Goodhart Sons, Inc., a 79-year-old non-union ASME code shop, industrial fabricator and erector serving both domestic and international clientele, recently completed a 56 day outage for a major baghouse manufacturing organization whose end customer was an international cement company. From initial mobilization to final walkthrough, Goodhart Sons, Inc. completed the entire installation on-time, even with multiple scope additions.
For this project, the initial scope of work included two months of component pre-assembly as supplied by the manufacturer. After a short Christmas holiday, the shutdown commenced with two crews working on a 24 x 7 schedule. During the shutdown phase, the work scope included removal of the existing roof, tube sheet, ductwork and platforms with Goodhart Sons, Inc. subsequently fabricating and installing all baffles, turning vanes, platforms and ductwork.
Key to the success of this project was Goodhart Sons, Inc. ability to overcome multiple job site obstacles which were mainly weather related. During the field installation phase, Goodhart Sons, Inc. endured eight separate snow events that presented multiple job site challenges but did not affect the final completion schedule. This project completion success can be attributed to the outstanding on-site project management and field crew dedication carried-on throughout the project.
