Wood Group begins second site work phase for new Sofidel paper products facility

Wood Group has been subcontracted by Gray Construction, the construction firm selected to design and build the new Sofidel facility, to perform all necessary site and infrastructure preparation activities needed for a manufacturing facility for facial tissues, paper towels and other paper products.

Wood Group’s contract with Sofidel for phase one began in June 2016 with site grading and stone placement to establish the required site elevations in preparation for the construction of the production buildings and pavements, along with site stabilization, and sediment and erosion control. The work took approximately six months to complete and was equivalent to building a concrete floor the size of 74 football fields.

Following the completion of Phase one, Gray subcontracted Wood Group to complete second phase work. This focuses on the installation of the following site utilities: storm wastewater, sanitary, domestic water, fire protection water, electrical duct banks and excavation of soil from building basement. The second phase is expected to be completed in October of 2017.
