Louisville MSD envisions a comprehensive Biosolids Processing Solution (BPS) at its Morris Forman facility for 130 ton/day (average) of biosolids. To MSD a comprehensive solution reduces the amount of biosolids for disposal, improves quality and moves towards holistic environmental management including renewable energy production. MSD enjoy many significant advantages including highly experienced operations and maintenance staff, a knowledgeable Owner's Advisor, a strong disadvantaged business community, commitment from executive leadership and a $97M WIFIA grant. However the ever changing landscape offered challenges to MSD as well including the global pandemic, rapidly escalating costs, emergency conditions to overcome challenges with existing biosolids processing equipment, a very tight site with no room for expansion and a fixed timeline for project completion. MSD has used the progressive design build delivery mechanism to engage a team to plot a path to the optimized comprehensive sustainable outcome. This presentation showcases MSD harnessing its staff, its advisors, the DB team, disadvantaged businesses, vendors and trade partners into a cohesive effective team. It covers 3D collaboration tools, coordination with ongoing projects, high value DBE engagement, routine value engineering solutions saving $40M+ from the project budget, and how planning for operations and financial return from the project was planned.
