New River Castings


This project involved the repairs of a 178,500 square foot foundry after an in-plant explosion and fire. Significant damage and collapse of portions of the structures occurred at the center of the explosion. The surrounding areas sustained various amounts of damage, including overloading of main structural members and failure of roofing and siding. Engineering consisted of: Detailed structural condition assessment of all structures to identify the extent of damage and determine the repairs necessary to make the facility operational. Design of temporary shoring to stablize structures that were damaged to prevent collapse until rebuild could take place. Design of repairs/modifications to existing structures to remain.
