Stiver Engineering provided critical design services and analyses for a process water treatment facility at HEB’s warehouse complex on Space Center Drive in San Antonio, Texas. Our work encompassed pipe support designs and analysis, CMU block wall designs, and foundation designs for the operations building and the canopy structure. The pipe support designs included thermal, gravity, seismic and thrust analysis for the process piping, overhead pipe support structures, and a 43.5-foot-tall pipe support tower between process tanks. Multiple CMU block walls were designed for the operations building. Foundation designs were for the operations building, canopy structure, slabs for rolling dumpsters and a foundation design for the pipe supports.

The 341st Training Squadron, located in San Antonio, Texas, provides trained military working dogs and handlers for the Department of Defense, as well as other government agencies and allies. The squadron aims to be a world leader in procurement, training, veterinary care and distribution of military working dogs and their handlers. As part of that goal, the squadron commissioned the construction of new housing structures to provide world-class facilities for the animals.

Stiver Engineering provided structural engineering services for the design of the foundations, structural steel and precast kennels for the nine war dog housing buildings.

Stiver Engineering designed a structural steel substructure for a solar panel system and a CMU wall around the top of a 1.154 M.G. water storage tank that is adjacent to the Exxon Campus and the Grand Parkway in the Woodlands. We also provided the contractor with the structural designs and drawings for construction.

This was the first project in the United States to include a solar panel system on a water storage tank of this size.
