Waste Treatment & Rolling Mill Expansions Foundations
Aristeo was awarded the Water Treatment Facility Foundation and Miscellaneous Steel Installation bid package, as well as the Rolling Mill Expansion Building Foundations. Both projects support Gerdau’s efforts to increase capacity, improve quality and upgrade its Monroe, Michigan steel mill.
Combined quantities for Aristeo’s first two contracts on site include more than 350 caissons, over 600 tons of reinforcing steel, and nearly 6,000 CY of concrete.
Aristeo completed renovations throughout the mill, along with the installation of a new vacuum degasser.
Upgrades in the melt shop’s process technology allows the plant to meet the increasing demands of the special bar steel market. Major improvements to the existing rolling mill facilities were made, including the installation of a six stand roughing/rolling mill and a new walking beam reheat furnace.
