Sealevel Construction Receives Excellence in Construction Award
Sealevel Construction of Thibodaux has earned an Excellence in Construction Merit Award for the Citgo Clifton Ridge Terminal Fire Protection Improvements project in Sulphur, La. The EIC awards program is the construction industry’s leading competition that honors both general and specialty contractors for innovative and high-quality projects. The Associated Builders and Contractors of Greater Houston (ABC) recognized Sealevel at their virtual awards ceremony on October 22, 2020.
President of Sealevel Construction Richard Roth said, “This is a great honor. It speaks highly of our team’s work ethic, innovation and commitment to safe performance. We are very proud of our team’s accomplishment.”
The purpose of this multifaceted project was to allow Citgo Petroleum Corporation to utilize the Calcasieu River as the facility’s fire protection water source. Due to the high volume of water necessary to charge the fire protection system, the facility would simply use the natural resource flowing through their tank farm.
As the subcontractor, Sealevel’s portion of the project consisted of a cofferdam, drafting pit, pipe piles, flared headwall, retaining wall, 2,200 square feet of concrete paving, and a boat ramp. In total, the project called for 220 cubic yards of concrete and 17 tons of rebar.
Once Sealevel completed the foundation work, the general contractor, Benton’s Equipment and Construction, returned to the site to install the two six-inch high flow diesel water pumps that has the capabilities to pump 3,000 gallons of water per minute to the entire facility. The team tested the system and reported that the completed project is 100% operational for Citgo Petroleum Corporation to utilize at a moment’s notice.
Congratulations to Sealevel Construction!
