Osram Sylvania Scrap Recovery Pit Expansion

This expansion consisted of two new collection pits and 85 lineal feet of additional scrap tunnel utilizing tilt-up panel design. This design minimized the exposure of the operating glass plant to the construction area and safety risk to Bristol’s crew and maximized the final floor space of the production areas. Panels were poured while excavation was underway, greatly reducing construction time compared to conventional systems. Collection pits and tunnel were covered by checkered plates supported by beams welded to embed cast into the panels. Structural demolition, concrete and structural ironwork were all performed by Bristol’s crews.

Central Manufacturing Press Bay Addition No. 2

This project included the 56-foot-high structure and foundation required to accommodate a 4,000-ton transfer press. Significant savings were achieved by jacking a 13,000 sq. ft. portion of the existing roof from an elevation of 30 ft. to 56 ft. with minimal disruption of ongoing operations. This unique operation was accomplished in one week.
