New Contracting Opportunities in Green Infrastructure Construction
As part of the Sewer System Improvement Program (SSIP), the SFPUC is building eight innovative green infrastructure projects throughout the City in the next few years. As the SFPUC upgrades its aging combined sewer system, the SFPUC will integrate a mix of green (landscape and streetscape projects to manage stormwater) and grey (pipes, pump stations and other facilities) infrastructure projects to improve its sewer system. This marks the beginning of many green and grey infrastructure projects that will be built over the next 20 years as part of the SSIP.
While these projects require new skills, they open the door to new opportunities for many contractors. The opportunities for green infrastructure work will increase because private developers are also required to incorporate green infrastructure into their projects.
Find out how your company can participate in upcoming green infrastructure projects including upcoming contracts with the City.
WHEN: May 20th and June 3rd, 2014
3:30 – 4:30 PM
WHERE: SFPUC Contractors Assistance Center
