Overview

ISG provided structural designs for a number of Georgia Pacific’s tissue paper production facilities, with designs accommodating paper machines, turbines, pulp processing, and storage.


Opportunity

Georgia Pacific needed structural designs to accommodate its tissue paper machinery. However, at one of its Georgia-based facilities, high winds and seismic activity necessitated special considerations.

Solution

For Georgia Pacific facilities in Wisconsin, Georgia, and Oklahoma, ISG provided the structural designs for paper machine, turbine, pulp process, and production buildings. Based on the geography of the site and how the machinery is utilized, three of the tissue paper machines required more typical designs. However, the other three machines located in Savannah, Georgia, required specialized design considerations given the high wind and seismic activity in the area. ISG provided analysis and design of the foundations and structures of these buildings using piling, concrete, steel and precast, and site cast concrete wall. The entire project required zone 2 seismic considerations. In addition to these facilities, ISG has also worked with Georgia Pacific to improve its process controls in two Wisconsin facilities.
