Kitchener Wastewater Treatment Plant
Location: Kitchener, ON
The Kitchener Wastewater Treatment Plant (Kitchener WWTP) project was comprised of a new Headworks building and upgrades to the Secondary Treatment area of the existing facility. The scope of work required for this project included the installation of all associated electrical, HVAC, plumbing, effluent water, potable water, hot water, gas detection and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems. Work also performed on the project included the demolition of the existing Headworks Building and Plant II pumping station and the associated equipment piping and services. There was extensive structural cast-in-place concrete work involved and over 30,000m3 of concrete was poured.
Construction challenges included extensive dewatering, working within an operating facility, and maintaining the existing process during multiple shut-downs and isolations. The project is also staged due to the requirement of C4 (tertiary building under construction) to allow the demolition and reconstruction of RAS Station 2.
