Our Concrete Special Operations division, led by project executive, Brian O’Leary, focuses specifically on mid-to-non-high rise structures. We have merged our hard-earned knowledge and experience with the expansive resources of manpower, materials, equipment, and engineering support available at McHugh Concrete to create this competitive, efficient, highly responsive, and professional special projects division. This has allowed us to provide unparalleled service in this market sector.
The initial design for Gately Park included a precast structure for the stadium seating. To mitigate the issues our GC partner was experiencing with the long lead times for precast, our Concrete Special Ops team collaborated with the McHugh Engineering Group to help redesign the stadium seating from a precast structure to a cast-in-place concrete structure. The McHugh Engineering Group advised structural necessities, based upon the initial design, and sent them over to the structural engineer of record for approval. Once approval was received, our Concrete Special Ops team had boots on the ground and began the cast-in-place concrete construction.
Concrete Special Operations Projects
NU Boiler Decentralization Phase II
Following our partnership with Power Construction on the Northwestern University Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querrey Biomedical Research Center, our Concrete Special Ops team was happy to be back on NU’s downtown campus, reunited with the Power VIP Group to manage the metal deck concrete pours for the Boiler Decentralization Phase II project. In collaboration with Prairie Material, our McHugh Concrete bucket was filled on East Superior Street and hoisted up to the 17th floor where our crews started pouring the deck for the new mechanical penthouse on the NU Searle Building.
When it comes to supporting our clients, there’s no difficulty our Concrete Special Ops team cannot overcome.
