Michigan Contractor Tackles New, Challenging Excavation Project

August 2011, Vol. 66 No. 8

“We learned a lot of new things on the Hampton Road project, not the least of which is that a slide rail is an awesome system,” explained Schmidt. “It worked so well, we’ve used it on two other projects since then.”

In March 2011, Tri-City installed another large cast-in-place wet-well for the city of Saginaw’s McCarty Road Lift Station project. The round wet-well was 25-feet in diameter and 38-feet tall. It was installed in another ClearSpan Slide Rail System that was 40 by 40 by 32-feet deep. At the same time that the large wet well was being poured, Tri-City completed a tap on a chilled water line at Central Michigan University. Tri-City made the tap inside a 20 by 20 by 20-foot, four sided slide rail system.
