Meridian Energy Group, Inc., a lead developer of innovative and environmentally-compliant oil refining facilities, announced that they have executed a contract with SEH Design|Build, Inc. (“SEH D|B”), a subsidiary of Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc. (“SEH”) with an office in Bismarck, North Dakota, for the performance of site and civil design and construction services for the Davis Refinery.
This announcement comes a month after the North Dakota Department of Health – Air Quality Division issued Meridian the Permit to Construct for the Davis Refinery. SEH D|B will take on a significant portion of the project, executing grading and other site work activity that is necessary for the refinery.
SEH D|B will lead civil construction activities by refining site grading plans to establish final grades and contours. Initial construction activities will include the installation of erosion control devices, storm water pond development and ditch shaping to establish vegetation and ensure runoff will be addressed before erosive issues develop to protect surrounding areas and existing waterways.
Dan Hedrington, SEH Principal and Senior Project Manager, had this to say: “My colleagues and I are thrilled to continue our work with Meridian Energy Group on the Davis Refinery project. This is truly a history-making event and we are eager to get started on the site work. The Davis project is an extremely environmentally sound project, and will no doubt positively impact the refining industry, North Dakota and its residents.”
