TIC – The Industrial Company provides direct-hire construction services to traditional industrial markets across the United States. The same mission the original company had when it began more than 35 years ago. Those markets include power, mining/minerals, oil, gas and chemical, renewable energy, general services and maintenance, substation installations/high voltage testing for the chemical, power and refinery industries and marine/heavy civil and fabrication. TIC provides specialized services through its T. E. Ibberson Company district, whose experience expands over 130 years, specializing in design/build slip form installations and grain handling systems throughout the world.
Facility retrofits often present unique challenges, especially when existing structures and original drawings do not match. Kiewit used laser scanning technology to develop a 3-D model of the existing Southwest Power Station, allowing the project team to identify problems before they could affect the project schedule or budget.
TIC was the general contractor for the construction of the Flare Relocation phase to facilitate a future expansion to the Hess Tioga Gas Plant. A new flare system was installed and commissioned to allow for the decommissioning and removal of the existing flare system.

Maximum hoisting load was 195,000 lbs and the working weight was 4,705,000 lbs. Man-hours totaled 84,000.
In this $480 million project, TIC and MHI are completing engineering, procurement, site work, civil work, piping, electrical and instrumentation, turnover, and completion scopes.
