ON-LINE PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR WATER AND WASTEWATER DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
Abstract:Project management is evolving through the use of secure on-line websites. Examples of secure websites at two large facilities are provided. The first example presents a third-party project specific website used during construction of a new 20 million gallon per day (mgd) wastewater treatment facility. The website proved effective in facilitating communications between the engineer, contractor, owner, and public. The second example presents an in-house project specific website used during planning and initial design of an upgrade to a large (288 mgd) water treatment plant. This website was used for improving communications between the Owner, Engineers, and Stakeholders. In addition, a secure web-based application was developed to access as-built information. The application allowed engineers and Owner personnel access to over 1,800 plant drawings through a graphical user interface.
