Detroit Renewable Energy

Detroit Renewable Energy was formed in 2010 with the objective of improving the operating efficiency, safety and reliability of Detroit's existing renewable energy and waste infrastructure: the city's energy-from-waste facility (now Detroit Renewable Power) and Detroit Thermal's underground steam loop, serving downtown and midtown Detroit.

This facility focused on the generation of steam from the incineration of municipal solid waste.  This steam is then used to generate electricity as well as heat and cool many high-rise buildings within the city of Detroit.  This facility services the city of Detroit as well as the surrounding suburbs, consequently the completion of repairs to the facility must be scheduled for completion during relatively short down times.

This project originally started out to be just a minor “pot hole” repair.  After our review and attempt to address this repair, it turned into a depth of 3 feet and covered an area of 2,500 SF. The first challenge that was presented was the schedule in which we had to complete all repairs over a weekend, while operations were still active. As we started to get further into the project, it was apparent that our next challenge was removing all of the refuse from the “pot hole” void.  This coupled with a reduced working time, starting on Saturday morning at 4:00am and concrete placement no later than 8 hours later, RAM Construction Services had to adjust material and manpower on “the fly”, completing the project on time. With the help of the entire project team work in collaboration, everything was handled to the owner’s expectations and within their tight schedule.
