A recent highlight of Loveland’s work is the award-winning Claude “Bud” Lewis Carlsbad Desalination Plant. The project was recently named Desalination Plant of the Year for 2016 by Global Water Intelligence. Loveland was responsible for the project’s planning, permitting, preliminary design, and contract negotiation/execution, as well as the execution of its design-build phase, including drinking water permitting and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) permit compliance. Additionally, he was responsible for all technical elements of detailed design, construction management, commissioning and operations.
