Pie Consulting & Engineering Awarded Design Contract for Garrison Dam Roof Replacement

Eden Prairie, Minnesota – October 12, 2015 – Pie Consulting & Engineering (www.pieglobal.com), announced it has been selected as the design-build partner by general contractor McMillen Jacobs Associates (http://mcmillen-llc.com/) to provide roof design and construction phase consulting and testing services for the Garrison Dam Intake Structure in Garrison, North Dakota. The project will include complete replacement of the roof structure and roofing assembly of the intake building in Garrison Dam.

GarrissonDam_aerialGarrison Dam is an earth-fill embankment dam on the Missouri River in central North Dakota constructed by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers.  Completed in 1954, the dam was built for flood control, hydroelectric power, and irrigation.

As designer-of-record, Pie’s scope of services for the project will include the delivery of construction documents, pre-construction phase services, full-time on-site quality assurance, construction administration, and field performance testing.  Specialty testing on the project will include both fastener and roof assembly system wind up-lift testing to confirm performance requirements will be achieved.  Design phase work has just recently commenced and construction is anticipated to take place during the summer of 2016.


“This award confirms Pie’s value beyond servicing the design and construction community as an envelope consultant, but illustrates our ability to act as a design-build teaming partner on large scale building enclosure related rehabilitation projects.” – Brian Erickson, Vice President of Midwest Operations
