SAK Construction, LLC Wins $18.8 Million
Wastewater Pipeline Rehab Contract from City of Baltimore Md.
BALTIMORE, MD – The City of Baltimore, Md. has awarded SAK Construction, LLC (SAK) an $18.8 million contract to install more than 58,000 feet of small-, medium- and large-diameter cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) in residential neighborhoods in the Union Square area of Baltimore City. One of the fastest-growing pipeline rehabilitation and tunneling contractors in the U.S., SAK’s Atlantic Division office in Arbutus, Md. will oversee the project.
According to Bob Stier, Atlantic Division general manager, extensive pre-planning has begun on the project, which also requires SAK to rehabilitate manholes, renovate lateral lines and complete spot repairs. The assignment, part of a comprehensive plan the City of Baltimore is implementing to improve its wastewater system, is scheduled for completion in late 2015.
“This contract encompasses the full spectrum of CIPP installations,” Stier stated. “SAK’s experience in working with the full range of CIPP diameter sizes allows us to tackle an assignment of this complexity. Our seasoned team of professionals will enable us to plan, manage and make the key jobsite decisions that will keep the project moving forward efficiently to ensure a successful project for the city.”
The assignment requires SAK to install more than 50,000 feet of CIPP less than 15 inches in diameter; more than 3,500 feet of pipe 18 to 33 inches in diameter; and 3,500 feet of 52-inch pipe.
A logistical plus is that SAK’s new 7.5-acre Atlantic Division office and campus is less than four miles from the jobsite.
Minority and women-owned subcontractors vetted by SAK will partner with it to execute over 30% of the project.
Founded in 2006, SAK makes its national headquarters in O’Fallon, Mo. and has active projects across the U.S. In addition to Baltimore, it operates regional headquarters in Sacramento, Calif. and Tampa, Fla.
SAK solves the challenge of maintaining and restoring aging water, sanitary, and oil and gas pipeline 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 meet the task of renewing, protecting and expanding their pipeline infrastructure.
