Project Description

Project Details

The Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) project was a Design/Build heavy industrial Butler Pre-Engineered Steel building, designed as a covered area to load railroad cars. The building it abuts an existing multi-story masonry building and spans three sets of railroad tracks. The train engine brings in empty cars in the north end and takes loaded cars out the South end of the building. There is a system of cat walks on the roof allowing the workers to maintain augers and conveyors used to fill the rail cars. The construction of the building was a challenge since it took place while the trains maintained service using the nearby main tracks. The working crew’s safety was of the utmost importance and the building had to stop as trains passed nearby.
