Why Weifield?

Weifield Group won the business over eight other competitors. We offered the best price and a detailed scope of work.  Our project strategy included the use of second tier subcontractors for instrumentation configuration, lightning protection, communication, and data cabling.

Project Scope

The scope of this $2.1M project includes an administration building, explosion-proof headwork building, solids building, two clarifiers, two oxidation ditches, 750KW emergency generator, fire alarm system, lightning protection, tele/data system, electrical distribution and complete instrumentation system including radial loop infrastructure.

This project required extensive planning because of incomplete electrical documents and conflicting process/instrumentation drawings and specifications. Weifield Group thoroughly reviewed the documentation to produce a complete scope of work, ensure accurate procurement and layout, and interpret the intent of the facility controls correctly. We coordinated with the general contractor, instrumentation subcontractor, and engineer to provide the best final projduct without affecting the owner’s budget.

This project also had budget limitations was subject to a post-bid change in labor requirements. We contributed several value engineering options to offset the additive costs incurred.


Our safety manager will implement the project specific safety plan, which includes OSHA required documentation, daily safety training, hazard communication, weekly safety meetings, and pre-task safety.
