Wheat Growers releases site layout for new facility at Kennebec
Friday morning concrete trucks were coming and going through Kennebec as a large pour took place on the dry fertilizer storage building being built at the site of the new Wheat
Growers grain facility on the west side of town.
According to one of the project superintendents additional concrete crews arrived in Kennebec Friday morning to bring the number of workers up to 70.
“We had another crew arrive this morning,” said Mike Fjerstad with SMA, the general contractor of the project. “Concrete came from Presho (Rosebud) and Ready Mix at
Fjerstad said within the next four weeks an on site batch plant will be built on site by GCC of Aberdeen to supply concrete for the project.
The dry fertilizer storage building is currently being built. It will be constructed of concerte columns and wood panels.
“It’ll take a little less than 7,000 cubic yards of concrete for that building,” said Fjerstad.
Wheat Growers released a drawing of the proposed site layout Friday which shows the proposed location of the railroad siding, circular track, the elevator, the dry fertilizer plant
and Agronomy Center. The site will be accessed from several locations along Hwy 273.
SMA is the general contractor for the fertilizer building, the elevator and the flat storage building with various subcontractors being hired to complete different aspects of the project.
Greystone Construction expects to start work on the Agronomy Center in April.
Loiseau Construction of Flandreau continues to move dirt for the project.
