Project Update: Botanica Carousel

Rachel Hauber

In spite of the rain our crews have been making progress on the Botanica Carousel building! Roof glass, storefront and overhead doors are being installed now in preparation for the carousel to arrive in early June. The carousel crew will work to assemble the nearly 100 year old machine as our team puts the finishing touches on the building. Once we’re finished with the building we will turn our attention to the site and the nearly 30,000 square feet of sidewalks that need to be placed! A lot left to do but our team is moving quick!

Project Kickoff – Fidelity Bank RISE: A Beacon of Progress

Rachel Hauber

We are so excited and honored to share the announcement of Fidelity Bank’s new expansion plan! The project includes a 505-stall Car Park and 10-story Tower and will take place in two phases. Construction will begin with the Car Park, a private parking garage for Fidelity employees that will also include 17,000 square feet of retail space. Phase two includes construction of a 135,000 square foot Tower, including a large rooftop green space, as well as a sky bridge connecting the two buildings. We are proud to partner with Fidelity Bank and Shelden Architecture and are looking forward to breaking ground soon!

Project Update: Central Community Church Chapel

Rachel Hauber

Things are moving right along at the Central Community Church Chapel. As you can see, Conco crews are currently working on stone and brick veneer. The beginning of June will bring paving, sidewalks and paver work, with landscaping to follow to complete the site work around the building.

Finishes on the inside have also begun, which will include a significant amount of specialty tile and also a unique wood panel ceiling system that covers the 50 foot tall ceilings in the main area of the wedding chapel. Stay tuned for additional photos of the exterior wedding courtyard on the north side of the new chapel!

Project Kickoff: Tommy’s Car Wash

Rachel Hauber

We recently kicked off a unique project in west Wichita that will be the future home of Tommy’s Car Wash! A new franchise to the Wichita area, Tommy’s Express Car Wash is known around the country for the quality of their car wash equipment which allows them to give you a quality wash with minimal human interaction. The building’s exterior finishes will set it apart among competitors with its bright red metal panels and its arched stainless steel entry and exit. Along with the car wash, there will be several vacuum stations installed that will be free to use with a purchase of a wash! We’re excited to get this project moving and will be pouring foundation in the near future!

Project Update: ICM

Rachel Hauber

 

Our team is hard at work at ICM in Colwich, with around 250 people on site working to have the plant operational by mid-summer. Production has recently begun on the lower level of the Wood Chip Building, a large facility with 30 inch thick walls on two sides and a wall height of 30 feet in several areas. We will also be starting the scrubber, acid containment and gasifier foundations in the next month. We will continue to keep you updated as we work toward completion!

Progress Update: Viega Logistics, ProPress II and Tool Room

Rachel Hauber

It’s been a busy few months since we last updated you on our work at Viega in McPherson. Crews are currently working on the floors and office area and are starting the site paving process for the ProPress II building. Work is progressing on the Tool Room and both it and the ProPress building will be complete by mid summer. As you can see in the photos below our crews recently completed pile foundations for the Logistics building. We’re also working on a loading dock expansion and office addition. We appreciate all the hard work our team is putting in and look forward to sharing more photos as more of the complex is completed this summer!

Project Update: Kansas Food Bank

Bill Ramsey

Our crews worked through the frigid temperatures this week to set the tilt-up panels for the Kansas Food Bank project! The project is challenging due to the integration of the structural steel and the tilt-up panels. The steel and panels must be erected in a specific sequence so that the structural integrity is protected. On Tuesday our drone operator was able to catch our teams in action as they placed several of the tilt-up panels. We are excited to see this project progress! The finished building will provide much needed space for the Kansas Food Bank as it continues its mission to provide food for those in need!

Botanica Carousel

Bill Ramsey

 

Work continues on the Botanica Carousel Project here in Wichita! Steel arrived on site early on January 21st and our crews immediately began putting it in the air. The building is octagonal in shape with a compression ring and the top and a tension ring around the perimeter. Our iron work crews have done a fantastic job to date on a tough and unique project! Think about it, how many buildings can you name that are shaped like a stop sign? Check out these pictures:
