Sunrise Reservoir No. 8a

This CM/GC project was fast tracked and within three weeks of pre-construction design, value engineering, and constructability reviews, the construction phase GMP agreement was finalized and approved at 75% design. The project involved a buried 4MG prestressed concrete reservoir located on Scouters Mountain. It entailed complex excavation, stock piling, and backfill including gravel surfacing, storm drainage, detention pond, and associated electrical work. Original design was an 18” concrete mat slab for soil stabilization, however, soon after the GMP, the Olympics in China caused exponential rising costs for rebar. Design team explored many alternatives and finally discovered geopiers would meet design and ultimately brought the project under the original GMP.
