Valtex was asked to help Bartlett Cocke General Contractors erect two (2) 8,000 SF PEMB’s and install a retrofit MBCI Nuroof system to existing school building. Pfluger’s architect designed the buildings with “Sag N Bag” insulation with special clips and a detail oriented trim work. This project faced issues regarding the delivery of the metal buildings, components missing, and shortage of trim work. Valtex help Bartlett Cocke procure all missing items and was forced to work an accelerated schedule with two crews erecting both building simultaneously to alleviate the schedule crunch. Valtex worked alongside many other subcontractors to ensure that we didn’t cause any issues with piping, HVAC ducting, and electrical lines. We completed the project in 11 weeks two weeks shy of the goal.
Valtex erected a 100’ x 140’ x 27’ PEMB with 5 walks doors, 4 exhaust vents, and 4 louvers, snow guards. We erected the columns with high winds and welded them to the helical piles. Each column had to be braced with zee girts and straps to survive the night winds of 35+ mph. Valtex maintained a calm/safe work environment to complete the project in 9 weeks working 13-day schedule and working on holidays to ensure Oneok met its operation live date. Issues faced during construction was below zero temperatures, gas leaks, snow, live snakes, schedule.
