Project Description

Client: City of Richardson
Location: Centennial Tower & West Lookout Drive – Richardson, Texas
Year Completed: 2019
Value: $356,996.00

John Burns Construction Company of Texas was contracted with The City of Richardson to replace existing 24”, 20”, 18” & 16” Gate Valves at two separate locations: Centennial Tower & West Lookout Drive.

The Challenges

  • The West Lookout Drive location was adjacent to the University of Texas at Dallas and required strict coordination between the contractor, city and University.
  • The replacement valves at the West Lookout location had to be cut-in on the existing line safely and efficiently and within a 4-hour window to allow for water shut-down
  • Excavation performed at Centennial Water Tower faced the potential loss of two million gallons of water for the City of Richardson if a failure of our installation occurred. The project also encountered extreme head pressure and even more complicating construction.
