Putnam County Landfill Mining

Jones Edmunds provided landfill mining construction-phase services for a closed unlined Class I Landfill cell located at the Putnam County Central Landfill. The services provided include conducting a waste investigation; creating construction-level documents; and providing bid-level and contract administration services, geotechnical analysis and design, solid waste permitting, and resident observation services. To save the County money, Jones Edmunds coordinated closely with the County during landfill mining, allowing the County to provide full-time resident observation in-house with Jones Edmunds providing limited support as needed.

Alachua County CEI Services

Jones Edmunds completed the construction contract administration and full-time resident observations for two construction projects (designed by others) that were bid together as one construction package for Alachua County Public Works. The projects were funded through FDOT and FEMA HMGP and were needed repairs due to damages from Hurricane Irma. The projects were:

  1. Slope stabilization along NW 16th Avenue where the Hogtown Creek was undercutting the road in the middle of Gainesville. The project used gabion baskets to stabilize the slope up to the road and gabion mattresses in the creek bottom to slow erosion and prevent undercutting of the stabilized slope. NW 16th Avenue is an FDOT road, so this project was funded paid by FDOT.
  2. Box culvert bridge replacement on NE 21st Street just north of Gainesville. The hurricane completely destroyed this box culvert so the replacement was funded by FEMA HMGP. This phase included upsizing the box culvert to allow for drastically increased flow through compared to the destroyed bridge.

In addition to providing the County with construction contract administration and resident observation, we also provided Davis-Bacon compliance services as are required in any funding agreement that uses federal monies. The Davis-Bacon compliance services included on-site wage interviews, compiling and verifying for accuracy the contractors wage statements submitted weekly, keeping an on-site project file for review by funding agencies, and leading funding agency review site visits.

Resident Observation services provided by our subsidiary firm JEAces as a subconsultant.

Gainesville Regional Utilities Resident Observation Services

GRU’s wastewater infrastructure, like most systems of its age, has a considerable inflow and infiltration (I&I) problem. The older parts of GRU’s system consist mostly of clay and ductile iron pipe, and these older pipes have been identified as the main culprit with the infiltration problem. Jones Edmunds supported GRU to implement a program to rehabilitate the City’s older wastewater infrastructure. The project included initial video inspection of the antiquated pipes, cleaning the pipes through mechanical cutting or chemical injection, follow-up video inspection of the cleaned pipe and preparation for the lining procedure, lining the pipe using cured-in-place pipe lining technology, and final video inspection of the lined pipe and cutting the liner out at all connections to the newly lined pipe. The program has already helped to drastically decrease infiltration into the wastewater system. Initial flow measurements from a lift station – and comparing wastewater volumes from before the lining to volumes after the lining – show an almost 40-percent reduction in flow into the station. Due to these excellent initial results, GRU has expanded the program to include lining the lateral lines as well as implementing a manhole-lining program. Jones Edmunds provided construction administration and full-time construction QA oversight of the pipe rehabilitation program. We are also helping GRU by expanding their Cityworks program for our construction representatives to use in the field to issue work orders directly into their system when we observe issues from the video inspections. The Jones Edmunds team is able to provide all expert services – from our construction team leading the field work, to our wastewater engineers assisting with data evaluation, to our GIS technicians and programmers who are experts with asset management systems such as Cityworks – to help GRU implement an extremely effective program for reducing I&I into their wastewater system.

Citrus County SWRWRF Construction Services

Jones Edmunds provided services during construction for the construction of the new water reclamation facility in southwest Citrus County. The new facility includes an advanced wastewater treatment plant meeting a 5-5-3 effluent quality to replace the existing WWTF. The new 1.5-MGD AADF 4-stage BNR oxidation ditch system includes secondary clarifiers, disc filters, and chlorine disinfection. The effluent from this facility is currently going to high-rate rapid infiltration basins; however, we are currently designing the infrastructure—high service pump stations, ground storage tank, and pipeline—to provide reclaimed water to an existing 18-hole golf course. The facility construction project included full time resident observation, contract administration services and funding agency documentation support. The project was funded by SWFWMD (including Springs Funding) and an FDEP SRF loan. Read more about the design of this project.

Construction Administration

Jones Edmunds offers construction administration services so our clients get what was designed and what they are paying for when the construction project is awarded. We focus on a team-centric approach to construction administration, one in which the Owner, Engineer, and Contractor are all focused on the same goals. This team-centric approach greatly improves project communication, helping to establish and maintain project expectations, minimize issues that could result in claims, and mitigate risks that may arise during project construction. We offer:

  • Cost Estimating and Constructability Reviews
  • Bid-Phase Services
  • Construction Observation
  • Construction Administration
  • Grant Compliance Support
