This project involved the construction of two “scrubber” buildings and numerous auxiliary equipment units for a large coal-burning power station in Homer City, Pennsylvania. The two buildings house NID™ Flue Gas Desulfurization systems, which combine to eliminate the majority of pollution output from the plant. The two identical buildings each stand 120 feet tall with a footprint of 26,000 square feet, and rest on a foundation of alternating 4.5 foot thick mats and 12 inch slabs. The additional equipment structures included booster fans, mixing tanks, water silos, electrical enclosures and a compressor building. To improve the bearing capacity and keep total settlement requirements, Menard implemented a design-build ground improvement solution using Controlled Modulus Columns (CMC)™ Rigid Inclusions.
