Ferrovial scoops $46m in Texas water contracts

Ferrovial’s US construction subsidiary Webber has been awarded two water projects in Texas with a combined value of some $46m.

In the bigger of the two, worth $31.9m, the North Texas Municipal Water District and Garney Construction picked Webber for the construction of four packages at the Sister Grove Regional Water Resource Recovery Facility in McKinney.

The contract includes excavation, pipe installation and construction of a tertiary filter facility, allowing the facility to reach an average annual daily treatment capacity of 46 million gallons per day (MGD) in peak flow, with the possible attainment of 256 MGDs in the future.

The work, which is scheduled to begin in May, is expected to be completed by December 2023.

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Water System has selected Webber to complete the improvements and upgrades to its Leon Creek Water Recycling Center. The contract is valued at about $14m.
The scope of work includes the construction of a new electrical building at the plant headworks, replacement of the grit removal equipment, structural repair to the flow equalisation basins and demolition of the structures no longer in use. The project is scheduled to last about 18 months, with scheduled completion expected in November 2022.

Ferrovial’s Horizon 24 strategy aims to grow the US as one of its main markets.
