Wood Pellet Bulk Storage Warehouse
In July of 2015 a fire devastated two bulk storage warehouses containing wood pellets at a port in Brunswick, GA. The disaster created the immediate need for a replacement facility. Every day without sufficient storage capacity was costing the client significant lost revenue, so the completion timeline was crucial. Logistec Corp. awarded the design-build contract for the #4 Terminal Bulk Shed Project to Allen & Graham.
To meet the client’s demands, the design and construction of a new 80-foot tall, 140,000 square foot warehouse were performed simultaneously. The project included a metal building, concrete containment walls, a pile-supported containment wall, complex conveyor systems, a dust collection system, and various fire prevention systems. During the project over 100,000 MHS were worked with no accidents.
The warehouse stores 50,000 tons of wood pellets which are loaded onto ships and transported to European countries to be used as fuel for the generation of power.
The entire project was designed and constructed in 8 months.
This project was awarded the 2016 AGC Build Georgia Award.

Plant Vogtle Water Intake Structure
Allen & Graham constructed the water intake structure on the Savannah River for Plat Vogtle Nuclear Power Facility Units 3&4. These are the first nuclear reactors constructed in US in over 30 years.
The intake structure consists of approximately 10,000 CY of concrete and is divided into 9 bays with 3' thick walls extending 40' high. The top of the structure is a 3' thick elevated slab with complex block-outs and embeds for drainage and equipment. Many of the pours were made using a self-consolidated concrete due to the size and intricacy of the reinforcing steel.
Working in a nuclear environment, there were very stringent qualifty control and safety requirements. A&G's 115,000 manhours resulted in zero OSHA recordable incidents.
