View Our Completed Projects

In September 2015, Occidental Chemical Corporation contracted Barriere Construction, LLC to update the existing 50-year-old tank containment system at its Geismar, LA plant. The project challenged Barriere to construct a substantial containment system with no safety incidents, no budget overages, and high customer satisfaction. As part of the project scope, Barriere was required to maintain the existing out-of-date system while building a new tank containment system that would meet the current EPA standards. The job required the rerouting of storm water to a testing facility before draining since it was an active plant site, and severe weather and flooding presented additional complexities for the Barriere team.

Our team of innovative experts immediately evaluated the Occidental Chemical project site and submitted a value engineering proposal which was accepted by the owner. The agreement to construct earthen berm in lieu of columns and posts, as contracted, helped offset extreme weather delays and reduce the amount of excavated material that would need to be hauled to and from a restricted site layout. To avoid delays and overcome project obstacles, the Barriere Project Management Team recognized that there would be a need to accelerate a Supervisory commitment to safety and efficiency. Barriere’s foresight led to the creation of a supervisor leadership training program model for employees on the work site. The decision to require on-the-job employee training, a self-imposed Barriere requirement, extended beyond the contracted scope of the project to increase on-site productivity, improve communication and provide professional growth opportunities for individuals.

Stacked against the odds of Louisiana flooding and rain and unforeseen obstacles, both known and unknown, Barriere completed the Primary Tank Containment System on December 31, 2015 (5 days ahead of schedule).

Barriere increased the facility’s capacity and efficiency by installing concrete foundations and 25’ walls with soil cement pads and constructing a electrical duct bank and dust suppression piping. Because of the team’s quality work and innovation, Kinder Morgan added $2.2 million of work to re-engineer and reconstruct the berms from future phases done by other contractors.

Barriere built nine large diameter concrete ring walls to IMTT to store volatile materials. The construction required constant communication and coordination between Barriere and IMTT’s safety department. A challenge Barriere overcame was the ring wall tops were not flat and required two different sized chamfer edges and no point on the walls could vary ¼” from spec. To achieve a higher level or quality and to complete the work efficiently, Barriere created many custom tools for construction.
