Structural engineering for a first of its kind solar-to-steam technology designed to use 7,000 mirrors to reflect sunlight onto a 323 ft tower to produce steam, which is injected into an oil well to make oil easier to extract. Design consisted of engineering of structural steel tower superstructure modifications and additions, foundations, cable tray and pipe supports, equipment racks and anchorage, and elevated walkways.
Structural design for interior renovation of existing 2-story administration and support areas located in the approximately 181,000 SF Building 2 Hangar including maintenance and office space. Building 2 is a structural steel framed building supported by a cantilevered truss system which spans over both hangar bays and the admin/support areas. Project included installation of access platforms for new air handling units, structural repairs to the existing monorail support system at north side of Building, and the partial enclosure of exterior storage sheds.
