General Construction

In May 2012, the Nuclear Energy Institute awarded Fermi 2 the U.S. nuclear energy industry’s top honor, the TIP (Top Industry Practice) award. Mid-American Group’s innovative, safety-focused solution garnered the award for Fermi 2 by providing resolve using a robotic dry ice system.

Fermii 2 was faced with the challenge of cleaning contamination from the difficult-to-reach HVAC ductwork. Mid-American Group presented them with the technology and man-power to complete the job safely and efficiently.Fermii 2 was faced with the challenge of cleaning contamination from the difficult-to-reach HVAC ductwork.

DRY ICE BLASTING

The nontoxic dry ice blasting system significantly decreases employee exposure to hazardous chemical agents and other dangerous cleaning methods. Health risks are reduced and operator safety is enhanced. A remote control robot can be used to further reduce exposure risk in confined areas and highly toxic environments.

FLEXIBLE PROCESS CAPABLE OF CLEANING VARIOUS SURFACES

Robotic or manual spray application can clean your equipment on line and in place. Removes contamination, including nuclear waste, grease, sanitation, heavy slag, and hazardous chemical agents, yet delicate enough to remove flux from electric circuit boards.

REDUCED WASTE AND IMPROVED OPERATOR SAFETY

Eliminates secondary waste. Pellets simply evaporate, eliminating the high disposal costs associated with other cleaning agents.

X-PERT INDUSTRIAL COATING

We are a mobile industrial applicator of BASF products. This industrial coating is a spray-on polyurethane/polyuria elastomer protective coating that can be applied to any surface to help protect the life of the material, as well as strengthen it. The coating works by applying a 1/8″ or more layer to wood, metal, brick, mortar, block and virtually any other surface. After the coating dries, it transforms into a seamless, flexible and ultra strong super-powerful coating The polymer coating remains flexible from -40° to 160°C, is abrasion-resistant, chemical-resistant, fire-retardant, and meets all EPA emission levels.

  • Chemical resistant
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Fire retardant (specific formulations)
  • Meets EPA emission levels
  • Anti-skid and anti-slip
  • Ideal for primary containment and secondary containment
  • 100% solids by weight and volume
  • Solvent-free
  • USDA approved for secondary and incidental food contact
  • Portable water approved (Specific Products)

SCAFFOLDING SERVICES

MAG is a certified Scaffold erector, with 10 years of scaffold erection experience. We have Scaffold Erectors with tower rescue certification and Repelling certifications.

MAG uses a Management tool for tracking labor, components, types of scaffold, cubic foot rate, and productivity.

Scaffold types used:

  • Cup Lok
  • Systems
  • Spinder (swing stages)
  • Frame and Shoring.

MAG uses this extensively at DTE Monroe Power Plant

  • Quicker to assemble/disassemble
  • More cost effective
  • Savings of 20% compared to standard scaffold built from the ground
Scaffold

Scaffold

The bottom section of the scaffold is integrated into the modular design. Wheels allow the scaffold to be easily moved, and adjustable pegs allow the scaffold to be secured in place, taking the load off of the wheels.

MAG uses this type of scaffold at various Customers. A kit can be loaded in the modular scaffold to build what is required above it.

MAG has erected and used freestanding scaffold up to 250 ft. at several customers for stack maintenance at 220 ft. for sandblasting and painting at Consumers Energy in Dearborn, Michigan.

SHORELINE RESTORATION AND CONTROL

MAG Shoreline Restoration

MID-AMERICAN GROUP SHORELINE RESTORATION AND CONTROL

Breakwaters are designed to absorb the energy of the waves that strike it, either by using a large mass or a revetment slope.

Traditional barrier and erosion control methods used in breakwaters, such as boulders and conventional concrete blocks, tend to become dislodged over time. The main reason for this, hydrodynamic wave forces can become greater than the mass of the simple shape.

The goal with a breakwater is to absorb incidental swell, reduce wave overtopping and minimize reflection. A well designed breakwater should have a rough surface so that it can dissipate energy and slow the water which rises along it’s face.

Add to this an interlocking shape arrangement and you will increase the internal friction of the natural forces and strengthen the breakwater over time. Simply stated, breakwaters and coastal barriers made up of elements having projections ensure a rough external surface and an interlocking shape.

CONTROL WITH TETRAPODS™

Breakwaters using Mid-American’s Tetrapod™ dissipate the force of incoming waves by allowing water to flow around, rather than against it. Mid-American’s Tetrapods™ also reduce displacement by allowing a random distribution of tetrapods to mutually interlock and settle into a linked configuration.

Tetrapods can be used in an armor layer or in a full depth placement arrangement. Full depth arrangements allow water to pass through above the sediment layer.

The most important feature of tetrapod barriers is their flexibility and capability to maintain their hydraulic performance even after collapse, which makes our structures a particularly suitable civil protection. The collapse is a design feature that allows the Tetrapods to “key” together forming a significantly stronger barrier for erosion and security.

ENGINEERED SHORING

MAG installs Engineered Shoring for a variety of customers and applications. Shoring can be constructed either by our experienced carpenters or installed with pre-fab steel sheet pile walls and bulkheads to fit specific requirements and soil types.

MAG follows all OSHA rules and customer requirements for depth to height ratios, and chooses the best design possible, given all contributing factors.

MAG employs:

  • Pilings with specific width, height and spacing
  • Double layer shoring
  • Cross bracing and struts
  • Walers
  • Sheathing
  • Tie Backs
  • Concrete and earth dead man anchors
