Excellence in Construction

ARGOS HARLEYVILLE – CLINKER COOLER BAG FILTER

Lee Mechanical Contractors, Inc.
HARLEYVILLE, SC

Lee Mechanical was contracted for the installation of a new clinker cooler filter bag house at the Argos Harleyville cement plant. The plant had to upgrade their current exhaust system to meet the new emissions standards set by the NESHAP section of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Air Act. The project started in early March of 2016 and had to be on line by the end of the year. The project consisted of a new structure for the baghouse to sit on, new duct work that would tie into the existing system and a new exhaust stack to release the emissions. Lee Mechanical was also contracted for the fabrication and supply of the process duct work and the structural steel. The baghouse parts and components were supplied by Shoych Scheuch, a baghouse supply company based in Austria.

CENTER ETHANOL, 9 COOLING TOWER INSTALL

American Boiler & Mechanical
SAUGET, IL

Center Ethanol’s plant in Illinois is operational about 350 days per year on a 24 hour basis. The plant produces approximately 54 million gallons of ethanol per year. In May of 2017, Center Ethanol started discussions for installing nine new cooling towers to take the place of the existing seven that were at one time running the plant. Over time they had lost four of the seven towers and were running on only three which were leaking excessively in the work area creating wet and dangerous work conditions. Additionally, the new 9 towers would not fit in the existing space of the original 7 so a tower reconfiguration was required without
any changes to the contract. Due to the worksite conditions the only good place to work was a parking lot 1⁄4 mile away. This became the staging area for all deliveries and main piping work. Given less than eight weeks to complete 2,779 man hours’ worth of work, American Boiler and Mechanical was able to overcome material, site work, and build out challenges to be ready two days ahead of schedule.

COSENTINOS MARKET AT BLUHAWK

Fogel-Anderson Construction Co.
OVERLAND PARK, KS

The Cosentinos Market at Bluhawk anchors the first phase of the Bluhawk mixed use development in Overland Park. The project was developed by Price Brothers as a Build-to- Suit for Cosentinos and Associated Wholesale Grocers. The new store is the nicest grocery store ever built in the Kansas City market, with high end finishes throughout the store that define the individual sections of the market. Fogel-Anderson Construction worked closely with Slaggie Architects to match the exterior to the store the other retail buildings that make up the Bluhawk Marketplace. The interior layout of the store had to match the changing shopping patterns of Cosentinos’ customers while establishing a high standard of finish for the rest of the Bluhawk mixed-use development.

JOURNEY CHURCH INTERNATIONAL

Fogel-Anderson Construction Co.
LEE’S SUMMIT, MO

The Journey Church International project illustrates the advantage of engaging the Contractor and the Architect early in the design process in order to achieve the goals of the Owner.
The Fogel-Anderson Construction team was engaged by Journey Church to work with the Mantel-Teter Architecture team early in the design phase in order to ensure that the new church encapsulated all of the space requirements that would serve the needs of the growing congregation in a beautiful facility that meets their budget. The new church was designed and built to meet all of those goals. The design also allows for future expansion as the congregation grows.

The five-story structure features a simulation center, mock exam rooms, classrooms, and spaces for hands on learning. The school features a unique “building-inside-a-building” design and a glass sky bridge that connects the Health Education Building to the south part of campus. Due to the sheer size of glass used throughout the project, JPI implemented numerous innovative engineering controls in order to help set glass more efficiently and ergonomically, including investing in a SmartLift machine to manually lift and set glass.

of four-lane freeway and the creation of more than 300 acres of new wetlands. The freeway realigned the existing K-10 highway, alleviated congestion on the streets of Lawrence, and created a southern bypass loop around the City. The Emery Sapp & Sons (ESS) team was challenged by extreme geotechnical conditions and rigorous schedule and production level requirements. ESS developed an unparalleled combination of resources, technology and eco-conscious production innovations to overcome such challenges. Within a span of 3 years, ESS constructed 21 bridges, 22 reinforced boxed culverts, moved nearly 4 million cubic yards of earth, stabilized more than 750,000 cubic yards of earth, and paved half a million square yards of concrete to deliver above, and beyond, expectations. The new $138 million freeway was the largest single project in KDOT’s history and is projected to create a regional economic benefit that could reach $4 billion.

UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI COLUMBIA SOFTBALL STADIUM

Thermaltech, Inc.
COLUMBIA, MO

Thermaltech, Inc. was contracted by ABC member, J. Louis Crum Corporation of Columbia, Missouri to self-perform the insulation work on all plumbing and HVAC systems as well as equipment for the New Softball Stadium at the University of Missouri Columbia. The 17.5 million dollar stadium replaced the existing 35 year old stadium. Due to the accelerated work schedule, Thermaltech was required to complete over 90% of its contracted work in two months. Winter weather, elevated working platforms, and multiple trades working in close proximity were only a few challenges Thermaltech overcame. Materials had to be ordered prior to field verification to ensure they would arrive in time. Change orders were issued throughout the project increasing the scope of work, but no additional time was granted. An experienced superintendent with a clear vision of the project was able to continuously adjust manpower and complete the project on time and under budget.
