Electric Substation Security Wall
- Location: River Falls Municipal Utilities in River Falls, Wisconsin
- Contractor: Ross & Associates, Ltd.
- Engineer: Auth Consulting & Associates, Inc.
- Purpose: Wieser Concrete worked closely with Auth on the design/build project to create an aesthetically pleasing wall around the electric substation that would be secure, while still providing access to the site.
About this Project
The design includes ten 17″ x 17″ notched concrete columns with post caps and footings, stained decorative concrete wall panels with metal railings, and two 20′ heavy-duty metal gates matching the railing.
The walls span about 160′ around the substation and range from 8′-6″ to 9′-8″ above grade. On the exterior side, the wall panels were poured with a brick form liner base course, a smooth form finish center course, and another brick form liner course on the top. Following installation, the brick sections of the wall were stained to match the adjacent switchgear building.
