Atlas Design served as the City of Austin Project Manager on the $7M project to design and install approximately 5,000 LF of 36″ diameter water transmission main. In addition to traditional open cut ductile iron pipe installation, the project included unique design and construction challenges related to the use of welded steel pipe and tunneling required beneath Slaughter and Onion Creeks in south Austin. In addition, extensive easement negotiations and acquisitions were required in order to gain temporary workspace required for the project.
Mr. Thompson was responsible for all City of Austin management processes related to the projects. Typical tasks included negotiation of consultant scope/cost for rotation list assignments, review of consultant and contractor pay applications, and obtaining approval for project activities through city of Austin boards and commissions and city council.
