Prime Contractor for a Sewer Pump Station upgrade for the City of City of Chattanooga, TN.  The project consist of constructing a new 48’ deep cast in place wet well containing four submersible chopper pumps, construction of new electrical building, new piping and valves for the new pump station, and 520 LF of new 30” ductile iron force main which includes a 200 LF creek crossing through the active Chickamauga Creek.  This project presents many challenges for construction which include constructing the new pump between two existing active pump stations which much remain active until the new pump station goes on line.
