Currier & Company was selected by ASIG (now Menzies) in 2017 to complete a 20% Basis-of-Design (BoD) set of plans for the design of a 4th refueler loading position, and an associated loading pump and filter separator for the AUS Fuel Facility at the AUS airport, in Austin, TX. The 20% set of plans were submitted to the AIBA Department of Aviation for concept acceptance and were accepted at the 20% stage with minimal comment.
Shortly thereafter, in early 2018, Currier & Co., and Currier’s sister construction company, CurrierTK, contracted with AUS Fuel to complete the Design-Build (DB) of the 4th loading rack project based on the 20% BoD Plans. During the design development phase, the scope of the project expanded to include an additional 5th loading rack, and the final project scope included: the installation of (1) 400 GPM vertical centrifugal pump, (1) 400 GPM filter separator, (2) new refueler loading racks/islands and associated containment pads, (2) Honeywell Fusion 4 loading controllers, (2) Scully overfill protection and grounding verification systems, new U/G double-walled loading supply piping system, and its tie-in to the existing U/G double-walled loading supply line, (2) new catch basis and associated PVC storm drain plumbed into the existing OWS storm system, new electrical, and integration of new loading systems into the existing control system.
All construction documents were developed by Currier in accordance with the ABIA Construction and Design Standards, and ABIA CADD Standards.
The Currier Design-Build Team completing the project under budget, with shared savings with the AUS Fuel Consortium.
AUS Fuel – Bulk Fuel Storage Facility Tank 3 Addition Project, 30% Design and RFP
Currier & Company was selected by a competitive bid by AUS Fuel to develop the 30% design of Tank 3. While completing the 30% design project, Currier built upon our previous knowledge of the existing facility to gain a complete understanding of the existing infrastructure including the mechanical, electrical, controls, fire protection, and stormwater management systems. In addition, throughout the 30% design effort Currier also extensively reviewed the State and Locally adopted Fire Codes, and the Travis County Environmental Quality and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) rules and regulations as they relocate to aboveground storage tanks (ASTs). As a result of this effort, Currier is positioned to immediately begin the development of the 30% set of plans into 100% construction documents, without having to first complete all due diligence that a project of this nature would necessitate.
