Often referred to as “an incredible addition to the community,” the 101,927-square-foot Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center (owned and operated by The Salvation Army), located on Lime Kiln Road in Green Bay, is a true community resource. The new LEED Silver-certified facility, built on a 16-acre parcel donated by a neighboring industrial meat-packing plant, offers the latest in aquatic and athletic environments, as well as theater arts and community spaces. The facility features a double gymnasium, swimming pool/aquatic center, wellness/fitness center, chapel/auditorium/performing arts center, neighborhood resource center, dental clinic and education rooms for art, music, dance, computers, youth activities and more.
The $3 million Zippin Pippin Roller Coaster, located in city-owned Bay Beach Amusement Park in Green Bay, was designed to replicate a wooden roller coaster, renowned as Elvis Presley’s favorite amusement park ride that operated for numerous years in Memphis, Tenn. Miron built the 7,000-piece, 70-foot-tall, 2,400 linear-foot-long wooden coaster, beginning with construction of the frame on concrete footings and continuing with the installation of the wooden tracks and affixment of the steel plates to the tracks to support the coaster cars. Upon completion of construction of the coaster, Miron also performed the mechanical installation portion of the project. The ride opened to the public in May 2011.
The $17 million Rhinelander Wastewater Treatment Facility was constructed to comply with terms of the DNR’s phosphorous removal requirements. The project encompassed the construction of a main lift station on the existing site and the construction of 13 separate structures on a new Greenfield site. The structures on the new site included: headworks building, primary clarifiers, aeration basin, process control building, final clarifiers, digester building, thermophilic digester, mesophilic digester, sludge processing building, area lift station, sludge storage building and pad, administration building and a service garage. The new plant employs a biological phosphorous removal process that limits the presence of phosphorous in the wastewater to one part per million, a considerable improvement in terms of environmental impact from the previous facility, which used a chemical treatment process and only achieved the standard of 3.5 parts per million.
The $14.6 million Bush Brothers & Company Wastewater Treatment & Biogas Facility project consisted of the construction of an industrial wastewater treatment-to-renewable energy facility. Miron was responsible for all site work and tie-in to the existing force main, all above- and below-grade mechanical piping and ancillary equipment, all electrical, control and instrumentation, installation of an anaerobic reactor and related gas safety equipment, an aeration basis and clarifier, earthen-lined storage lagoons, biogas storage, H2S removal, compression and drying equipment with enclosures, a 633kW biogas engine generator and construction of an administration / control building. Miron successfully completed 1,200-linear-feet of footing and a 12-foot-high retaining wall in five weeks, construction of a new 36-million-gallon lined storage lagoon, aeration basin basement concrete placement in excess of 1,000 cubic yards, H2S removal utilizing both chemical and biological scrubbing and complied with all project DOE 1603 grant requirements.
