U. S. Army Corp of Engineers Control House Manufactured by Century Group Inc.

The U. S. Corp of Engineers approved Century's precast concrete control room to be manufactured, and installed at its Fresh Water Bayou locks located on the Intracoastal Waterway near Pecan Island, Louisiana. The locks rank number 2 in the U. S. in the amount of barge maritime traffic which passes through the structures annually. The precast concrete control room featured 4” thick precast concrete panels 4” that were installed on an elevated platform over the Intracoastal Waterway. The precast concrete control room had large window openings, allowing a peripheral view of the Intracoastal Waterway.

The concrete panels for the control building were welded together, and are designed to withstand 150 mph wind loads. The outside walls featured a textured surface coating to match colors approved by the U. S. Corp of Engineers. Century Group's National Manufacturing Manager, Rob Robinson stated, "We were very pleased with the ease of installation of the panels, and it was a privilege to be able to work with Dinh Doan of the U. S. Army Corp of Engineers, and Denise Aguillard of Aguillard Construction in the development, and final design of the control room meeting all of the U. S. Army Corp's specifications.” For more information on Century Groups Inc.'s precast control buildings email the Century Group Precast Products Division or call 1-800-527-5232, Ext. 165.
