Black & Veatch – Fixed-Price Design-Build
The $8.1 million fixed-price design-build contract was sole-sourced to Black & Veatch, which has a long history of assisting BioKyowa with wastewater treatment at its Cape Girardeau facility. While working on solutions to BioKyowa’s regulatory challenge, B&V identified the potential to fast-track an alternative, state-of-the-art process using membrane bioreactors (MBRs) to remove bacteria, significantly improving the quality of wastewater effluent and meeting the tight permit compliance schedule.
