|CONTRACT TYPE:||Stipulated Sum|
|Project SIZE:||9,000 cubic m. concrete|
Engaged early by Air Products for its new 153 million standard cubic feet per day hydrogen facility, Bird provided pre-construction services and completed all civil works including the installation of underground utilities and a large precast concrete sump. After the underground works were completed, Bird poured 23 large concrete foundations and numerous smaller concrete pads, the largest of which was 1,300 m3. The team also completed the earthworks and two ring roads for site access.
Working on an expedited civil schedule, the team poured approximately 9,000 m3 of concrete in six months during the winter. Bird’s expertise in civil construction allowed the team to offer value added options for construction, such as a precast sump and an alternate configuration that supported improvements to the schedule by reducing the depth of excavation and allowing site access earlier than the client anticipated.
Bird’s team was recognized by Air Products for its superior safety performance during the fiscal year of 2014 with a safety excellence award. Notably, Bird worked more than 100,000 hours on this project without a recordable incident. As a repeat client of Bird’s, we look forward to continuing our relationship with Air Products and being part of its future challenging projects.
