For General Construction, that's not just an engineering principle, it's our business philosophy. Below you will find a listing of some selected projects. Use the menu to the left to view projects by the type of work.
General Construction installed new variable frequency AC drives, motors and a new wet dust collection system. We modified building structural steel to support additional loads from the new equipment. The majority of work was done during a 12 day outage, with shifts of over 100 craftsmen working around the clock.
All work on this project was done during an eighteen day shutdown. The scope of work included demolition of existing structures, piping, equipment bases and the salvage of equipment. General Construction direct hired and managed craft labor for the civil, structural, equipment setting and piping work.
This new bridge carries four lanes of traffic over the Cowlitz River and Burlington-Northern mainline railroad. The bridge serves as the main link between downtown Kelso and Longview. At 1,120 ft long, the bridge was constructed using reinforced earth techniques with precast panel facing. The span of the bridge over the river has six piers founded on three 10 ft diameter drilled shafts. The bridge deck and rail are cast-in-place concrete.
The new Benicia-Martinez Bridge is a four frame, 2,266 meter long by 25 meter wide cast-in-place, post tensioned, segmental concrete bridge spanning the Carquinez Strait. The superstructure is supported by seventeen pile-supported foundations, twelve of which are located in water. The bridge carries five lanes of northbound Interstate 680 traffic and has the potential for a future BART light rail lane.
For this project 244 steel pipe piles were driven through 122 holes cut in the existing causeway deck. The falsework and side forms were installed below the causeway for new concrete bent caps at each cluster of four piles. Six existing causeway expansion joints were demolished and rebuilt to allow for greater movement during a seismic event. A new pipe trestle was made of steel beams and 609 pony bents and pipe supports.
A new T-pier with 200 lin ft of fixed berthing and a 120 ft floating finger pier were built to support transient Navy vessels and small crafts. The facility also includes a floating boathouse, to provide covered moorage for the Admiral's barge, and three smaller slips. Mechanical and electrical utilities were provided for all new structures along with relocation and installation of existing jib cranes and other vessel service equipment. Demolition of two existing timber piers and the existing fixed boathouse were included as part of the project scope.
General Construction Company partnered with BERGER/ABAM for this Design/Build project. The contract required demolition of an existing 650 ft timber pier and construction of a new replacement concrete pier and concrete mooring floats. The construction included 16 in. diameter concrete piles, poured in place caps, precast deck panels, and crane beams. In addition to the new pier, a custom 25-ton capacity 'Marine Travelift' boat hoist was installed.
This contract is for the replacement of Pier 23 in Tacoma, WA, and includes the demolition of 600 feet of timber pier and replacement with a new concrete pier. The new pier will consist of precast concrete piles, cast-in-place pilecaps, and precast decking. This project also requires environmental remediation to remove in-water sediment and slag.
This project included demolition of the existing pier. A new carrier pier was founded on 24 in. octagonal concrete and 24 to 36 in. coated steel piles. Steam, water and other services were run in utilidors along the outboard pier edges. New systems for ships' sewage disposal were constructed.
