Big Piney Helium Plant
WLC was hired by Air Products and Chemicals, the project owner, and TIC, the project’s contractor, to provide surveying layout and materials testing services. The project involved construction of a liquid helium facility. This is one of the only helium liquefaction plants constructed in the US in the previous 10 years. Surveying work included construction layout and grade control. Materials testing services included soil compaction testing (nuclear gauge), asphalt testing and concrete testing (slump, air, temperature, cylinders/strength). Observation work included construction inspection of concrete, steel, and soils.
