- Self Performed Structural Concrete
Flowserve, a world leader in the manufacturing of valves in the energy industry, hired Big-D as the Construction Manager/General Contractor to expand their Springville, Utah manufacturing facility. The new facility was built to manufacture large size valves. To accommodate these large valves, the concrete tilt panels comprising the exterior of the building addition were 50 feet in height. Big-D’s concrete goup provided design assistance to the architect to help them design panels that would be constructable at this height.
The project also necessitated that a new access road be built prior to construction since the existing shipping lane ran through the area comprising the future expansion. The addition included two loading docks, a bridge crane, valve test areas built with structural blast requirements and eight jib cranes.
