When Andover officials realized the existing plant would not meet future needs or new effluent requirements, they decided the design-build method of project delivery would produce a new wastewater treatment plant in less than a year.

Burns & McDonnell incorporated ultraviolet disinfection into the design of the plant and provided for reclamation of effluent to be used in the irrigation of a local golf course.

The plant was completed six to seven months ahead of the owner's schedule at a cost savings of $2 million, and two years ahead of the traditional method of design and construction.
