High Explosives Pressing Facility Fire Stopping
In early 2016, BGI through our Joint Venture company BGI-GCON JV, LLC; performed fire stopping inspection services at a newly constructed High Explosives Pressing Facility (HEPF) in Amarillo, TX. The customer required a qualified contractor to perform third-party verification inspection services for a randomly selected population of room penetrations. The rooms consisted of several types including blast rooms, munitions storage areas, utility areas, and general office locations. Following destructive testing of the existing fire stopping to verify compliance with fire building codes, BGI ensured the penetration was properly sealed to meet the requirements. The project was completed ahead of schedule and well within the customer’s expectations for documentation, quality, and timeliness.
