Grand Award – Crawford, Murphy & Tilly, Inc., St. Louis

Firm Name: Crawford, Murphy & Tilly, Inc., St. Louis

Project: Liberty WWTP Design Build

Client: City of Liberty, Missouri

The Liberty Wastewater Treatment Plant design-build project was the first project of its kind in the State of Missouri, combining the benefits of design-build delivery with SRF low-interest loan financing. The design-build team worked closely with the City of Liberty to allow them to realize their vision of the new treatment facilities – the largest public works project in the City’s history. The Liberty project demonstrates how design-build can be implemented in a way that allows the Owner to maintain control over all aspects of their project when the design-build team elevates client satisfaction as the top priority. As lead designer of the design-build team, CMT needed agility to deliver on the fly and respond to major changes stemming from an unprecedented level of collaboration with the City, all while keeping pace with the aggressive project schedule.
