Crowder Construction Company is proud to announce that it has been selected for the Brown and Williams Water Treatment Plant Upgrade and Expansion – Contract II project. The $57 million-project, which was designed by Black & Veatch, was awarded to Crowder June 21, 2016 by the City of Durham. This project involves work at two water treatment plants in Durham, NC.
