Design Build

We pride ourselves in working with our clients in developing solutions that work best for their specific situation

While designing your integrated system we focus on all aspects of the project through our first-hand experience as owner-operators ourselves. We can be a partner in the design process or handle all aspects. We are here to help you reimagine water.

NSU has designed and built water and renewable energy infrastructure systems ranging in size from small communities to municipalities. Systems are comprised of various wastewater reclamation and water reuse technologies. NSU’s design-build expertise offers our clients an efficient and cost-effective full service project approach allowing our in-house planning, engineering, and construction professionals to collaborate, develop, and build reliable infrastructure. This seamless process provides our client with access to a single service provider accountable from project concept through completion. Commercial, municipal, industrial, utilities, and institutional clients enjoy reduced risk, a streamlined project delivery schedule, and life-cycle cost savings.

NSU combines the roles of designer, engineer, constructor, and operator of water, energy, and wastewater reclamation infrastructure components in a seamless multi-discipline Design-Build-Operate (DBO) service to our clients. Working in tandem with operations during project startup allows for a smooth transition through phases as well as successful operation. Beyond the significant reduction in capital costs, these alternative procurement techniques have demonstrated, there are other important benefits to clients over the more traditional design-bid-build approach.

  • A fully-integrated, single source for planning, permitting, design, construction, and operation of water/wastewater systems streamlines a clients need to arrange for, integrate, and manage the efforts of a wide variety of vendors.
  • Highly qualified engineers and designers receive real world input from our construction and operations staff during the design process, ensuring that efficient and economical considerations are factored into both construction and long-term operation.
  • Our construction division has full access to the process engineering and operations teams, allowing a critical give-and-take relationship essential during design and construction phases, thus shortening the overall project schedule.

NSU’s Design, Build and Operations experience encompasses water systems, water reclamation systems, water reuse supply systems, and heat recovery systems. Participation from these teams during all phases of a project ensure our clients a cost-effective, timely and quality DBO deliverable.
