Peoria Water, Wastewater Treatment and Offsite Facilities Job Order Contract

  • July, 2013
  • City of Peoria

Felix was selected as the prime Job Order Contractor for this 1 year Water/Wastewater JOC contract by the City of Peoria and had the contract extended two times for an additional 2 years each due to excellent performance.

Problem Statement

The City of Peoria, AZ has a need for constant improvements, upgrades and rehabilitation to their water and wastewater facilities. Job Order Contracting offers the City the ability to “pre-qualify” a Prime Contractor and negotiate labor and equipment pricing up front. Then, when a need arises within their system, they can issue a Job Order to the contractor and have a high quality and cost effective solution in less time and often for less money than traditional Design-Bid-Build (AKA Low-Bid) methods.
