Occidental Chemical Corporation
Occidental Chemical Corporation contracted Barriere Construction, LLC to update the existing 50-year-old tank containment system at its Geismar, LA plant. As part of the project scope, Barriere was required to maintain the existing out-of-date system while building a new tank containment system that would meet the current EPA standards.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 Occidental Chemical project challenged Barriere to construct a substantial containment system with no safety incidents, no budget overages, and high customer satisfaction. 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. Barriere was fully up to the challenge and met all obstacles, both known and unknown, along the way.
