The Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) selected the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant as the Project of the Year at its National Conference & Trade Show in Las Vegas on Oct. 16.

The Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment plant in Brooklyn, New York, serves more than 1 million people and is the largest wastewater treatment plant owned and operated by New York City’s Department of Environmental Protection. As a joint venture, Gannett Fleming, Michael Baker International, and APTIM worked together on this ten-year, $1.1 billion construction project.

Gannett Fleming provided comprehensive construction management services for four multi-prime projects, which included:

  • Upgrading the central residuals building
  • Modifying the main building’s northwest wing
  • Improving the Newtown Creek sludge barging facilities
  • Reconstructing the Kingsland Avenue, South Battery, and South Control buildings.

Thanks to continuous plant operations, the project came in $71.7 million under budget and ahead of schedule.

This project also earned a national American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Honor Award, an ACEC New York Diamond Award in the waste and stormwater category, an Engineering News-Record New York’s Best Project Award in the Water/Environment category, and the CMAA Metro New York/New Jersey Chapter 2018 Project of the Year Award.
