CMAR Delivery of Fremont Wastewater Treatment Facility Leads to $6M Savings and Accelerated Construction
Federal and state environmental protection agencies demanded quick change. The City of Fremont, Ohio, wanted to update services for residents but faced severely limited funding. To solve the dilemma, the city turned to the construction manager-at-risk (CMAR) delivery method, recently approved for Ohio public works projects, to upgrade and expand its wastewater treatment plant.
