An aluminum casting facility, Rudick Construction utilized conventional steel and pre-cast concrete panels to create 60,000 SF of production space, with canopy structures. The facility itself included a 175,000-gallon concrete cooling basin for process water and an 8’ diameter hole which reached 80’ below finished floor to create the aluminum billet. During construction of the 80’ subgrade pit, Rudick mitigated a minimum of about 75,000 gallons of water on a daily basis, in order to maintain the initially promised schedule. Alongside the insurmountable amount of groundwater bypassed, the concrete construction of the pit had a ½” tolerance over the entire 80’ piston chamber. Rudick worked hand in hand with Western’s manufacturing vendors to ensure each step of the project dovetailed with their equipment and commissioning schedule. Site work included mitigating FEMA land by adding a 27,000sf detention pond, and 350lf concrete retaining wall.
