This project included 1.6-million cubic yards of earthwork with 900,000 cubic yards of rock excavation to prepare the site, followed by a 1 million square feet of parts building and 1 million square feet of whole goods building constructed simultaneously.
Concrete Strategies was selected to provide the tilt-up concrete for the 2,000,000-square-foot project for Kubota in Edgerton, Kansas. This included 1.6-million cubic yards of earthwork with 900,000-cubic-yards of rock excavation to prepare the site, followed by a 1 million-square-feet of parts building and 1 million-square-feet of whole goods building constructed simultaneously.
The massive site required over 1.6 million cubic yards of earthwork activities, which consisted of over 900,000 cubic yards of rock excavation. Clayco developed an onsite rock blasting, removal, and crushing program to facilitate the use of onsite materials and reduce the need for imported aggregate. Multiple crushing operations were set up to process rock for fill material as well as aggregate base beneath the slab and paving.
Following the site development, Clayco designed and built two 1 million-square-foot facilities simultaneously, along with the parking and site traffic needs for Kubota to operate the facility. The buildings were constructed using cast onsite concrete tilt up wall panels, and a conventional steel skeleton. All concrete for the project was provided by Concrete Strategies’ onsite ready mix plant.
Through the use of aggressive site development approach, rock blasting program and self performed ready mix program, this project was delivered to Kubota in 14 months.
