O'Neal performed engineering, procurement, and construction services for the expansion of Pactiv's manufacturing facility in Corsicana, TX.  The expansion of the facility produces Styrofoam cups for the food service industry.

The expansion is 165,000 square feet with a pre-engineered metal building structure on caisson foundations attached to the existing structure.  Poor subsurface soil conditions required removal of four feet of native soil over the entire footprint of the building and replacement with eight feet of engineered fill and the installation of drilled caissons.

The scope of work included the procurement and installation of all the utilities including boilers, compressors, cooling towers and switchgear,and the design and installation of a new 69 kV substation that will supply the expansion as well as the original facility, thus providing a cost savings in operations due to lower utility rates at the higher voltage.  The HVAC system controls the temperature and humidity for 76,700 square feet of the expansion.
