Forming & Shoring for Concrete Construction
The Fenton Wastewater Treatment Plant sets next to the Meramec River. Heavy flooding, including a 500-year flood in December of 2015, has taken its toll on the Wastewater Treatment Facility.
Up Front Planning, Engineering and Training
To minimize the number of construction joints, bulkheads, pump truck charges and manpower, Brockmiller formed and poured this digester in two pours
