FS Construction Services grain bin addition for harvest

Project Profile: Grain Bin in Time for Harvest

At FS Construction Services, we always like to think that there is no project that we don’t enjoy. From detail work or simply painting a hard-to-access peak of a house to constructing large commercial spaces for agricultural operations and pretty much everything in between, we are happy to be of service. That being said, as anyone with a lot of Legos and a little bit of time can attest to, there is just something satisfying about building something either from the ground up or as an addition to an existing structure, such as this grain bin.

FSCS Sukup Grain Bin Addition Increases Grain Storage

Last September, we had the opportunity to do just that. Nathan Koester and his team worked with a client who was in need of more grain storage and better cooling behind their dryer. With harvest fast approaching and the need for storage looming, we got to work quickly to get the job done.

The final product was a 50,000 bushel, 15-ring tall Sukup grain bin that measured 36’ in diameter. This commercial bin was set up with a 5,000-pound load roof accessible by outside stairs complete with a safety rail. Additionally, we installed a 10” power sweep, a ceiling fan, and a roof auger. When it was all said and done, our client had significantly increased their storage capacity and was ready for whatever yields the harvest could throw their way.

If you are looking to increase your grain systems, improve your operation’s efficiency, or simply upgrade or retrofit aging equipment, we would love to help. Whether you have questions on what the best next step might be or if you know exactly what you want and just need to get it built, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.
