Construction Survey Staking New Steel Mill

by Pete Brothers 4. April 2012 10:28

Steel making is back! My hometown Pittsburgh is popping with activity around the Marcellus Shale natural gas boom. But another big story is steel and a new $1.3 billion steel mill project just north of Pittsburgh and near our office.

I am coordinating construction staking for a portion of the massive project. I have four crews on our piece of the project which involves providing high accuracy placement of pilings and third-party as-built surveying. I am amazed at the increasing activity and the progress each week. To meet tight schedules, we are operating six days a week on site for Allegheny Technologies Incorporated, Allegheny Ludlum Corporation, the mill owners. This will be an advanced-specialty metals, hot-rolling processing facility.
