Project Description

Since 1972, Jennmar has been developing and manufacturing quality ground control products. The products range from bolts to beams. In 2015, Big- Construction worked with J-Lok Corporation to construct a new, 61,650 square-foot industrial facility for Jennmar. The Utah facility will bring the total number of plants that Jennmar operates in the United States to nine.

The design-build project included a cement and resin cartridge facility, office space and two support buildings. The project also included a railroad spur. Big-D Construction selected an architect, engineers and contractors to perform the design and construction of the facility. The team worked diligently to ensure that the owners budget could be met and the project be delivered on schedule.

Construction on the new industrial facility was a challenge as most of it took place through the winter months. The National Weather Service recorded more than 30 inches of snow that fell in the area in January and February of 2016. Big-D Construction’s experienced concrete team worked around the clock to keep the project on schedule despite the weather conditions.

Construction on the Jennmar facility took just 6 months to complete.
