Felt Manufacturing and Distribution Facility

Hampton, Georgia

Tiernan & Patrylo was selected as the design/build company by Atlas Roofing Corporation for its 75,000 sf roofing felt manufacturing facility.

Tiernan & Patrylo completed the design and construction three months ahead of schedule and provided significant project savings to Atlas.

The project included a 1600 hp boiler, stainless steel pip-ing, compressed air, vacuum system for dewatering, pneu-matic wood chip transport system, paper machine line speed of 400 feet-per-minute and pile foundations which have been optically aligned.

Tiernan & Patrylo’s process group self-performed the pa-per machine refurbishment as well as all the millwrighting and miscellaneous iron field work. They also completed all process, instrumentation and controls, general arrange-ments, and process flow diagrams.
