Project Scope:

Materion (formerly Brush Wellman) constructed a new pebble processing plant to provide the US DoD with beryllium for use in optical devices in military aircraft, missile defense units, and satellite structures. IPS completed several projects for the new Plant.

  • Site Development of the 50-acre site, Installed the building pad and utilities in a green field area.
  • Interior Process Steel – Fabricated and erected 800 tons of support steel for new floors and equipment.
  • Interior Concrete – Poured 100,000 SF of floors on the 23’-0 and 46’-0 levels, and formed and poured a 40’-wide x 20’-long x 22’-high concrete structure.
  • Magnesium Storage Building – Turnkey construction of a 3,000 SF facility, including all infrastructure.
  • Locker Room Expansion – Turnkey construction inside existing facility.

IPS also completed the metal studs and drywall, doors and windows, and industrial coatings packages along with outside blast walls for the furnace, genset installation, and AEP locker room clean air system

Project Scope:

Fenner Dunlop is the world’s leader in the field of conveyor belting, manufacturing the most comprehensive range of conveyor systems for many industries and applications.

IPS was contracted to provide setting, aligning, and installation services for five (5) process equipment lines: calendar line; steel cord press line; fabric belt press line; inspection line; and laminating line. Scope of work include process piping, process electrical, and equipment installation.

The preplanning for the equipment moves began while the building was being erected. Provisions had to be made for the process piping runs to be integrated within the building and the process electrical runs that had to be embedded within the concrete. Additionally, alignment plates were strategically placed in order to ensure that each individual process line was precisely installed to meet the required tolerances.

IPS was also responsible for the installation of all electrical work in the new building to support the expansion. Planning and pre-work was completed prior to the substation retrofit, which took place during a 72-hour shutdown over Thanksgiving. IPS worked around-the-clock to ensure the substation was available to the customer a full day earlier than required.
