SAK begins $17.3m pipeline rehabilitation contract
BALTIMORE, MD — SAK Construction, LLC, (SAK) has begun work on a new $17.3 million contract to install 115,000 linear feet of 8-inch to 24-inch cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) in a dozen residential neighborhoods in the southwestern section of the City of Baltimore. The Atlantic Division office of SAK, one of the fastest-growing pipeline rehabilitation and tunneling contractors in the U.S., is located in Arbutus, MD, and will oversee the project.
According to Bob Stier, Atlantic Division general manager, the project also requires SAK to rehabilitate 529 manholes and repair more than 2,100 house connections, using excavation, grouting and CIPP methods. The assignment, part of a comprehensive plan the City of Baltimore is implementing to improve its wastewater system, is scheduled for completion in April 2016.
SAK is concurrently working on a separate $18.8 million wastewater rehabilitation project in the Union Square area of Baltimore, scheduled for completion in November 2015.
“SAK’s extensive experience in working with CIPP in residential areas – plus our ability to bring in additional seasoned crews, as needed, from our other locations – allows us to successfully tackle assignments of this complexity and size, and ensure on-time, seamless project completion for the city,” Stier said.
A logistical plus is that SAK’s 7.5-acre Atlantic Division office and campus is only one mile from the jobsite.
Minority and women-owned subcontractors vetted by SAK will partner with it to execute over 30% of the project.
