- Self-Performed Concrete
In 2007 and 2008, Big-D Construction completed a substantial overhaul of Malt-O-Meal’s Plant 3 in Tremonton, Utah. Crews built an addition that housed a new office and truck shop, as well as an addition for the plant’s Line 4, which included a rail spur and bulk unload area.
The Line 4 addition is a 66,444-square foot, insulated, precast panel building with CMU masonry on interior partitions. The interior space in the Malt-O-Meal’s Plant addition is covered with epoxy paint in non-processing areas and painted with an FDA-approved Carboline system in processing areas. The second-level grain cleaning area has exterior walls of structural steel with insulated metal wall panels. This addition included an addition to the docks with the building of two new dock doors.
The office and truck shop consisted of a 21,650-square foot, site-cast, tilt-up concrete building. The office section included carpeted office and conference rooms, acid-stained concrete floor common areas, lunch rooms, and locker rooms with prefinished wood doors. The shop area holds a loading dock with Rite Hite dock equipment, a drive-thru door accessible by a concrete ramp, and a two-ton overhead crane/hoist.
Big-D was able to complete these major changes to the Malt-O-Meal Plant without interrupting operations.
