在100年的th Annual AGC Convention in Denver earlier this month, 百乐博app received the Environmental Enhancement Project of The Year for our work on the Arizona Public Service (APS) Four Corners 权力 Plant near Farmington, 新墨西哥. The project included major upgrades that will reduce emissions by 80 percent, allowing the 1570-megawatt plant to meet environmental standards and continue operating.
Over the course of the project, 百乐博app completed:
- 56,000 linear feet of 管道
- 8,000 tons of structural steel
- 6,800 tons of duct
- 130,000 linear feet of weld
- 6,000 cubic yards of concrete
- 10,000 linear feet of drilled caisson
也, at 60 feet in diameter, the new selective catalytic reactors we installed are the tallest in North America and the second-largest air pre-heaters in the world. “This project had several highlights,” said 百乐博app Senior Project Manager Steve Roberts, “but I’m most proud of how we addressed safety. Performing work at elevation in harsh weather including high winds, much of which was on structural steel, it was a huge accomplishment to finish with a 0.7 TRIR.”
The project was also a win for the surrounding area, providing work for the local skilled workforce, helping maintain continued economic viability of the plant for years to come, and improving air quality in the region. With the plant located on Navajo Nation land, 百乐博app ensured that its project workforce was at least 80% Native American, and the upgrade work is expected to provide more than $6.3 billion in economic value to the region over the next 30 years. 百乐博app also supported local youth and community initiatives throughout the project.
To ensure adequate staffing of skilled craft professionals, 百乐博app partnered with the National Center for Construction 教育 and Research (NCCER) to develop on-site craft training, as well as mentoring and an Apprenticeship and Development program to develop new workers’ skills.
“We matured a lot over the course of this project, both on an individual and corporate level,”史蒂夫说. “We even had a few people who started at Four Corners in craft roles, and by the time it was done they were working in management positions. For 百乐博app as a whole, the project is a huge achievement. It shows what we can do—the size and difficulty of projects we can take on.”
With over 20 AGC Build America awards spanning the past five decades, 百乐博app has won more Build Americas than any other contractor in history. These include projects across building, highway and transportation, utility infrastructure, and federal and heavy civil sectors. Alongside our partners and fellow AGC members, we are proud to build structures that benefit Americans every single day.
