Special Metals Corp. Furnaces Installation
“The work performed by C&S was a ‘turn-key’ design build installation for 3 new melting furnaces. C&S was selected to ensure the installation met corporate’s demanding and aggressive schedule. With their expertise and broad contractor network, C&S completed the job safely, professionally, code compliant, on budget, and on schedule.” —Peter Girard, P.E., Process Engineer
C&S designed and installed two vacuum arc remelting (VAR) furnaces and one electro-slag remelting (ESR) furnace. The design included support structures, underground pits, mezzanines, a pump house addition, cooling tower supports and all electrical and mechanical systems required to serve the furnaces. Special Metals Corp. contracted directly with C&S via a design/build project delivery after the preliminary engineering phase was complete. C&S’s integrated design and construction teams and delivered the project seamlessly. The project was completed on an accelerated schedule to meet Special Metal’s customer’s delivery requirements. Construction began as the final details of the design were being completed and included a deep cast in place concrete pit, structural steel framing, equipment mezzanines, mechanical installation, and a new MCC.
