M.R. Pittman Group, LLC
M.R. Pittman was the major subcontractor for this USACE project for Cycle Construction Co. of Kenner, Louisiana. M.R. Pittman performed 85% of the total contract successfully completing all of the major scope disciplines required to provide a turn-key civil and mechanical pump station package. The scope of the project involved the construction of a new pump station including the installation of two 300 CFS pumps each driven by a 1500HP electric motor connected to 300 linear feet of 72” concrete coated steel discharge piping. The new pump station also contained full electrical, instrumentation and controls packages along with a 3500kW Diesel Engine Generator set and a 400kW House Generator Package. The project scope included the installation of 300 linear feet of 72” diameter steel discharge piping with 2” of exterior concrete mortar coating. Due to limited site access, construction of the discharge pipe supports and installation of the discharge pipe had to take place prior to the start of the pump station construction. Installation of a deep temporary retaining structure was required for the construction of the new pump station intake basin.
