This year, we are proud to announce that three (3) of our partner communities have received a State Finalist Award. Commonwealth Engineers is fortunate to continue partnering with so many communities that strive daily to demonstrate exceptional degrees of innovation, complexity, achievement, and value through the design and implementation of their respective public works projects

City of Richmond – NW 13th St. Interceptor Replacement Project

The North West 13th Street Interceptor Replacement Project involved upsizing 3.5 miles of aged gravity sanitary interceptor with new 24-36 inch diameter pipe using a combination of open-cut and trenchless construction. The project is an important component of the City’s goal to reduce overflows on the west side of Richmond, Indiana

City of Crown Point – Water Utility Improvements Division C Phase I

The City’s elevated tanks and primary water storage reservoir required rehabilitation and removal from service. Only one tank could be out of service at a time, and the reservoir could not be taken offline. A 3-million-gallon redundant tank was constructed to allow this necessary work to be performed.

Town of Eaton – Emergency Water Line Relocations

Emergency water main repairs were necessary due to a wastewater project in the Town causing damage to the existing Asbestos Cement Water Pipe. These pipes were unable to be located by traditional methods and were highly sensitive to ground movement and excavations caused by the concurrent wastewater project
