Kruger to serve on WDBC Advisory Group
To help the Water Design-Build Council (WDBC) advance its mission of evolving best practices for successful water project delivery, Garver Water Implementation Leader Kyle Kruger, PE, will serve as vice chair for the organization’s Advisory Group. Kyle, based in Garver’s Fayetteville, Arkansas office, will serve as vice chair in 2020 and transition to the group’s chair in 2021.
As vice chair, Kruger will serve as a voice for the advisory group and help facilitate its involvement in WDBC initiatives. In addition to serving as the vice chair, he has joined the Technical Practices Committee, focusing this year on improving resources for Construction Management-at-Risk (CMAR) delivery, a method that promotes a collaborative working relationship between owner, designer, and construction manager throughout the life of the project.
“As consultants, keeping our clients’ water and wastewater systems as efficient as possible is only half the job,” Kruger said. “Matching them with the delivery method that best fits their project and seeing it successfully through construction is the other half and equally important. The WDBC is critical in promoting the importance of these collaborative methods, and I look forward to enhancing those efforts.”
While at Garver, Kruger has provided design and construction oversight for a variety of water and wastewater upgrades, while focusing on design implementation and increasing project delivery efficiency.
Currently, Kruger is part of Garver’s program management team for the Enid Kaw Lake Water Supply Program, which is being delivered via CMAR. The $315 million program will provide Enid, Oklahoma with a 50-year sustainable water supply, and includes design of a new intake, over 70 miles of raw water conveyance, a new surface water treatment plant, and other elements.
The WDBC is North America’s leading educational resource for best practices in water design-build delivery. The Advisory Group focuses on increasing the acceptance of collaborative project delivery methods, while also improving the education and resources associated with it.
