Big projects call for a lot of construction materials – like the new 375,000-square-foot warehouse in Lewisberry, Pennsylvania. Our Materials team was contracted to supply 78,250 tons of aggregate and 12,500 yards of concrete for the building footers, the interior slab, wall panels, exterior concrete, floor slab on grade and grouting wall panels.
With our first delivery set for February 2021, we had to begin producing a large amount of aggregate, which proved to be a challenge. The cold weather made it difficult to use water to wash the aggregate as it moved across our wash screens. In addition, the site subcontractor to whom we were supplying the aggregate required large loads, sometimes asking for more than 2,000 tons delivered in one day. But our crew at the PenRoc quarry in York was up for the challenges and worked diligently to produce the aggregate and avoid freezing water on the wash screens. Our tri-axle dump truck drivers met the client’s supply needs, sometimes running up to 17 truckloads per day.
The obstacles didn’t end there. Concrete pours at the job site started anywhere from 8pm to 3am. This meant our crews had to work late nights and very early mornings to ensure the concrete was ready and delivered on time for the pours. Thanks to the team’s commitment to tackle every challenge, we were able to make our last deliveries of concrete and aggregate in June and July – keeping this project moving along.Categories: Completed Projects
