TurnerCo electrical vaults specified for Amazon data center

TurnerCo products are included in the infrastructure of the new Amazon data center on Potranco Road in San Antonio. Data centers house equipment and software for IT operations and storage systems including servers and network infrastructure such as switches and routers.

The vaults were wet cast at TurnerCo’s Rhome facility in February and March. Several of the 16 vaults were specially-designed L-shaped structures. The order was filled in less than four weeks. TurnerCo’s Tim Randal scheduled production and was responsible for meeting deadlines of Big State Electric in San Antonio for shipping. Amazon  is expected to occupy the facility in early 2022.

Specially designed precast concrete boxes for culvert under 13R-31L at Dallas Love Field

Standard ASTM C1577, “Standard Specification for Precast Reinforced Concrete Monolithic Box Sections for Culverts, Storm Drains, and Sewers Designed According to AASHTO LRFD” was not enough for a culvert under the 8,800-foot runway 13R-31L at Dallas Love Field.

The specification for 84 feet of 6-foot x 4-foot x 8-foot box sections produced at the Lockhart facility required additional reinforcement to accommodate the weight of a Boeing 767 wide-body airliner. The inner and outer cage of all surfaces of the precast concrete boxes required #5 rebar and extra longitudinal wire to meet the extreme steel reinforcement requirement.

Specials for the heavily reinforced boxes included three bends and a fourth produced with exposed steel on the groove side and only a spigot. Depth of bury was 7 to 12 feet.

TurnerCo’s facilities produced 598 feet of standard 8-foot x 6-foot box sections. Shipping of products from the Lockhart and Rhome facilities started on June 1, 2021.

Oversized precast concrete boxes escorted to the Grand Prairie Public Works Training Center

TurnerCo. produces precast concrete boxes for constructing large water meter vaults. On March 8 components for two vaults were shipped from TurnerCo’s Rhome production facility to the Grand Prairie Public Works Training Center at 319 N Belt Line Road. Because of the oversized dimensions and weight of the concrete structures, the delivery vehicles were escorted to the job site.

Products supplied included precast concrete elements for one 15-foot x 13-foot x 10-foot 6-inches meter vault weighing 91,684 lbs and elements for a second vault,12-foot x 8-foot x 11-foot 6-inches weighing 76,765 lbs.
