Administration, Control & Process Plant Buildings for $650 million
Coal Gasification Plant
Dow Chemical, Destec Energy Division
Terre Haute, Indiana
Because large Federal subsidies depended on meeting
the tight schedule, our work on this plant went on seven days a
week. Jungclaus designed and built every building in this picture
and delivered them on time and budget.
A surprise obstacle was finding that sliding doors
Dow had selected would have required a costly change of structural
steel. In response, Jungclaus’s Design-Build
department designed, engineered and, in our own shop, built
the mammoth sliding doors – some as large as 24 feet high
– needed to gain access to equipment. The savings were substantial,
demonstrating again Jungclaus’s ability to deliver lower
total project cost.
