Skanska Revitalizes Tech Center's Methane Flare Tower in Houston, TX

Location: Houston, Texas
Industry:
Construction
Location:
Houston, Texas
Services Performed:
Surface Finishing
Sq footage of work:
38 feet high tower

Client Background

Skanska, a leader in global construction and development, has been shaping the infrastructure and buildings across the United States since 1971. From its origins in a small Swedish fishing village, Skanska has grown into one of the largest and most respected construction companies in the world, with a strong focus on sustainable and innovative solutions. 

Facility Description

The facility in question sits in Houston, Texas, and is a hub of innovation and technology development. Among its many facilities is the methane flare tower and housing, essential components in the center's operations. Standing 38 feet tall, the flare tower is a critical structure requiring precise and careful maintenance.

Requested Maintenance

The project's primary goal was to address failing paint and refresh the exterior of the methane flare tower and housing. Due to the sensitive nature of the site and strict regulatory requirements, traditional blasting methods could not be used. Instead, the project necessitated the use of power washing techniques to prepare the surface for repainting.

Decision Driver and Timing

The driving factor for this maintenance project was the deterioration of the existing paint, which necessitated a comprehensive refresh to maintain the facility's functionality and compliance with industry standards. The project was timely executed to minimize any potential disruptions to the Technology Center's operations.

Scope of Work

  • Initial site assessment to understand the extent of the paint failure and to plan the maintenance strategy
  • Power washing of the flare tower and housing to remove old paint and prepare the surface for repainting, adhering to environmental regulations
  • Application of high-quality, durable paint suitable for the facility's operational conditions, ensuring longevity and resistance to the harsh operational environment
  • Continuous communication with Skanska and the facility team to ensure project alignment with client expectations and safety standards.

Notable Details

Regulatory Compliance

The project was carefully planned and executed to meet the stringent environmental and safety regulations of the site, demonstrating our team's ability to adapt to challenging conditions without compromising on quality.

Minimal Disruption

Through meticulous planning and coordination, the project was completed with minimal disruption to the facility’s operations, showcasing our commitment to client convenience and operational continuity.

Innovation and Adaptability

The use of power washing instead of traditional blasting methods highlighted our team's ability to innovate and adapt to specific project requirements and regulatory constraints.

Client Satisfaction
