Client: American Axle, Inc
Facility: Manufacturing/ Office
Size: 10,000 gallon, 20,000 lb custom fabricated storage tank
Status: Professional services completed in 1995

E.I. Team's engineers worked with AAM to modify and improve their existing water distribution systems (domestic and fire service) and provide engineering services for the installation of backflow prevention devices. The engineers added a new pressurized storage tank and distribution system for methanol, including containment area, for truck unloading and associated piping and instrumentation.

Evaluation of the domestic service involved monitoring the flow at each incoming water main in order to determine actual peak flows.  The result of this investigation was the consolidation of a number of service connections.  Similar studies of the fire service system led to the elimination of one of the major connections to the City main. For this project E.I. Team provided full contract documents, coordination with IRI and State and local agencies, bid management, and Owner's Representative services.
