Job description

For the city of Multan, Punjab GKW will shortly be carrying out a feasibility study (FS) for sewerage and wastewater treatment. We will consider and evaluate open cut and trenchless for the trunk (and possibly other sewers) and if appropriate a combination of the two methods.
Following agreement on the optimum method we will carry out detailed design or design for a design build or similar contract.
The maximum diameter of sewer would be of the order of 3.5 m.
In the FS we require a trenchless technology expert for a period of approx. 1 month for tasks including selection of trenchless method, optimum depth(s) from ground conditions perspective, location of shafts, shaft spacing, cost estimate for different feasible options which may include use of different feasible options, etc.
Input after FS would depend upon the selected method. We currently estimate an input of 4-5 person months (ca. 50:50 home-based/field) between 02/2024 and 12/2024.
For more details we suggest that we have a discussion during this we can explain more about what information is available.
