The Schwarzach joint water authority has been supplying member communities with drinking water for nearly 60 years. In 2014 we investigated the capacity of the water supply equipment’s to ensure a high-quality, long-term water supply in the future. Subsequent to a general assessment, the plant and equipment, including piping, will require comprehensive refurbishment and renewal over the next 20 years. The project has been divided into several investment and action packages; the first action package has an investment of around € 13.2 million and entails refurbishing two water reservoirs and two water treatment plants, as well as laying pipelines in several construction phases, and is due for completion in 2022.
We are supporting the investment project from planning to completion, ensuring that the actual values of the project over a period of 6 years do not exceed the target amounts, with deadlines, budgets and performance targets met at all times by everyone involved in the project. We continuously review project progress in terms of quality and quantity. We work together with our customers on any adjustments that may be required, and schedules and project manuals ensure successful implementation throughout the project.
As a project controller, we see ourselves as a partner to the customer. We do not manage the project, but design it.
We clarified the conditions facing the project and reviewed eligibility, award procedures and financing options as part of the preparatory phase, with the resulting investment plan and timeline serving as a basis for financing the project. Refurbishing the drinking water network will be financed by charges and surcharges, so we provide public relations assistance for our customer through activities such as attending public information meetings.
