Case Study: A Construction Management Disaster

The C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir Tampa Bay Water Project

The C. W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir Project was a large, complicated project that involved construction of a fifteen billion gallon above ground earth reservoir.

The Owner retained an internationally renowned engineering firm to design the reservoir, a construction management firm to manage the bidding and construction, and a nationally recognized contractor to build the reservoir.

Less than one year after completion, the reservoir failed and ultimately was completely reconstructed and rebuilt. What happened, and why, and who was responsible?

Join us to find out the answers to these questions!
