We were proud to do a home-town job at this Hamilton facility, completely rebuilding the infrastructure around one blast furnace, while a second blast furnace continued operations right beside us.
We began by surveying the existing steel infrastructure and then doing extensive modeling and visualization. The client wanted the furnace operational (and therefore generating revenue) as quickly as possible. Our designing and planning allowed us to complete the rebuild in under a year.
Construction sites can be busy and chaotic at the best of times, but carrying out such a major infrastructure project within the confines of an operational steel plant created many additional logistical and safety challenges. As always, our solution involved investing in extensive planning, modeling and visualizing before we began construction, which ensured a fast, safe, and worry-free construction.
