During a routine inspection, it was discovered the decades old structures, a total of seven, required additional reinforcing. The upper areas of the silos were reinforced with steel plates, rebar, tie rods, and epoxy injection and then sprayed with 8” of concrete 4’ tall. All of this work was done while the silo was still mostly full with grain. Working in this environment, during the heat of summer, required the utmost care and use of strict safety procedures. Of all the projects CCB has completed for National Starch, this one was by far the most challenging.
This project is just another example of CCB’s commitment to serving the client and doing whatever it takes to not only get the job done, but get it done safely and correctly.
