10 Additional Considerations for Nuclear Facilities
We Understand the Critical Issues Our planners, engineers, cost estimators and construction professionals address the following critical issues:
Space Programming/ Conceptual Design • Cost Estimating • Site Security • Structural Engineering • Electrical • HVAC & Plumbing • Procurement
1. Site security must be integrated into procedures, including on-site design meetings and organizing and staffing the on-site construction management team. 2. Programming design that meets all unique departmental requirements. 3. Incorporating design codes to meet local requirements, site design requirements, OSHA and Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) requirements. 4. Detailed planning is essential in areas, such as construction personnel parking and break areas, lifting slings and devices, welding rod inventory tracking, fire protection, emergencies/mock evacuations, material and liquid screenings, and others. 5. Designing the facility to be the “storm rider” location to withstand severe storm events. 6. Underground utilities are not always accurately known and therefore the use of GPR, hydro-vac trenching, hand digging and other nondestructive measures are necessary to identify the utilities on the site. 7. Construction activities in accordance with specific site requirements and NRC safety regulations.
• Scheduling • Safety
8. Inclusion of clean isolated power for instrument calibration. 9. Incorporation of seismic design at the NRC level for building design, fire protection and other hanging elements.
• Quality Construction
10. Development of detailed project schedule. The nuclear industry is more schedule-driven than other industries.
EAR POWER SUPPORT FACILITIES
Electrical Designs, including
e, foam and high-
generators, UPS systems, energy-
efficient motor controls, variable
nt and community
speed drives, security systems and
other specialized systems.
Mechanical Designs, including specialty piping for HVAC, plumbing, and steam and condensate systems.
Engineering Change Packages (ECP), including development of engineering and scope documents for ECPs to expedite the process and reduce project costs.
The Austin Company The Austin Company is recognized as a premier Architectural/Engineering, EPC and Construction Management firm. As a fully integrated team of architects, engineers and construction management professionals, Austin has served clients nationally for 140 years; and has maintained a reputation for designing, engineering and constructing facilities that stand the test of time. Nuclear support facilities require an understanding of the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of “commercial” type projects, with the challenges of working on a nuclear site. Austin’s experience with nuclear power plant site projects has allowed our team to understand these challenges and inefficiencies, along with the differences in culture, procedures, schedules, operations and costs.
