Golder is honored to have been part of Barnard Construction’s project team for the Haiwee Power Plant Penstock Replacement Project, which was named by Engineering News-Record (ENR) as one of 20 Best of the Best Projects nationwide, selected from more than 900 entries. According to ENR, the projects named represent the pinnacle of design and construction achievement in their respective categories from across the U.S. among those completed between May 2018 and May 2019.
Golder’s design effort included hydraulic sizing for the penstock pipe—including selection of the final pipe diameter, pressure rating, and wall thickness—as well as all pipe mechanical and civil design. Golder also helped review manufacturer’s calculations and documentation and provide technical support during the construction and installation of the new penstock.
“To support our work on Haiwee, Golder assembled a team of professionals with a wide range of skills, drawn from our offices in California as well as Florida, Oregon, Arizona and Ontario, Canada,” says Golder Project Leader Noah Fennessy. “Our team worked collaboratively with other service providers deliver this project, and we are excited and honored to see this excellent work recognized.”
The Haiwee Power Plant Penstock Project, located in Olancha, Calif, was originally submitted by Barnard Construction to ENR California, winning the regional award as well as being named the top project in Water/Environment category.
