DPW: Emergency Pump Station Installation

SFDPW San Francisco Crime Lab - Hunters Point Naval Shipyard - San Francisco, CA 


Value at Award: $343,000 - Value at Completion: $363,000


Performed for the San Francisco Department of Public Works (DPW) Bureau of Engineering, this emergency-response project included the installation of a mission-critical pump station. Due to US Navy construction, the San Francisco Crime Lab was faced with disconnection of their facility’s existing sewer system. With 3-months to disconnect, Yerba Buena Engineering & Construction was retained as the prime contractor for design/build. The project encompassed design and construction of a 10,000-gallon lift station and force main to continue operation of the crime lab at the facility. The compressed timeline allowed six weeks for procurement, installation, and construction of a lift station, two pumps, a 10,000-gallon holding tank, pump house, as well as electrical controls and a flow-monitoring system. The installation of 5,000 feet of force main to the closest City-owned sewer facility was also required. An asphalt berm was created to protect the pipe, due to the force main placement on top of the road. The project was completed on time and within budget. Project Duration: 07/06-09/06.
