Work included several tank ring beams, almost one mile of precast spill containment walls, over 500 driven steel piles, three building foundations with pre-fabricated steel floor trenches cast into the concrete floor slabs and large equipment bases throughout the site.

During the winter months, Bird worked within large heated enclosures to expedite the project. Bird managed workers and equipment within a single 130 x 360 x 55 foot enclosure. In order to retain the heat, there was only one point of entrance. At peak times, over 60 workers were within these enclosures working with 60-ton cranes, 30-ton rock trucks and excavators, and a 130-foot concrete pump.

Reflecting Bird’s commitment to safety, this project was delivered without a single loss time injury or medical aid occurrence.
