Size: 40,000 SF
Delivery Method: Design Bid Build
Project Type: Industrial

B-D Construction, Inc. provided complete project design and engineering services as well as general contracting on this project. We added just under 40,000 SF to the facility, bringing the entire plant close to 100,000 SF in total. We added 20 overhead cranes to the new and existing buildings. Detailed engineering and construction was required to allow the existing cranes to run back and forth between the new and old building. All the runways between the new and existing buildings were tied together to create one plant. By self-performing a vast majority of the work on this project, we were able to keep the owners’ costs down and completed the project in 6 months’ time.

Project Type: Industrial

The construction specialized on integrating the owner’s existing crane systems, equipment foundations, equipment clearances, and how these affected the building design loads. This ensured that all aspects of the project were considered for a successful final product and optimal flow of the owner’s assembly of materials.  The 2007 building had to be enhanced structurally to accommodate the snow load applied to increase hook heights in the 2013 project.  The bays of the 2013 addition were designed for (2) 7.5 ton hoists on bridge cranes to be in the same bay at one time.  Runway to runway span was 75′.  The span of the building in the 2013 project was also turned 90 degrees to accommodate a more cost effective and attractive addition in the future.

This ensured that all aspects of the project were considered for a successful final product and optimal flow of the owners’ assembly of materials.  In 2014 one of the existing buildings was upgraded to carry additional cranes it was not originally designed for.  This included adding weight to the existing steel rafters and increasing the bearing capacity of the foundations to carry the new loads. Pictured is an aerial view of the plant that we built from the ground up as the general contractor for the original owner, Katana Wind Towers.
