Roof Repair & Coating

In June, a customer was in need of a complete roof repair job. Our Field Coatings team cut out the blisters and repaired all leaking areas to ensure no water would get through. Afterwards, we applied a spray foam and elastomeric acrylic coating for the finishing touch. Our spray foam and elastomeric roof coating systems are proven to stop leaks, reduce building energy consumption, provide insulation, and improve structural integrity while costing less than a conventional roof replacement.

Aluminum Dock Walkway

Our engineering, custom fabrication, and field services teams worked together to design, build, and install a 50 foot all aluminum walkway for a dock extension. Now, the customer is able to move their dock 20 feet further out, so it can sit in a greater depth of water year around.

Exterior Metal Building Rehabilitation

Our Field Coatings Division performed an exterior metal building rehabilitation for a local power generating station. They battled the elements in order to power clean and degrease over 50k sq. ft. of exterior sheeting, replaced or overlaid several panels, then applied 4 to 7 mils of an acrylic exterior coating. This will allow the customer to have a clean and beautiful site as well as protect their assets for years to come.

Power Generation Trommel Screen

Our NIX Repairs & Maintenance Division designed a trommel screen to match an existing design. A 3/8″ flat plate was cut and rolled to diameter.  Two flanges were burnt out with the inside dimension to match the outside dimension of the rolled plate.  Our team then took the project to fit the rolled plate to the flanges and marked out the triangular cut-outs, which were then hand-cut by a plasma cutter. 

The wire mesh was cut and rolled to match the inside dimension of the trommel and installed.  After this, the pre-manufactured flighting was installed to finish out the trommel screen.  The advantage of this trommel versus the existing trommels, is the fact this one was 100% built out of stainless steel materials, which should last the customer a substantially longer amount of time.

Fertilizer Conveyor Platform Repairs

CHALLENGE

We were approached by a customer needing a fertilizer conveyor platform to be repaired. One of their requirements was to improve the safety of the platform.

SOLUTION

Our Repairs & Maintenance Division had our field crew inspect the conveyor platform. Our field team replaced ‘mild steel’ with stainless steel on the platform to create a safer work environment.  The fertilizer conveyor platform is approximately 35 feet in the air increasing the need for making the platform as safe as possible.

LST 325 – Structural Steel

Evansville is home to an important battleship from World War II, the LST 325, the last remaining fully functioning LST in the country. During June and July of 1944, the LST 325 made 44 trips between France and England carrying ammunition and supplies to the mainland while also carrying back the wounded.  The LST 325 also played a vital role during the D-Day landings.  During WWII, Evansville produced over 150 LST’s and became the largest inland facility that manufactured LSTs in the world.

The LST 325 finally made it’s big move up the Ohio River to it’s new home.  Part of the move was creating a new Visitor’s Center and enhancing the dock to accommodate the LST 325.  Our Structural Steel Division fabricated structural steel, joist, and deck for the Visitor’s Center while also fabricating ramps and reinforcement steel for the vehicle bridge.  We are proud to play a part in giving this living monument its proper home.
