McKissack & McKissack assisted DC Water in constructing a new facility to help lower biosolids quantities and provide renewable electricity.
The first project of its type in the U.S., a new biosolids plant helps reduce the amount of biosolids taken to landfills each year. The plant generates its own electricity from low gas British thermal units, lowering the carbon footprint of the entire facility. McKissack was responsible for architecture, site/civil, design, permitting, hydraulic engineering, preparation of project drawings and specifications, progress inspections, and constructability reviews. McKissack also performed construction phase services, including shop drawing, requests for Information and change order reviews.
