Sukup Grain Bin grain storage system grain handling

Project Profile: 30’ Sukup Grain Bin (In Less Than Two Weeks)

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. 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.

Grain storage large bushels

Project Profile: From 0 to 40,000 Bushel Capacity in a Week

At FS Construction Services we know that among the many things a bountiful harvest can bring is the need for more storage space. This was the case recently, with harvest right around the corner, when we were contracted to build a new storage bin. Luckily our team was up to the task, and in exactly one week’s time, our client was up and running with a brand-new grain storage solution.

Nathan Koester, one of our Grain Systems expert, oversaw the construction of the Sukup grain bin. At 42’ in diameter and 9 rings tall, this new structure would provide instant help for the harvest to come with a capacity of 40,000 bushels. Additionally, the grain bin was outfitted with a roof auger, stairs, and an 8” power sweep.

With our team in and out in a week, our client was able to continue preparing for the season to come with the assurance of having all the storage that would be needed. Thanks to our long-lasting partnership with Sukup and our familiarity with their products and equipment, we are able to work quickly and efficiently. This not only guarantees properly set up grain bins and systems, but it also means our clients can get back to their work sooner.

If you are looking to get a jump on the season to come or are in the market for grain drying, grain storage, or grain handling and transfer, let Gateway FS Construction Services know. We work with a number of trusted partners and employ the best in the business. You can give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for.

Grain storage bin

Project Profile: A 39’ Tall Grain Bin That Means More

If you spend any time at all driving across the Midwest you’re likely to become very familiar with two sights: fields and grain bins. From a distance, most grain bins look fundamentally the same. And yet, though their appearance may be commonplace, their function is anything but. We build a lot of grain bins at FS Construction Services. But each one is its own unique structure, with its own unique purpose, and we believe it needs to be approached that way.

Early last year at the tail-end of winter, our Grain Systems expert Nathan Koester oversaw the construction of a 21’ in diameter, 39’ tall Sukup grain bin. This 9-ring tall bin also featured stairs, a power sweep, and had a capacity of 9,800 bushels. This taller- and skinnier-than-most grain bin was designed to be used as a wet holding tank to feed a grain dryer.

Though it may not be the flashiest construction we’ve ever done, and it may resemble many other grain bins we’ve built, it was the exact structure our client needed to ensure a successful growing season, simple in appearance, but functional and efficient. Our attitude towards every project that comes our way is how we can make it the best possible version of itself. At FS Construction Services we love a challenge. But we also love the simple, every day projects that allow our clients to do their work and do their work well.

We work with a number of trusted partners and employ the best in the business. You can give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for.
