DUKE ENERGY -ASH HANDLING EPC PROJECT
Location: Terrell, North Carolina
Owner: Duke Energy
Completion: December 2004
Crowder's Industrial Division gained the respect of the prestigious Duke organization with their " superior performance " on the design-build project for an Ash Handling System Upgrade. The $16.1 million project met the client's budget and schedule requirements entirely. Our management and craftsmen team used innovative construction techniques including "slip form construction" of two 50-foot diameter by 95-foot tall concrete ash storage silo, installation of new ash conveying piping, and updating the control system. Special challenges were encountered with the incorporation of an existing Reliance system into the new Ovation System. Our construction team developed logic, graphics, and Boolean language for input into the new Ovation System. In addition, grounding and lightning protection systems were installed for the entire system. With the success of this project and our continual commitment to excellence, Crowder Industrial will have future opportunities to work as the preferred contractor to "superior clients" such as Duke Energy.
Johnston County Water Treatment Plant Expansion
Location: Johnston County, North Carolina
Owner: Department of Public Johnston County, NC
Completion: November 2003
The Johnston County WTP expansion is the first design-build municipal water treatment project in the state of North Carolina. Crowder was selected to construct this project because of our working knowledge of this delivery method and self-perform ability of electrical and instrumentation trades.
The $4 million plant expansion increases the capacity of the facility from 5.2 MGD to 8.0 MGD. The project design included four new cluster filters, weir box, mechanical piping, ClariCone style clarifiers, transfer pumping station, raw water pump, high service pump, intake screen expansion and control building expansion. In addition, Crowder installed extensive electrical and control improvements in addition to instrumentation devices, power modifications and installation of a new variable frequency drive.
Canton WWTP Upgrade
Location: Canton, GA
Owner: City of Canton
Completion: July 2004

Haywood County Bridge Replacements
Crowder Construction's Bridge & Highway Division was awarded a $3.8 million design-build contract in December 2004 to replace 2 bridges in Haywood County which were closed after the hurricanes in the fall of 2003. Crowder and it's engineering firm were able to obtain this public bid contract through simplified engineering which allowed us to meet or exceed all of the NCDOT's construction and environmental concerns to replace the two structures in highly sensitive ecological environments. Construction started in April 2005, the first bridge was open in October 2005, and the second bridge is scheduled to be open to traffic by May 2006.
