The company will analyze how to design, construct, and install concrete substructures standing on the seafloor to support the WTGs. The scope also includes analysis of construction methods and models for marine operations to install the structures.
The company said its front-end engineering work will also benefit several US-based partners and suppliers. This includes construction company Kiewit Infrastructure Inc. and regulatory and permitting expert McLaren.
Floating wetlands remove nitrogen from the water through the beneficial bacteria (biofilms) growing on its plastic base material and the new growth of native tidal marsh plants within that base. With roots taking up nutrients directly from the water, the intent is to use these plants to remove the excess nitrogen before it can fuel an algal or bacterial bloom.READ MORE
One massive crane lifted a slightly less-massive crane in midtown Manhattan to help construct three additional floors on the iconic building. To put the LTM 1130 in place…McLaren leveraged an even larger crane, the 500-ton Liebherr LTM 1500 – a piece of equipment its manufacturer boasts is the “most successful large crane of all time”— and 363,800 pounds of counterweight ballast.READ MORE
McLaren designed the new floor framing and walls so they were integrated into the existing pool structure and would act as one “extremely rigid homogenous structure.” The CMU block walls were engineered to have weep holes along the bottom to reduce the possibility of water collecting in the fog garden.READ MORE
Construction was completed on time and without disruption to daily business operations or traffic flow due in part to innovative engineering, thoughtful material selection, and cohesive teamwork. Today, the newly erected entertainment venue sits as one of the largest performance venues in the State of Maryland and is slated to feature marquee musical acts, comedians, championship boxing, and other events.READ MORE
“If you build it, they will come.” As COVID-19 reshaped sports for both players and patrons last year, the unprecedented 2020 World series brought us all to the “sports mecca of the South” and into a fan experience engineered to a whole new level.
Nestled between the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park and the Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium, the redevelopment, structurally engineered by McLaren Engineering Group, transformed a former surface parking lot into a dynamic $250 million, mixed-use fan paradise.
McLaren’s innovative approach transformed an existing post-tensioned concrete parking deck into a 3-level, 75,000-square-foot, steel-framed, entertainment superstructure. Tasked with designing and constructing the brand new three-level, event space with column-free, tiered seating and first-class back-of-house accommodations, the McLaren team was met with a few challenges.READ MORE

The Hudson County Division of Planning is conducting a study of six different proposals to add ferry service to and from the area in order to alleviate the county’s congested roads and trains. Potential sites include Newark Bay in Bayonne, the Bayfront redevelopment site on the Hackensack River in Jersey City, South Harrison (which sits upon the Passaic River), South Kearny (mostly on the Hackensack River), and locations on the Hudson River in Hoboken and West New York.READ MORE
A new thought-provoking whitepaper by Muangsangop Seniwongse, Ph.D., P.E., CPEng, M.ASCE, Lead Technical Marine Specialist at McLaren has been published by ASCE rethinking the specification of fixed-base and/or pinned-base columns in computer analysis and the design of steel frames.READ MORE
