Drill Pad Design
Morrison-Maierle was contracted by Hexco for the design and construction administration of a typical drilling pad construction site. The intent of the work was to create a standard layout and drawings that would be used to estimate construction costs at proposed drilling sites. Work included development of standard specifications, structural drawings, and details. Sitespecific designs were required for professional engineer-stamped construction drawings. Geotechnical investigation information was utilized to create final designs for a given site. AutoDesk Civil 3D was utilized for the design work in order to calculate out and fill volumes and to develop renderings of the site.
