Download Case Study
The Client wanted to add an additional production line to include multiple tanks, exchangers, pumps and ancillary equipment requiring a new stand-alone two story process building (95’ by 80’). The client also needed to add a 500 sq. ft. addition to an existing bulk storage tank building to house pumps, piping and foundations for up to seven, 20,000-gallon storage tanks. The planned site for the new process building required the relocation of underground utilities for multiple electric lines, a fire water line, a potable water line, and a local stormwater drain line. In addition to the utility modifications, a 120’ truss enclosed pipe bridge was needed between the new production building and the bulk storage building addition.
Design challenges included the facility location in a flood zone, a predefined maximum allowable footprint, two-phase relief design, processing and transfer of high viscosity materials and during construction the identification of contaminated soils.
TAI delivered design, engineering and construction services to the client that included the following:
New Process Building:
Bulk Storage Building and Pipe Bridge
Pre-engineered building expansion
TAI supported this project by providing comprehensive project management, engineering, and design for the development of detailed design documents for three new buildings, with process equipment, supporting utilities, and maintenance activities to accommodate an expansion.
