St. Johns County replaced 10,000 water meters ranging from 1/2" to 12" pipe diameter. Constantine provided the engineering design and construction services for design and construction of water pipelines and bypasses for the large meters. The contract for this work was awarded to Sensus USA Inc. Under this Contract, Sensus USA Inc. only provided the meters and the construction of the pipelines, bypasses, and meter installation for all the large meters were provided by Constantine. This work included design and construction pipelines associated with the water meters ranging in size from 2" to 12".
The scope of the design services included developing plans for the pipelines within the County right of way with a view to minimizing the downtimes for the impacted homes. Once the plans were approved by the County managers, Constantine constructed these improvements as a sub-consultant to Sensus USA Inc. While this project was primarily anticipated to be for meter replacement, significant pipeline design and design-build work was required because of the poor condition of the infrastructure in the area.
