Tall Structures

Concrete Chimneys - Design & Engineering


Reinforced concrete chimneys are among the tallest, most sophisticated man-made structures on earth, and are often subjected to some of the most powerful forces of nature. Our capability to both design and construct these complex structures makes us uniquely qualified to satisfy our client's most demanding project schedule and budget requirements with innovative and cost effective solutions.

Important Design Considerations

  • Stack Operating Conditions (Wet/Dry)
  • Stack Temperature
  • Bypass Condition
  • Seismic Loads
  • Wind Loads
  • Highly Corrosive Exhaust Gases
  • Construction Materials
  • Equipment Rigging & Heavy Lifts
  • Safety Considerations
