Newly completed and ongoing projects

Completed Projects: 2015/2016


Advanced Welding in 2015 was subcontracted to perform welding on the JANE ADAMS I-90 Relocation Project.

Relocation involved 90” – 24” Water Transmission Main, connecting the service of water to communities, from Elk Grove Village to Stream wood , IL . 90” and 72” Line stops were needed. Also included were 48” and 24” temporary Steel By-Pass Lines to be installed and welded. All Prestressed Concrete Tie-Ins and Closures were 100% welded.

All work was successfully completed on time by General Contractor with the support of Advanced Welding.

ATS SYSTEM (O’Hare  International Airport)

Advanced Welding was awarded the contract from a General Contractor to both demo and reinstall a 1300′ section of the ATS (O’Hare Airport Automatic Train System).

This project was needed by the State of Illinois to expand feeder ramps out of O’Hare Airport.

The Project Concerns:

The north section of the system would need to be shut down. People needing to access the terminals would now be transferred by bus.

Working over I-190 and the CTA Blue line (Main traffic into Airport.) The project had a completion date of 90 days.

Our project responsibilites:

  • To work closely with other subcontractors, maintain schedules and meetings.
  • Advanced Welding demoed existing track-work and re-install new rails.
  • Installed Shielding and Fall protection.
  • Fabricated all the concrete Tie Mounting Plates, Washers, Shims and other mounting plates, in the Advanced Welding shop.

Advanced supplied shop drawings for the Power/Guidance Rails and Negative Return Rails, Expansion Joints, Walkway supports and Walkway. These items were also fabricated at our facility.

Project completed on time within 90 days.
