SMC manufactured and installed eight precast concrete buildings as part of an overhaul of the Wilderness Wastewater Plant in Orange County, Va. Worth more than $350,000, the new buildings will allow the two million gallon-per-day plant to meet enhanced nutrient removal requirements.
“The buildings will serve a variety of purposes,” said Matthew Smith, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Smith-Midland. “We will deliver five Easi-Set precast concrete buildings measuring 12 feet by 16 feet and 12 feet by 20 feet that will house pump stations and electrical equipment. Three larger Easi-Span buildings, measuring 14 feet by 30 feet and 30 feet by 40 feet will house a return sludge pump, administrative offices and restrooms.”
Easi-Set and Easi-Span precast concrete buildings have been manufactured by Smith-Midland Corporation for almost 40 years. Fabricated as separate wall, roof and floor panels, the buildings feature the patented Easi-Set post-tensioning system in the roof and floor, a turn-down roof that caps the walls, and a step-down floor panel to eliminate the possibility of water migration into the building along the bottom of the wall panels. Easi-Set buildings are virtually maintenance free, are available in a variety of sizes and finishes, and are fully customizable. They are typically assembled at the plant, delivered to the customer's site and installed on a concrete slab or gravel pad in a matter of hours.
