The goal of this contract is to provide Project Management and Technical Assistance Services for the Study, Design, Construction, Purchase of Equipment and Commissioning services for the expansion and improvement of Panama’s Aqueduct and Sewer Systems.

The potable water system of Panama City has two main sources of water supply: water purchased from the Panama Canal Authority and the Federico Guardia Conte Water Treatment Plant. In addition, Panama City has several conduction lines. The conduction line system is inadequate due to the characteristics of the land, the increase in urban population and the associated intermittent water demands.

The National Council for Sustainable Development established the Panama City Aqueduct and Sewer Systems expansion and improvement project consisting of three main groupings of work:

  • Group 1 West Line Phase 1 Construction Project; Phase 2 Studies, Design and Construction Project;
  • Group 2 Studies, Design and Construction Projects María Henríquez-Gonzalillo Line, East Line II and associated project for San Miguelito and Pedregal
  • Group 3 Studies, Design and Construction Projects for East Coast -Radial city line.

The project included the inspection and supervision of construction for tanks, pump stations and DI pipe with diameters ranging from 4” to 60”. Overall, 98 km of DI pipes were installed with interconnections to existing lines throughout Panama City. Also included is the design and construction of several potable water storage tanks. The largest tank with distribution lines has a capacity of 4 million gallons.

The services provided by CSA Group as part of the Consortium include: revision of design and technical specifications; coordination between contractors and governmental entities; supervision of the contractors related to Environmental Safety; and responsibility for the inspection, control and supervision of tasks and activities performed by contractors on the construction sites. Other services include providing support and consultation services to the owner during bidding of the contract(s), acting as Owners Representative for review process of the selected technical proposals and technical specifications and providing project management services to plan, develop, coordinate, follow-up, inspect, control and supervise tasks and activities performed by the contractors.
