The shredder process line consisted of five major elements of equipment: infeed conveyor system, shredder machinery, ferrous metals separation equipment, non-ferrous materials separation equipment and debris separation machinery. All these elements were connected by a series of conveyors. Associated piping for water, pneumatics and hydraulics were also installed.
This project included removal of four existing batch-type homogenizing furnaces in scheduled phases. This was followed by the installation of a new precast 1,000 gallon underground cooling water return sump as well as an underground cooling water supply and drain piping. General Construction also built a new MCC foundations and installed billet conveyors, billet elevators, a walking beam cooler, gas piping and hydraulic/pneumatic systems.
Over a four year period, General Construction made improvements to upgrade and update cranes in this Renton factory. Over 100 crane rails were replaced and all crane rails were re-aligned. In the main assembly building, we removed, rebuilt and reinstalled crane bridges. Electrical systems were upgraded, including new safety interlocks and new bridge drives. All cranes serve active production areas so coordination and scheduling were critical to allow ongoing operations throughout this project.
This project included demolition and relocation of surplus tools and equipment, preparation of concrete floors, and removal of all mechanical piping and electrical branch circuits. Additionally, General Construction constructed multiple conference rooms, break areas and recycling centers. We installed 2,000 ft of new ductwork, 1,200 lin ft of copper piping, 232 dimmable Lutron light fixtures and power poles for 1,200 work stations.
This project upgraded the assembly facility's ability to withstand seismic forces. General Construction installed 2,000-tons of steel and 4,000 structural connections as high as 120 ft above ground. The entire project was accomplished with no interruption to production.
Due to deteriorating mechanical fittings in the heating system piping at an Everett assembly building, General Construction was given the task of refitting all the mechanical joints with new welded fittings. In order to complete this project within the small window of time available, the majority of the work was done over the 2006-2007 Holiday shutdown.
General Construction furnished and installed this system, which supplies hydraulics to airplanes during assembly. The primary components include a 1,500 gallon stainless steel storage tank and 6,600 feet of stainless steel pipe. The piping installation required more than 850 welded connections, many in difficult, awkward, and tight positions.
General Construction was given the opportunity to help modernize and make a airplane manufacturing facility in Everett more environmentally friendly by bringing more natural light into the building. This project included the installation of 25ft x 27ft skylights that are 14ft tall.
General Construction was responsible for installing eight new aircraft painting platforms (stacker cranes) fabricated by OIW. Scope of work included installation of approximately 3,500 lin ft of crane rail, six low bay and two high bay stacker cranes including bridges, trolleys, masts, and platforms. In addition to the structural components, GCC was also responsible for installation of all mechanical, power and controls wiring, as well as full functional test and commissioning of the cranes.
This project included installing a new 3,000 CFM air compressor with two new mist eliminator prefilters, installing a new refrigerated air dryer, and connecting the compressed air piping, cooling water piping, and circulating pumps. Also included were new electrical switchgear installation and power and control wiring.
