Lake Water Treatment Plant Phase III Expansion
The Lake Water Treatment Plant Phase III Expansion (Project) in Williamson County, Texas, consisted of expanding the existing plant from 19.9 MGD capacity to 28.6 MGD. The Contractor was required to achieve substantial completion within 545 calendar days from Notice To Proceed (NTP). However, numerous delays occurred during the Project, and the substantial completion date was not achieved. A dispute occurred between the Contractor and its Subcontractor because of issues encountered during the Project. Spire was retained to provide opinions regarding the issues related to the delays, disruptions, and damages that occurred during the Project in Phase 1, to provide supplemental opinions regarding damages incurred during the Project based on additional information provided and analysis performed in Phase 2, to prepare for and perform expert deposition in Phase 3; and in Phase 4, Spire’s scope of work included preparing presentation, attending depositions, developing rebuttal of opposing expert reports and performing expert testimony.
