Planning and Detailed Engineering Design for the MES-MWTS Water Facilities
Sta. Rosa, Laguna
M.E. Sicat Construction, Inc. (MES) engaged AMH to provide professional services in relation to their design build projects of water and wastewater-related facilities under the auspices of Manila Water Total Solutions. The scope of AMH included the conduct of geotechnical engineering studies of the project sites in Laguna, including the drilling of boreholes at the necessary depths and the assessment of bearing capacities, modeling of settlement and liquefaction, as applicable. The susceptibility of the soil to different geohazards were also considered and the corresponding recommendations were made. AMH likewise provided detailed engineering designs of reservoirs and pump rooms, effluent tanks and anaerobic baffled reactors for wastewater treatment. Structural modeling was done in STAAD.Pro, using guidelines for liquid containing structures as prescribed in ACI-350.
