Okaloosa County, FL—Constantine is very excited to announce that we have been awarded a contract with Okaloosa County Water & Sewer (OCWS) for General Engineering Services in Okaloosa County, Florida. The contract was executed on Friday, February 2, 2018, allowing us to continue to provide our standard, high-quality consulting engineering services to OCWS, a partner of Constantine Engineering’s professional and technical staff since 2003! Constantine has delivered cost-effective, state-of-the-art solutions for the utility’s needs and challenges, ultimately strengthening this progressive relationship over the course of 15 years! Constantine was the prime consultant for engineering services for the Arbennie Pritchett Water Reclamation Facility (APWRF) project; we also facilitated as program manager for the project’s current construction expansion. This project was deemed a national success, winning the 2011 Water/Wastewater National Merit Award from the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA); Constantine values this national recognition by providing our utmost care and dedication to all of our clients and projects. Constantine has provided services for an array of projects with OCWS and APWRF. Some of these relevant projects include: APWRF: • Established regional wastewater treatment while developing and negotiating several contracts with surrounding water and sewer utilities—City of Fort Walton Beach and Eglin Air Force Base • Designed and managed the construction of the 2.0-mgd filtration and chlorine disinfection system improvements to produce reclaimed water service within the contract budget and schedule. • Planned and oversaw the construction for two new pumping stations and force mains on Eglin AFB to collect and convey the wastewater flows from Eglin’s two main wastewater treatment facilities to the APWRF. OCWS: • Assisted with negotiation of a formal agreement to receive and treat wastewater flows from the City of Fort Walton Beach at the APWRF and to supply the City’s golf course with as much as 1.55 million-gallons-per-day (mgd) of public access reuse water. • Helped negotiate with the Niceville-Valparaiso-Okaloosa County (NVOC) Regional Utility System to allow OCWS to separate from this regional facility. • Developed and supervised the construction services for a new pumping station to convey OCWS’s wastewater flows from the NVOC WRF, and other portions of OCWS’s service area, to the APWRF. The recurring savings and additional revenues generated from these regionalization projects are estimated at more than $4 million annually, not including one-time connection or readiness-to-serve fees.
