Project Overview

Corrado American provided civil/site construction services for the Praxair CO2 Production Plant located in a Delaware refinery. Scope of services included:

  • Site grading and paving
  • Rail car track alignments
  • Utility installation
  • Construction of stormwater management facilities

Key Challenges

Corrado American’s involvement started early in the project – before the design phase. Familiarity with rail construction, local health and safety requirements within the refinery facility, and cooperation with environmental restrictions placed on the project provided considerable value to the client.

In addition, Corrado American provided foundation construction for the dry ice building, multiple podium-style operation buildings as well as loading docks, utility and tank foundations, and truck scales.

In order to complete the project within the scheduled time frame, full cooperation and coordination with other trades was of utmost importance.
