  • PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS
  • Travis Pruitt & Associates provided engineering design and construction administration services for the renovation and reconstruction of the former O’Malley’s building located on the North Oconee River at Williams Street. R.W. Allen Company was the prime contractor for this fast track design-build project. The historic mill building was constructed in 1879. An addition to the building in the early 1900’s was built over the top of a 16-inch diameter cast iron sewer main. TPA coordinated CCTV inspection services to evaluate the condition of the existing line. Based on the age and condition of the line, TPA recommended replacement of the sewer main and developed concept alternates for realignment of the sewer main to not be under the building.

    Conflicts with other utilities, the extreme depth of cut, and anticipated costs for rock removal dictated that the sanitary sewer be replaced on the existing alignment. Working closely with Athens-Clarke County Public Utilities and the contractor and the structural engineers, TPA developed the best-fit alignment and profile for replacement of the sanitary sewer under the building, including the plan for bypass pumping. The sewer main was replaced using traditional dig up and replace methods. This project was completed in 2009.
