IDCS has long been a green designer. Historically, the best designs were inherently green from an efficiency and economic standpoint. IDCS’ core areas of Water and Wastewater Treatment are inherently green in design from the start. We have developed biogas treatment facilities, and used the gas to generate heat and electricity, also generators using turbine and reciprocating engines. Solar powered photovoltaic installations have been designed for grid connection in both rural and urban environments.
IDCS was a sub-consultant on the City of Evanston Water Utility electrical hazard assessment. The project included the assessment of the entire water treatment facility, and furnishing the required field markings (labels) for the electrical distribution equipment.
Intelligent Design & Construction Solutions, LLC was hired by the City of Evanston for the Evanston Water Utility SCADA Improvements Project.
Intelligent Design and Construction Solutions, LLC completed the design for the instrumentation and control of the revised disinfection systems at the Lemay Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The Jefferson Barracks Tunnel will be responsible for conveying sewage to the Lemay Water Treatment Plant (Lemay WTP) as well as storing potential combined sewer overflow (CSO) and storm sewer overflow (SSO) during a wet weather event.
IDCS provided design services for I&C and communications for Lemay Pump Station 1 switchgear and VFD replacement which included engineering evaluations, preparation of contract drawings and specifications.
IDCS was contracted to perform Electrical Engineering Construction Services during the construction portion of the JWPP/SWPP Emergency Paging System Upgrades Project.
IDCS was contracted to work on six operable IDOT bridges over the Des Plaines River in Joliet, IL. Each of the six bridges is subject to both automobile and pedestrian traffic, while the thoroughfare below is subject to varying levels of maritime traffic, both commercial and private in nature (e.g. freight barges and sailboats).
IDCS worked as a sub-consultant to SpecPro for power studies for an Air Force base located in Minot North Dakota. Utilizing SKM software IDCS completed a short circuit study which included over 300 bus points from the incoming service entrance to the panelboard distribution level.
Tyndall AFB Medical Center is a 50,000 square foot building contained over 70 distribution panels in various stages of life, as well as 30 transformers. The scope of this project was to update and eliminate panels and transformers where possible and create a new efficient electrical distribution system.
IDCS was retained by KJWW to provide the electrical design for the replacement of two electric chillers at the Cummins Life Science Center on the University of Chicago Campus. The work included new 4160V feeds, and starters for the 1,020-ton chillers.
IDCS was contracted to participate in the East Cooling Tower Replacement project at the Chicago O'Hare International Airport. The East Cooling Tower is responsible for providing cooling to the Terminal Building at O'Hare International Airport.
IDCS will be responsible for the preliminary and detailed design of certain components of the Des Plaines Inflow Tunnel.
IDCS completed the Electrical and Instrumentation design for a new wastewater treatment facility for the treatment of contaminated groundwater, as well as the associated new Administration and Maintenance Buildings.
IDCS was selected to participate as a sub-consultant to CH2M Hill for the Lemont Water Reclamation Plant Wet Weather Treatment Facility (WWTF) upgrades project. This is a multi-phased project which includes the installation of a 5MG wet weather reservoir for storage of the initial excess flow, and the installation of a wet weather treatment facility which provides primary treatment and disinfection for flows above treatment and storage capacity.
The Lemay Ash Pump Station pumps the runoff from ash drying lagoons back to the main Lemay Water Treatment Plant (WTP), preventing the runoff from flowing into the Mississippi River through Outfall 002.
IDCS was a sub-consultant to Black & Veatch for the Lemay Water Treatment Plant (WTP) Secondary Improvements Project. This project includes the design of process improvements to increase the secondary treatment capacity from 167MGD to 210MGD, in order to meet new consent decree requirements.
The Consent Decree requires increasing influent pumping capacity to the Lemay WWTP to 340mgd by December 31, 2015. The District's preferred alternative for providing additional pumping capacity is to design a second (redundant) force main from Lemay Pump Station No. 1 to the Lemay WWTP.
Lower Meramec WWTP is one of several MSD treatment facilities that have been modified to include disinfection. Lower Meramec's Disinfection included a chemical disinfection process and IDCS was the lead designer for the instrumentation and controls.
Intelligent Design and Construction Services, LLC worked with the Joint Venture Team of M&E/CDM to provide electrical support services for the design of the new Preliminary Tanks and all support facilities.
Intelligent Design and Construction Services, LLC was a subcontractor providing electrical, instrumentation and CAD services during construction.
