Case Study - Compressor Building
Lumberton Compressor Building
Our client needed to increase their gas compression capabilities at an existing compressor station located in eastern North Carolina. They needed to expand an existing compressor building to house an additional compressor unit. USSI was awarded this project because we had successfully designed, engineered, and erected the existing building a few years prior to this expansion. Our relationship with the client on the first project provided our client with the confidence and trust that all existing compressor building characteristics and exact specifications would be followed. This ensured that the new building looked and performed exactly like the old building after the extension was put in place. USSI was able to provide new columns, panels, ventilation, and crane parts to match the existing project – allowing the client to continue operations normally.
The extended building was completed on-time and operational in 2016.
