Hartford Water Pollution Control Facility, Dry Ash Handling Building

Hartford, CT



The new Dry Ash Handling Plant at the Hartford Water Pollution Control Facility included a slender, pre-engineered steel handling building. During a strong wind event, the partially erected steel frame underwent significant lateral displacement. Shortly after, the contractor and the erector replumbed the frame and installed additional bracing. The contractor engaged SGH to assess the frame’s condition and determine the cause of displacement.
