Project Description:

Construction Completion: 2008
Facility Operations & Maintenance: Ongoing

This project involved the construction of an approximately 250,000 square-foot high-bay, structural-steel panel building. The building is part of a river clean-up facility and houses equipment used to treat sediment dredged out of the Lower Fox River. As a result of this project’s tight time schedule, construction began before the design was complete. This forced the Miron project team to work through different issues as they arose.

Frequent meetings between a full-time quality control professional, a full-time safety individual, a full-time project manager, and the Owner ensured Miron completed the typically 40-week project in 13 weeks. This collaborative effort saved the Owner from paying substantial penalties to federal agencies. Utilization of seven cranes, four forklifts, and thirteen boom lifts on site simultaneously also assisted in the rapid successful completion. At the completion of this building, the Miron project team had poured 22,000 cubic yards of steel-reinforced concrete.

“I personally have managed projects in every state but Maine and this is the best work force I have ever been associated with.... We averaged over 140 workers per day over the last 7 months and each worker understood our time schedule and did their share of the work to ensure we met the milestones established for this project. In less than 10 months we redesigned and constructed a 247,200 square foot process building which required approximately 25,000 cubic yards of concrete for the foundation. Thanks again for the dedicated team.”
