This included extensive structural reinforcements of the existing building; steel design for the process task steel; complete mechanical and electrical design for plant infrastructure, group rooms, and plant offices; a track to test for squeaks and rattles; and water-test booth; modifications to, and approvals for, the indoor fuel-fill systems and vehicle-exhaust extraction equipment.
