For more than a century, PULLMAN has provided economical solutions that help owners construct new, or adapt existing, chimneys, silos, and stacks to meet the requirements of advanced operating conditions and stringent safety regulations—and that are both fully operational and structurally sound.
With the construction of PULLMAN’s first 100-foot-high radial brick chimney at a coal-fired power plant in 1902, we established ourselves as a specialty contractor that knew how to tackle the tough jobs. More than a century later, PULLMAN continues to be one of the leading designers and builders of reinforced concrete chimneys, stacks, buildings cores, observation towers, silos, and more.
Whether you are building a new structure, or planning to modify, repair, or demolish an existing one, PULLMAN’s track record and experience provides owners with a reliable source for technology-driven, turnkey solutions that incorporate our specialty contracting and in-house engineering capabilities.
PULLMAN's in-house engineering specialists design your structure by meshing geographic, geophysical, and thermal data with factors such as loads, operating conditions, wind, seismic, and thermal stresses. We work directly with project teams on liner system selection, material science, and mechanical and electrical integration. Additionally, PULLMAN provides complete design and installation of:
When it comes to installation, PULLMAN has developed and deployed the latest technologies for tall concrete construction. For both new construction and repairs, our elaborate framework and rigging systems integrate access, safety controls, and specialty lifting equipment to bring crews, steel, and concrete to incredible heights. Our engineers are active in the development of international design codes through committees of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and International Committee on Industrial Chimneys (CICIND).
PULLMAN seamlessly integrates with project teams to preplan all aspects of a project. From early design and constructability analysis through project sequencing and safety planning, PULLMAN is ready with the workforce you need. We research, evaluate, and plan for all the factors that will affect the design and construction. Once the column configuration and lining type has been determined, designs are carefully reviewed again to find the most functional construction process for the lowest price.
By leveraging PULLMAN’s in-house engineering capabilities, and through other strategic alliances with design professionals, we can provide customers with turnkey, value-added, Investigate-Design-Build solutions for tall reinforced concrete infrastructure projects.
Turnkey services typically start with a comprehensive evaluation of the current conditions and needed upgrade. The findings of such an evaluation allow us to consider various alternatives, and ultimately lead to the selection and design of solutions that are most appropriate for the project. Design work may incorporate one or more of a wide range of STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES’ proprietary products.
The up-front determination of the total cost of the solution, including the construction or repair of the system, is provided through PULLMAN. Likewise, our experienced and knowledgeable crews have been trained to handle the installation of engineered products and materials and quality control oversight. This turnkey approach to the project means that PULLMAN is able to provide a seamless experience to customers—from initial design through installation with single-source responsibility.
