FRIB Project Announcement
Shaw is pleased to announce that we have recently been awarded the electrical contract for the new “Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB)”.
Scheduled for completion in 2022, the FRIB will be a new national user facility for nuclear science. The project is being funded by the Department of Energy's Office of Science, Michigan State University (MSU) and the State of Michigan.
To be operated by MSU - home of the nation's No. 1-ranked graduate nuclear physics program - the centerpiece of the FRIB will be a superconducting linear accelerator that will dramatically increase the reach of rare isotope research in the United States. The accelerator will produce isotopes that normally exist only in the most extreme environments in the universe and will greatly expand the usefulness of isotopes in a broad range of applications from modeling stars to understanding the workings of nanoscale electronic devices.
Case Study: PC-748 Baby Creek CSO Control Facility
Owner: City of Detroit Water & Sewerage Department
Prime Contractor: Walbridge
Project Manager: Robert Marsh
Project Foreman: Doug DeBastos
Completed: Summer of 2007
The Baby Creek CSO Control Facility was built to handle storm water. The building is designed to screen the incoming sewer overflow, chemically treat the storm water, and release the overflow to the Detroit River with treatment rather than in a raw form as was previously done.
