Armed Forces Reserve Center, Buckeye, AZ
Design Consultants:Architect/Engineer-Burns & McDonnell
The project site was remote and the closest utilities were over one mile away. The project team decided establishing a well was the best cost-effective method to bring potable water to the site. The team expedited their survey and Sundt worked with local well drillers to develop an accurate cost model. The well is not only important for the facility, but a key construction activity on the critical path because trucking water to the site was determined to be cost prohibitive.
