LCS Constructors, Inc. Completes First Major Phase of Abraxis BioScience Project

With each dampener between 15' and 19' long and weighing between 700 lbs and 1000 lbs each, they were just too large to install without significant planning.

The team strategized to figure out the best location for the dampeners which was both close to the work but out of the way, keeping both production and safety in mind.

Additionally, in order to accurately plan for the installation of the dampeners, seismic models were create
