Mechanical Facilities

BTC has constructed an array of mechanical facilities.

From water treatment plants to sewer lift stations, the mechanical facilities division specializes in structures   containing complex mechanical assemblies.

Past projects have included: 

  • Pump stations
  • Vaults
  • Roadway panel replacement
  • Retaining walls
  • Storm water management, including: box culverts, spillways and diversion structures 


Featured Project: Holly Booster Station

History

The City of Thornton, incorporated in 1956, has grown from 786 acres to over 23,000 acres, with the largest percentage of land use being residential. Consequently, potable water requirements have risen accordingly.  The Holly Street Booster Station, located near the intersection of 124th & Holly Street, was built to supplement pressures in the gravity fed Pressure Zone 1 during the high-demand summer months.

Challenges

Installation of the 24 MGD EFI pump station, 30" MAG meter vault, 30" check valves, 30" BFV's  & valve vaults along with the associated 30" piping with tie-ins to Thornton's existing system  - all within a very small footprint and in keeping with a very tight schedule.  Coordination of long-lead time components with multiple milestone dates for tie-ins and shut downs required exhaustive pre-planning.

Solutions

Extensive planning and the ability to build a schedule around the project's restrictive parameters was key.  Then we throw in healthy dose of flexibility, adjusting on-the-fly when issues arise, as they very often do in our industry.
