Location: Bellingham, WA
Owner: City of Bellingham
Each winter, the City of Bellingham dedicates $2 million to design and construct several miles of sewer pipe replacement. Using the City of Bellingham’s asset management software, the pipes were identified as deficient and in need of replacement. OCI was responsible for reviewing CCTV videos and inspection reports, and visiting each of the 20 sites to identify potential constructability issues (i.e., permitting, accessibility, conflicts with existing infrastructure, etc.).
OCI used this information to prepare documentation with the recommended repair or construction method, bid plan sheets, and estimates detailing the type of replacement and site restoration required for each site.
