Woodland Heights Storm Sewer Improvements, Houston, TX

Woodland Heights Storm Sewer Improvements, Houston, TX
Client: City of Houston
Completion Date: 2008
Project Cost: $10 million

Project Scope of Services: This project consisted of constructing a storm sewer system and a new outfall to White Oak Bayou to reduce flooding in an area bounded by E. 11th Street, White Oak Bayou, IH 45 North, and Studewood Street.

IDCUS provided full construction engineering & inspection services through a Project Manager and Construction Management staff to insure the project was built as per City of Houston standards and design specifications. Improvements included storm sewer ranging in size from 10’ x 10’ boxes to 30” diameter pipes, 12’ x 12’ x 12’ cast-in-place junction box, and 10’ x 10’ outfall into White Oak Bayou. The large size of storm sewer caused most of the neighborhood streets to be reconstructed. Utilities were adjusted and streets paved with concrete.

IDCUS services included preparing daily inspection reports, monthly pay estimates, processing RFIs and shop drawings, coordination of materials testing, and conducting monthly progress meetings. IDC and city staff met with local community organizations on a regular basis to keep the citizens informed. The project was finished on time and within budget.
