Structural Steel Painting in Middle Tennessee
In May of 2019, the Roger’s Group Inc. hired CIP to paint the structural steel equipment at one of their rock quarries in middle Tennessee. Rogers Group Inc. is the largest privately-owned construction aggregate, crushed stone, and sand and gravel company in the United States. The company’s first of 50 quarries in Tennessee dates back to the 1940s. This first quarry was in Oak Ridge, TN, and later became the site of the Manhattan Project.
The Two Phases of the Structural Steel Painting Project
This project consisted of two phases. The first phase of the project was preparing the structural steel. We pressure washed and spot primed handrails, conveyors, a finish tower, and a scalping tower. In the second phase, we applied an industrial high-performance coating as a finish coat.
Challenges of the Project
All work in this project had to be accomplished in a period of one month while the quarry was shut down. Additionally, all our employees working on this job had to complete safety certification that met MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration)* requirements. So, our employees had to complete this MSHA training before we could even begin the project.
*MSHA is the government agency responsible for overseeing safety and health issues in the mining industry.
A Successful Finish
At CIP, we will always go the extra mile to ensure that our work meets the client’s needs. Our clients’ satisfaction is our first concern.
On this project, all CIP employees completed the training and were able to strictly adhere to the MSHA safety policies and procedures. As a result, CIP completed without any accidents or safety violations. CIP was up to the task of meeting the one-month deadline.
Working with a Certified Contractor
Whatever your project may be, you can depend on CIP to provide licensed and well-trained experts. CIP has certifications from OSHA as well as MSHA. If your facility requires these certifications, CIP is ready to assist with your project.
