Concrete Chimneys

More than 100 years’ experience in the design and erection of concrete chimneys.

Concrete Chimneys
Dominion Global

We have more than 100 years’ experience in the design and construction of reinforced concrete chimneys, some of the tallest and most sophisticated structures in the world.  We provide end-to-end services, using state-of-the-art construction techniques combined with our equipment and technology to provide our customers the optimal solution.



The team at DOMINION is comprised of experts for the design, construction, inspection, maintenance, and demolition of reinforced concrete chimneys for the power generation and other industries. 

The strength of decades of experience and knowledge of state-of-the-art tech­nology makes us the industry’s premier chimney builder.  We are one of the principal members of the CICIND (International Committee for Industrial Construction), the largest governing body in the world on chimney design codes.

Chimney Design & Engineering

Complex structural engineering requirements such as extreme wind and earthquake loads, excessive tem­peratures and highly corrosive exhaust gases must all be considered when designing a chimney. Whether for a wet stack or bypass operations, we select the optimal chimney design for your needs including rein­forced concrete, glass fiber reinforced plastic, steel or masonry, and with one or more flues. Various materials for internal flues are used including ceramics, glass fiber reinforced plastics or steel/alloy grades.

We select from the extensive range of lining options that can withstand even the most complex operating conditions for compliance with the plant requirements including metallic cladding, flake glass epoxy coatings, borosilicate glass and many more.  The choice of materials and design takes into consider­ation all project challenges.

Chimney Construction  

Concrete chimneys can be designed and constructed using one of two methods: slipform or jumpform. Slipform construction is suitable for very tall chimneys or chimneys with extremely large diameters, and also for projects with tight deadlines to meet. Jumpform is based on more conventional concrete formwork techniques, to build the windshield in incremental stages. We use the very latest technology to ensure that this jumpform system is an extremely efficient construction method.  Another of the key factors in the construction of structures of this type are the linings and ducts, another area in which we are experts.

Our service capabilities include the entire range of stacks and chimneys, including all types of windshields, ducts/linings and geometric layouts:

  • Borosilicate Glass Block
  • Coatings/Flake Linings
  • Insulation

Geometric layouts:

  • Single and Multi-Flue Chimneys
  • Tapered
  • Rectangular
  • Round
  • Clover Leaf

Chimney Inspection & Maintenance

Regular chimney inspections are essential to maintain them in correct operating and safety conditions.  An assessment is also required to determine the possibility of lengthening the useful life of the chimney, whether it can be upgraded or used for another purpose, or whether it needs to be demolished or dismantled.

We define the best maintenance plan to maximize the chimney life cycle, taking account of environmental and cost-benefit factors.  Our services include, among others:

  • Inspections (hot camera, Thermographic, and UAS
  • Temporary chimney stacks and bypass systems
  • Linings and interior coatings
  • Lightning Protection Systems (LPS)
  • Electrical systems
  • Ductwork construction and repair
  • Emission monitoring (test ports and monorails)
  • Concrete cutting and coring
  • Access systems (platforms and ladders)
  • High pressure washing

Chimney Demolition

Dominion is world leader demolition contractor, we deliver uncompromised service and meet our customers’ demands for chimney demolition of all sizes and locations. 

Chimneys are often constructed differently from one another and they can bring many challenges to traditional methods of demolition.  Our years of experience and fleet of proprietary equipment can overcome these difficulties without damaging surrounding buildings nor disrupting daily operations of the facility.
