Pittsburgh’s Seventh Street Bridge

Pittsburgh’s Seventh Street Bridge

Pittsburgh’s Seventh Street/Andy Warhol Bridge was undergoing a major overhaul with one major request – custom conduit in the Aztec Yellow representing the city’s major sports franchises.

An Innovative Data Center Buildout

Tech Company Data Center

A low coefficient of friction and low burn through contribute to a data center’s decision to replace GRC elbows with lightweight fiberglass.

Elizabeth River Tunnels

Elizabeth River Tunnels

When the legacy combination of GRC and 2-hour Fire-Resistive cables was deemed unsafe, Champion Fiberglass developed a cost-effective, safe solution.

A Major Utility Fights Cable Theft

A Major Southeast Texas Utility

When PVC pole risers failed to protect valuable copper wire from theft, tough, lightweight Champion Haz Duct® conduit was the replacement – and the savings are still building.

Niagra Falls Observatory

Niagara Falls Observatory

When engineers searched for a lightweight alternative to PVC-coated steel conduit, Champion Fiberglass fit the bill – and cut the project’s weight by over 30,600 lbs.

Texas A&M University

Texas A&M University

The university had two months to replace an aging, dangerous electrical system and its conduit housing. Champion Fiberglass delivered in two weeks.

Midtown Tunnel

Midtown Tunnel

Champion Fiberglass developed a lightweight, fire-resistant, cost-effective solution to replace unsafe, non-compliant galvanized steel conduit.

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)

The fifth-busiest rapid rail transit system in the country needed a conduit solution that wouldn’t release toxic fumes in case of fire. Champion Fiberglass delivered.

Monterey Bay Coast Guard Pier

Monterey Bay Coast Guard Pier

This project’s harsh saline environment, exposure to UV rays, and rough weather called for a conduit product that could offer protection, a light weight, and savings.

Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam

Nearly half of this national landmark’s existing wiring-housing conduit had degraded, leaving a two-mile area in need of a conduit that could stand up to the ambient environment.

Edwardsport IGCC Power Plant

Edwardsport IGCC Power Plant

Originally specified PVC SCH 80 conduit would require the extra purchase and installation of expensive concrete vaults. Champion Fiberglass conduit streamlined the installation and led to savings.

Intrepid Potash

Intrepid Potash

A planned facility expansion originally specified PVC-coated steel – until engineers realized lightweight Champion Fiberglass conduit offered corrosion resistance, ease of installation, and a light weight.

Fox Metro Wastewater Treatment Plant

Fox Metro Wastewater Treatment Plant

When the PVC coating on the rigid steel conduit in the facility’s waste pits began to separate, corrosion crept in. Champion Fiberglass provided custom solutions and an installation assist.

San Jacinto River Authority

San Jacinto River Authority

When engineers realized they could create a 71% savings by using Champion Fiberglass conduit over aluminum (without sacrificing project integrity or safety), project specifications were updated to enable a quick, easy installation.
