Smith-Midland Awarded $350,000 Contract Company to Provide Eight Precast Concrete Buildings to Improve Wilderness Wastewater Plant
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.
