SOUTH RIVER TUNNEL PUMP STATION SLIPFORM

South River Tunnel Pump Station Slipform - Atlanta, Ga.

YEAR COMPLETED
2011
CLIENT
City of Atlanta
SCOPE
Design and Construction

The team of T. E. Ibberson Company (TEI), Kiewit and Western Summit Constructors were awarded the contract to upgrade the water/wastewater infrastructure for the City of Atlanta. The project included the construction of a new underground pump station shaft with a finished diameter of 50 feet high and over 175 feet deep. 

Slipforming was the preferred method of construction that lined the excavated shaft with a three-foot-thick (nominal) reinforced concrete wall. This reduced the overall construction schedule by several months and added safety of a full custom engineered work platform with the quality of a monolithic concrete pour without the need for costly construction joints and water stop. 

The slipform was suspended by strand jacks mounted on a structural steel head frame located over the shaft, allowing for multiple use of suspended platform, as opposed to the “one-time-only” upward movement of a conventional slipform, resulting in:

  • Pre-tie and support 100% of shaft wall reinforcing and installing all openings and imbeds including the large 14’ diameter tunnel opening.
  • Full inspection of all reinforcing and imbeds prior to concrete pour.
  • Western Summit to used the platform to install eight permanent vertical pipes and pipe supports that were part of the final pumping station.
