ThyssenKrupp Stainless Steel

GSE was responsible for designing the Stainless Steel Hot Annealing and Pickle Line (HAPL), Cold Annealing and Pickle Line (CAPL), and all associated infrastructure, including medium voltage distribution, fire protection system design for the entire site, and lightning protection and grounding design for the Carbon Steel Complex. The HAPL and CAPL processes involve heating and acid etching the steel using a series of ovens and acid baths. The procedures require extensive process piping and systems, including various acid storage and distribution systems, steam, cooling water, natural gas, and electrical systems.

Mobile Container Terminals

GSE partnered with Han Padron and Associates (HPA) to design the 100-acre container port on a prepared site. GSE’s project scope included the design of all site utilities (water, sewer, stormwater, electrical, and fire water), administration and maintenance buildings, assorted site structures, site lighting, fire protection design, and construction assistance. GSE oversaw all communication with local governmental agencies and utilities.

Novo Nordisk

GSE provided all structural design for the 68,000-square-foot storage and shipping facility constructed as part of Novo Nordisk’s $1.8 billion expansion, which was completed in 2019. Initially designed by Fluor, the project went over budget. GSE teamed with Brasfield & Gorrie to provide an extensive Value Engineering effort on a fast track, successfully bringing the project within budget and schedule.
