Pace was instrumental in the development of frozen conductor pipes to prevent "thaw back" under drilling rigs in the Delta portion of the Arctic exploration program. These refrigerated conductors have become standard equipment for production wells in the Arctic.
Developed freezing points to stabilize "Quick Sand" conditions to allow deep sewer constructionin municipalities with problem soil conditions.
Developed a frozen pad to enable construction of an overpass for a new freeway system, and support pads for large cranes.
Engineered and installed a complete artificial ice system where 3 phase electric power was not available. Natural gas engine was used to drive the compressor and pumps from a common shaft. This allowed a small northern community to have an ice rink, which otherwise would not have been able to.
