Energy Performance Contract

The Mundelein WWTP Performance Project was an innovative private–public partnership focusing on planning, delivering, and guaranteeing cost reductions for both the water distribution system and the WWTP via reduced energy consumption and streamlined operations.

Through use of a performance contract, the Village was able to develop advanced solutions for reducing operating costs at its water and wastewater utilities. Baxter & Woodman produced construction documents, and also performed construction and start-up services.

The performance contracting process used ensured flexibility in selecting the best value with a track record of performance (not low bid), guaranteed results, single-source project implementation and management, and long-term project monitoring.
