into the final AFC drawings, which indicated all processpipesupport locations and details, and SAC provided final fabrication and delivery of all process pipe support systems.
MWRD Northern Treatment Plant
MWRD’s Northern Treatment Plant is one of the largest design-build municipal water projects in the United States. The facility includes process buildings such as headworks, odor control, bioreactors, digesters, tertiary treatment, chemical treatment, cogeneration, pump stations and ancillary support facilities. SAC’s provided the design, engineering, fabrication and delivery of all process pipe support systems as well as miscellaneous piping components.
YEAR: 2013 LOCATION: Brighton, CO PROJECT VALUE: $415M OWNER: Metropolitan Water Reclamation District ENGINEER: Carollo CONTRACTOR: Garney Construction

The EchoWater Project will take years to construct, test, and commission. While the upgrade is being built, ongoing operations at the wastewater treatment plant must continue uninterrupted, which is no small task. With an estimated cost of between $1.5 and $2.1 billion, the EchoWater Project is one of the largest public works projects in Sacramento’s history. It includes 12 main construction projects and, at its peak, will bring an additional 600 construction workers on site daily, with approximately $1 million per day in construction expenditures.
The BNR phase of the of the project consists of the construction of new facilities including a primary effluent pumping station, biological nutrient removal facility and blower building, and Area control center. These facilities will eliminate nearly all of the ammonia and most nitrate from the treated effluent. SAC provided the design, engineering, fabrication and delivery of all process pipe support systems for this phase and provided value engineering for our client on several other components of the project.
SAC impressed me
SAC impressed me with their preparedness at pre-construction meetings and continues with regular check-ins to make sure everything is on track. Their engineering team and process, along with quality control stand above.
Helped us tremendously
I would recommend SAC to others because of how well they worked with us on change orders and getting materials to the site as quickly as they could. We threw things at them from left field all the time and constantly changed the order in which we wanted things received, they took it all in stride and helped us tremendously.
A huge advantage
SAC’s combination of engineering, design of piping and supports is a huge advantage to the contractor on site. It allows for a lot of value engineering thus saving a lot of money.
