Gateway FS Construction Service grain systems

Project Profile: 24,800 Bushel Grain Bin Just in Time

At FS Construction Services, we have experience with all kinds of different projects. From large, demanding, commercial projects to those requiring more routine maintenance work, we’ve pretty much seen it all. There are times when our team needs to be on site for weeks, building, installing, and training. Regardless of the duration or the type of project we are assisting customers with, we are all about planning our work… and working that plan.

This was the case recently on a brand-new grain bin project. We worked closely with our customer in the evaluation of their needs, recommendation of the right system to accomplish those needs and then planning and executing the installation. Working with proper lead time, our team was able to complete the project and have it up and running in time for harvest. The 7-ring Sukup grain bin has a storage capacity of 24,800 bushels, an 8” power sweep, an axial fan, and stairs around the outside of the bin for safety and convenience. Additionally, we installed a Gravity Grain Spreader, which not only provides uniform grain distribution, but also requires less maintenance overall, and Hawk Cut flooring, which is twice as strong as smooth-bin floors.

Our team, led by Nathan Koester, was quick to get to work on this large structure, making sure all the new equipment was installed and ready to go by the time our team rolled out. Our client was ready to go into harvest with everything they needed for a successful year. Thanks in large part to our long-lasting partnership with Sukup, our team is able to work quickly and efficiently with their equipment and buildings, allowing us to execute a well-planned construction project.
