DBIA Recognizes Steubenville Water Plant

MWH, a global provider of environmental engineering, construction, and strategic consulting services, has won the Design-Build Institute of America’s (DBIA) 2008 Design-Build Award and the Distinguished Design-Build Award for its Steubenville Water Treatment Plant in Steubenville, Ohio, according to a Dec. 10 press release.

The competition highlights successful design-build projects in the Ohio Valley across all sectors. This award is presented to the top design-build project in the tri-state area of Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia.

Bruce Williams, Steubenville’s city manager, summarized the project: "MWH did not exceed the cost and has actually delivered a higher quality of water than their contract required ... Our water customers, of course, have become the beneficiaries of the most modern, technically advanced water treatment plant in the state of Ohio."

DBIA presented the regional award in October.
