Storm Proofing Drainage Pump Station No. 13

The McDonnel Group worked with the United States Army Corps of Engineers to rebuild and shore up Drainage Pump Station No. 13. The existing station houses 7 water pumps and 2 electrical generator sets to handle storm water flow through a densely-populated neighborhood. The project scope included:

  • Construction of a new, hurricane-resistant building with two additional electrical generators
  • Reinforcement of unstable walls
  • Floodwalls were constructed around water pumps that were installed below flood level
  • Permanent replacement of the roof after constructing a waterproof temporary roof under the existing structure to protect sensitive and expensive equipment inside the building
  • Due to the requirement that the station remain fully operational throughout construction, a temporary backup system was devised in case of a storm
  • Architectural pre-cast concrete panels make the building hurricane-resistant but also mitigate the loud sounds of the running equipment for the nearby residential neighbors
