Coastal Engineering Can Assist Property Owners
Town of Harwich is in the process of designing a municipal sewer system for East Harwich. According to the Town, the municipal sewer designs will be completed by January 2019, and construction of the sewers will begin in the spring of 2019, so if you prefer to be in control of where on your property your sewer connection will go in, it’s best to have your design ready prior to April 2019.
Coastal Engineering offers consulting and engineering design services to prepare a Sewer Connection Plan for property owners affected by this project, including:
- Data accumulation/assessment
- Optimization of sewer connection location
- Engineering design and plan preparation
- Competitive bid administration
- Construction contract administration
Proactive Design Might Save Money on Construction
By preparing a plan before the municipal sewer is designed and constructed, the owners will have the ability to dictate where the connection stub is installed, and thus potentially save money on construction costs. Coastal Engineering will optimize the piping route and tie-in elevation to avoid unnecessary disruption to landscape and hardscape and will consider construction labor and material costs as well.
Neighbor Groups Benefit from Economy of Scale
There's an economy of scale that can be achieved if contracting Coastal Engineering as a neighbor group (5 or more homes in close proximity) as opposed to an individual. This includes engineering design discount and better opportunity for construction schedule coordination. If proceeding as a neighbor group, data accumulation services must be performed at the same time. Services will begin when the minimum of participants have signed up. Date and time will be provided for the initial field inspection. Homeowners must provide access accordingly.
