While soccer fans cheered the new FC Cincinnati Stadium, it meant Greater Cincinnati Water Works would need to replace and relocate water main that would be displaced by the development. Gresham Smith was selected to design the routing and replacement project, which was exceptionally complex due to connections to very old large diameter water mains and routing to through a highly urbanized, historic downtown area. An aggressive 3½ month project design schedule, including obtaining all regulatory approvals and permits, was necessary to allow the stadium to open in time for the soccer season. By sweating the details, organizing stakeholders, executing a strong communication plan and collaborating with partners we completed the project on time.
