Above Ground Electrical Building Gains Upgrade
Laughlin Life Station No. 2 Rehabilitatoin
FOR the 7,300 residents of Laughlin, Nevada, upgrading a local lift station would mean a cleaner and more efficient way to handle the population’s wastewater and sewage concerns. Lift stations are designed to move waste materials from a lower to higher elevation without costly excavation. The $175,000 price tag for Laughlin Lift Station No. 2 Rehabilitation would be money well spent for years to come.
Jensen Precast built the 125,000 pound housing for the structure at its manufacturing facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. “We poured the concrete wall panels first, added metal embeds into the panels, recessed the embed plates, stood up the panels with braces, welded the panels together, and added caulking to seal the joints,” explains Ryan Black, Jensen Precast Las Vegas Plant Manager. “For the interior finish we put in insulation and vinyl flooring. When you have electrical buildings, the vinyl adds an antistatic element to preserve the equipment.”
In addition to the electrical building, Jensen Precast supplied the pump vaults for the structure. Rounding out the project, the contractor installed a flow meter, manhole, chemical tank, lighting, and various other components.
