Kleinfelder helped Luminant Mining Company assess the structural integrity of its bridges and haul roads to determine whether they could withstand the stress of new, heavier material haulers. Kleinfelder engaged structural engineers from Cambridge, Massachusetts, with the Texas-based delivery team to successfully execute the project. Following field observations and review and analysis of designs, Kleinfelder delivered quality findings and recommendations in less than 12 weeks, enabling Luminant to choose the most efficient, cost-effective option to address increased hauler loads.
The Kleinfelder team, a cooperative effort among nationwide offices, delivered the reports in eight months – four months ahead of the projected 12-month period. The efficiency and speed of the team effort has drawn praise from the client.
