Regis PMI South Roundtable (Virtual): Denver Water's Project Processes Unveiled
Topic: Denver Water's Project Management Processes
PDU Categories/Hours: Technical / 1.5 Hours
Synopsis of Session. Denver Water serves over 1.5 million customers in the Denver metro area, providing high quality drinking water for over 100 years. In recent years Denver Water has entered its largest capital improvement plan to date, including the redevelopment of a 35-acre Operations Complex, construction of a 75-Million Gallon Per Day state of the art Water Treatment Plant, and a 131-foot concrete dam raise, which will be the largest dam in Colorado. These large programs coupled with aging infrastructure and the need to deliver the right projects at the right time and for the right budget has put effective project management at the forefront to ensure successful project delivery and value for the ratepayers. Denver Water Project Managers are tasked with being the subject matter experts in their discipline as well as leading multi-discipline teams to execute the annual capital improvement plan. Denver Water Engineering relies on its Capital Project Procedures Manual, Capital Projects Construction Standards, Engineering Standards, and software tools to ensure efficient project delivery.
Mr. Ross will provide an overview of the Denver Water Engineering Project Delivery process. He will review the tools in place to facilitate stakeholder engagement, scope development, and project endorsement to ensure alignment throughout the organization. Mr. Ross will identify processes that have been successful for Denver Water and the challenges involved in executing the largest capital plan in Denver Water’s history while maintaining service to 1.5 million customers.
