CWI played a key role in the design-build team for the Brickell Sewer Interceptor Project, a critical infrastructure upgrade in downtown Miami. The project involved the construction of large-diameter gravity sewer pipes ranging from 30″ to 54″ in size, spanning several key streets:

  • SW 2 Avenue: SW 7 Street to SW 13 Street (Coral Way)
  • SW 8 Street: SW 2 Ave to SW 1 Avenue
  • SW 11 Street: SW 3 Avenue to SW 2 Avenue
  • Coral Way (SW 13 St.): SW 2 Avenue to Brickell Avenue

Project Goals

  • Construct new sewer interceptor pipes to improve wastewater management capacity in downtown Miami.
  • Minimize traffic disruptions and maintain pedestrian safety throughout construction.
  • Design and implement effective Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) plans.
  • Assist with utility coordination for the entire project.
  • Develop safe tunneling MOT specifically for the large-diameter pipes.

Project Outcome

  • Successful construction of new sewer interceptor pipes, achieving the project’s main goal.
  • Minimized traffic disruptions and maintained pedestrian safety throughout construction.
  • Effective collaboration with various stakeholders ensured smooth project execution.
  • Tunneling technique was successfully implemented to install the large-diameter pipes, showcasing the project’s ability to address complex challenges in an urban environment.
