Midstream Blast Resistant Control Room

Industry: Midstream

Location: Mont Belvieu, Texas

BG Division: Industrial Buildings & Architecture

Project Name: Midstream Operations Blast Resistant Control Room

Scope: Design and Build Blast Resistant South Plant Control Building combining (3) control buildings into one.  Also, Design/Build Electrical and Fiber Package

Client Benefits: The South Plant Control Building combined (3) control room areas into one new central location with all new equipment and monitoring devices.

Project Drivers & Client Challenges:
BGS had several phases for the project due to an existing fully operational and occupied administration building 10’ from the control building. The project involved combining the existing operational control buildings into one location.

Project Description: 
The South Plant 3 psi Blast Resistant Control Building Project involved building a control building (6300 sf) which would combine (3) control room facilities into one central location. The scope included the control building with the foundation consisting of drilled piers, grade beams, and slab. The building was constructed with concrete tilt wall panel walls and a concrete roof (with modified bitumen cover). There was a control room, offices, a mechanical room, an electrical room, a kitchen (with appliances), a lab room, a conference room, and restroom facilities. UPS system, backup generator, HVAC (including stack), fire alarm, fire suppression, gas detection and controls were included. Permanent power and fiber runs from (3) facilities inside the plant to the control room were included. Sitework included utilities, parking lots with striping and light poles, and fencing was installed. An outside operators building foundation with utilities, fiber, and a parking lot was installed. The project was construction managed by Burrow Global and most construction crafts were subcontracted. Client satisfaction was high.
