Granite Construction unit wins sewer renewal contracts in Chicago

WCN Editorial Team 15 Jun 2016 NORTH AMERICA ENERGY & UTILITIES

Granite Construction subsidiary Kenny Construction has won four sewer renewal contracts worth $119M from the City of Chicago.


Under the contracts, Kenny will be responsible for the cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, and CIPP structure lining for two years with an option to extend by one year.

The contracts are part of a multi-year programme to replace Chicago’s aging brick sewers, financed by the City of Chicago and Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.

Granite Construction said that CIPP lining and structure lining extends the life of hydraulically adequate sewers at lower cost than excavating and replacing sewers in the streets, and is less disruptive to vehicular and pedestrian traffic during construction.

Construction is set to commence in the second quarter of 2016 and is expected to be complete in May 2019.
