FS Construction Services grain bin

Project Profile: Customized 42’ Grain Bin

One of the benefits of being in the business as long as we have at FS Construction Services is that every client is different and no two jobs are exactly the same. We have built a lot of grain storage bins throughout the years and while there have been many jobs with similar details, there is always something just a little bit different, just a little bit unique, to make that job its very own. Sometimes we don’t do much more than put up a structure, and sometimes we are putting up that structure and filling it with every possible accessory available. From the littlest to the most, each job has its own requirements and we’re here to help our clients find exactly the right pieces to make their set up work.

Recently, we got to build a 42’ tall, 10-ring grain bin with a capacity of 47,000 bushels. But in order for it to perform exactly the way our client needed it to, we installed a specific set of accessories to guarantee a satisfied customer. One of the benefits of working with our friends at Sukup is that we’ve been partners for so long, we have a good idea of how their products go together to get the best results. For this project, we installed dual centrifugal 20hp fans for enhanced drying capabilities, a double run conveyor for filling with a shorter auger, a power sweep, a gravity spreader, a 3-phase drive, and stairs wrapping around the outside of the bin for safety.

Delivered on schedule and on budget, our client had exactly what they would need going forward for continued success. While it may not have been anything extravagant and may even look like some of our other jobs it was the exact right pieces for this job.

If you are in need of grain storage, grain drying, or grain handling and transfer equipment, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know.

2 Keys To A Paint Project That Stands The Test Of Time

Paint is a funny thing. When it’s done well, it’s one of the easiest things in the world to ignore. But when it’s done poorly, or when it’s in need of some serious updating, it makes even the nicest buildings look unsightly, old, and ugly. We know how tempting it can be to want to finish a paint job quickly, which can lead to improper prep work and ultimately, shortened paint longevity.

Our paint team at FS Construction Services understands exactly what a good paint job can do, which is why we take great pride in making sure every paint project we complete is handled with the greatest care and attention to detail. The first key to a print project that stands the test of time is ensuring prep work is done properly. Our prep work involves scraping existing paint, power washing, using a cleaner like TSP or chalk remover, and applying a primer. We’ve always believed that primer is the key, not only providing adhesion for the top coat, but providing overall protection for your building.

We know how easy a great paint job is to overlook. We also know just how much of a difference it can make when it’s done well, especially in ways that can’t be seen. This leads us to the second key factor to ensuring your paint project looks great for years to come, a team of experienced professionals with a dedication to detail and quality. Over the past year, our paint team has been hard at work on the 60+ projects. From sheds to grain bins to roofs to trim to entire homes and buildings, we have had great support and feedback from the communities we serve. We appreciate your trust and know none of this happens without you.

Brian “Boomer” Garleb and the team of paint professionals are thankful to all of you who have trusted your special projects to our team over the years. 2018 was a great year and are looking forward to the many opportunities and challenges 2019 will bring.
