Oldcastle Infrastructure Supplies Infrastructure Panel Vault System for New School Detention System

Oldcastle Infrastructure Supplies Infrastructure Panel Vault System for New School Detention System

As part of Lake Washington School District’s new Redmond Elementary School project, Oldcastle Infrastructure Auburn was contracted to supply several hundred precast concrete panel sections for two massive detention vaults for the school’s new stormwater conveyance system.

BNBuilders Construction, BLRB Architects, AHBL Engineering and Oldcastle Infrastructure Auburn collaborated in the creation of the new stormwater conveyance system in order to meet the requirements set by the Washington’s Department of Ecology.

“What we ended up doing was precasting the elements for the detention vault and craning them into place, instead of casting in place, saving us about two and one‐half months, per vault, in the construction schedule,” stated a member of the Lake Washington School District Support Services Team. “We are incorporating several different measures into the stormwater conveyance system, both naturally and mechanically, to hold, filter, clean and discharge clean stormwater. The engineering behind the site stormwater system is pretty amazing.”

Oldcastle Infrastructure Auburn provided 274 precast pieces, including flat base slabs, top slabs, and wall panels. Built between August 14‐ 22, 2017, the north detention vault measured 44‐foot‐wide by 178‐foot‐long by various‐height and the south vault, scheduled for November installation, will be 44‐foot‐wide by 220‐foot‐long by 8‐foot‐tall. In addition, Oldcastle Infrastructure furnished ladders, cast iron covers, risers, grates and covers.

“Using precast provided a variety of benefits including strength, durability, and flexibility of design,” remarked Rick Roof, Project Manager of Oldcastle Infrastructure Auburn. “Additionally, it vastly improved the construction schedule, operational efficiencies and overall quality of the detention structures for this project.”

The segmented precast stormwater vaults hold approximately 900,000 gallons of water, allowing sediment to settle, causing filtered “clean” water to be discharged to the storm drainage system. Each precast panel was sealed using hydrophobic sealer. As soon as water touches the hydrophobic sealer, the water triggers it to spread, harden, and cure between the panels, so there is no seepage. The overall construction of the precast concrete panel vault took six days.

Impervious paving will be above the precast concrete detention vaults. The stormwater will drain through pipes on the surface paving and flow into the vault.

Oldcastle Infrastructure Area Technical Manager, Deon Lourens, remarked, “These are complicated structures and it’s great to see what our capabilities are as a company. The benefits of precast are speed, quality and versatility, which saves time and money for on‐ site contractors.”

“The Oldcastle Infrastructure Auburn plant did an excellent job and made this happen! It is a great looking job! We have completed the north stormwater detention vault and the south stormwater detention vault will be installed in November 2017,” he added.

This Lake Washington School District project is one of the new elementary schools to serve the Redmond Learning Community that was included in the Long‐Term Facilities Planning Task Force recommendations. The new school is built to house 690 elementary students under state‐funded class size reductions.

Supply Drive Held for Women’s Crisis Services of Leflore County

Oldcastle Enclosures Solutions of Poteau, Oklahoma, one of the most innovative and largest manufacturers of enclosure products, donated supplies to Leflore County‐based Women’s Crisis Services providing the center with the basic hygiene products many of the women did not have.

Around the clock and all year long, organizations like the Women’s Crisis Services of Leflore County serve women and families in crisis. Simply, they need to keep the supplies well‐stocked to continue to serve their community.

An effective way to help is through supply drives. Having an opportunity to do something many of us take for granted, like taking a shower or having a safe place to take our children, can be a game‐changer for a woman escaping a dangerous situation.

Accordingly, Oldcastle Enclosures held a supply drive for basic hygiene products. They established a contribution area inside Oldcastle Enclosure Solution’s plant for all employees to furnish hygiene products. On September 9, 2017, the Women’s Crisis Center came by the plant to accept the donations.

“Oldcastle Enclosure Solutions and its employees are privileged to support such a great organization,” said the Poteau community team. “The Women’s Crisis Center was very happy to see the number of products that had been collected by our employees.” “WCS would like to say Thank You to Oldcastle Enclosures for their donation earlier this month. We truly appreciate everything you do! Thank you and God Bless!!” said the staff at the Women’s Crisis Center. “The time and effort you put into this project is greatly appreciated.”

AVON, Conn. (November 10, 2017)

Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon Supports Breast Cancer Awareness During Annual Event “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”

Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon Supports Breast Cancer Awareness During Annual Event “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”

Supporting their community through Litchfield’s White Memorial Foundation Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk

On Sunday October 22nd, at the nature preserve of White Memorial Conservation Center, Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon engaged in this year’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk” in Litchfield Connecticut to help raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research.

“Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Litchfield County 2017” involved a 5K (or 3.1‐mile) non‐competitive, non‐timed walk, attracting more than 500 participants and several local teams. Several walkers sported pink T‐shirts, sneakers, feather boas, face‐ painting and hair dyes in hues ranging from salmon to fuchsia. Pink is the official color of the American Cancer Society’s yearly nationwide endeavors to raise money for treatment, assistance and research to combat breast cancer.

One of the teams hailed from Oldcastle Infrastructure, a precast concrete manufacturing company in Avon, Connecticut. Plant accountant Dana Bock-Decoteau was one of the company’s participating 45 employees and their families who walked. “We are here to raise awareness and money for breast cancer,” she said. “It is a significant cause to support and we are happy to have raised $2,710 this year.” Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon plans to sponsor next year’s event.

The event featured raffle prizes, wood‐fired pizza and a survivors dining tent. Organizers said the event will eventually raise $46,000 by year’s end for breast cancer treatment, assistance and research.

“Cancer Facts & Figures 2017,” a yearly study by the American Cancer Society, approximates that there will be an estimated 1,688,780 new cancer cases diagnosed and 600,920 cancer deaths in the U.S. this year.  Within that group, 252,710 women will be diagnosed (40,610 will die) and 2,470 men will be diagnosed, 460 will die.

The Making Strides Walk was established in 1984 when Massachusetts breast cancer survivor Margery Gould Rath wanted to find a way to celebrate with fellow cancer survivors and to raise funds. Gould Rath created a “move‐along‐a‐thon.” The first event, held in Boston, drew 200 participants and became an annual city tradition. By 1993, the event became officially known as the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, attracting 4,000 walkers in New England towns and in 250 communities nationwide. Gould Rath remained a dedicated Making Strides volunteer until she lost her battle with cancer in 2001.

The American Cancer Society estimates that since 1993, more than 13 million walkers nationwide have raised more than $810 million. Funds raised from the event go toward early‐detection education efforts, research and providing information, care and assistance to people impacted by cancer.

BUFFALO, NY (November 1, 2017)

Precast Wall Panel System Used for Airport FAA ALS Generator Building

Precast Wall Panel System Used for Airport FAA ALS Generator Building

Using precast concrete custom made wall panels and hollow core plank, Oldcastle Infrastructure Newnan, Ga., working in conjunction with CNS Communications, LLC, constructed the newly upgraded emergency generator runway light control building at Buffalo’s International airport.

Owner of Buffalo International Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration contracted CNS Communications, LLC to provide an upgraded FAA Approach Lighting Systems (ALS) generator building for one of the gates at the airport.

After review, the owner and CNS Communications selected a precast wall panel system as the best option for the airport location and awarded the precast contract to Oldcastle Infrastructure of Newnan, Ga. (Project Leader), Easton, Pa. and Selkirk, NY to design, engineer, produce and outfit the new ALS building.

After manufacturing the custom precast wall panels, the 32‐foot by 44‐foot (ALS) generator building was constructed by erecting and connecting each 6‐inch thick, insulated, precast wall panel, including interior concrete partition wall for the different sectors which included electrical controls, workshop and generator room. The building’s final exterior dimensions were 44’0” Long x 32’0” Wide x 11’11” High.

To enclose the roof, 8‐inch thick, precast concrete hollow core plank was specified, making the building a very durable, safe and secure structure for the airport.

In addition to the precast products, Oldcastle Infrastructure outfitted the building with all interior wall, floor and ceiling finishes as well as doors and openings, HVAC/Environmental systems, exhaust / intake air system, lighting, and alarms.

Vice President – Regional General Manager Gene Drake, P.E. stated, “We took a lot of pride in this project because it demonstrated the cooperation, reach and varied core competencies of several Oldcastle Infrastructure units.  While our Newnan, GA, plant was the project leader, our Easton, Pa., plant made the wall panels, our Building Systems Division plant in New York made the roof panels and the construction management was handled by our Modular Group.  Four units from four different states pulled together to complete one outstanding project which demonstrated a degree of expertise and coordination that not many companies could offer.”
