BUILDER’S CONCRETE, INC.
In spring of 2017, Builder’s Concrete, Inc. Newton, KS, approached Regier Construction with the challenge to enclose a new expanded aggregate storage bin. The bin was located on top of the concrete batch plant, where aggregate, sand, and cement are proportioned before loading into concrete truck/mixers. This project was challenging in that the top of the plant/bin structure was nearly fifty feet in the air, the base of the plant was surrounded on all sides by existing buildings and structures, and the plant had to remain in operation during the construction process.
Regier Construction was tasked with leading a team to design and fabricate the structure to extremely close tolerances, and then erecting it in and around and over the operational plant.
