USG – Red Wing

Having a trusted relationship with USG Interiors since 1985, Boldt has completed hundreds of maintenance and capital projects throughout the years. These projects include new construction, plant outages, office renovations, structural steel and foundations, concrete and equipment installations, manufacturing line conversions, warehousing space, boiler installations and manufacturing facility expansions. Most of these projects were completed while the facilities were in full operation.

Following a structural assessment of the Red Wing facility, a two-phase renovation was started. Phase I involved structural steel replacement to the building. The structural remediation and rehabilitation scope was for restoring a portion of the plant to its original condition, working up to a building elevation of 137’6”. Phase II involved shoring the existing structure to selectively demolish portions of the building, while replacing the corroded beams with new structural steel members and concrete floors. Critical equipment and material storage bins were also replaced. The project footprint was a four-by-four column line area on four elevations and up to 70 feet above grade.
