Foundy Expansion - Webster Valve Foundry, Franklin, NHwatts 040

To meet customer demands and the lead free requirements that take effect in 2014 the WEFCO, Webster Valve Facility has expanded their existing foundry a total of 30,000 square feet. The H.L. Turner Group Inc. was selected to provide architectural and engineering design services for the pre-engineered steel building, foundation, and sand tower.

The design of the sand tower design required both interior and exterior siding to minimize the amount of dust effluent. To expedite the building process building components such as the penthouse sand tower, crane, and ducts were supported off a structure independent of the steel building to allow for building assembly without waiting for additional component loads.
