For most people, the beginning of January is a time to sleep off holiday meals and hibernate a little bit before the new year really gets going. That wasn’t the case, however, for our clients. These three generations of farmers wanted to get a head start on the year and make sure they had all the equipment needed for the growing season to come. And since we take our clients’ priorities seriously at FS Construction Services, that meant getting out there in January and building a new grain bin.
Over the course of ten days, Nathan Koester and his team constructed this impressive Sukup 30’ diameter grain storage project. At 6 rings tall and with a capacity of 14,116 bushels, this Sukup grain bin will set them up nicely for many years to come. The project also featured concrete finishing of a heavy-duty floor, designed to be extra smooth for ease of sweeping, an axial fan, an incline unload for convenient handling and transfer, and stairs that also attached to an existing drying bin.
At FS Construction Services we always enjoy the opportunity to work with new customers and hear their stories. It was a joy for us to see three generations of family working together, each with their own experience and opinions of what they were looking for, but able to come together with a common purpose in mind and decide on the exact structure they needed going forward.
We were able to take our grain handling and storage construction experience and combine it with the clients’ very specific requirements. Once that process was complete we were able to work with our partner at Sukup to provide the ideal solution. With the design and planning complete, the construction crew took over and completed the project on time, on budget and to the high expectations customers have come to expect from our team.
With over 40 years of experience, we know a thing or two about working as a team to finish a project. If you are interested in expanding your grain storage, or other grain system equipment, you can let Gateway FS Construction Services know.
