A large and significant majority of the plant site development is now complete.
Delivery and assembly of the double tee bed forms, which began September 17, is at least two- (2) weeks ahead of schedule. The Hamilton Form Company deserves special recognition as having been instrumental in beating everyone’s schedule.
Our overall plant “go live” date for the entire plant remains at Tuesday, October 8.
Erection of the Plant Services Building (“PSB”) is scheduled for early October. All of the foundation and slab on grade work is now complete. The PSB is where all reinforcing steel fabrication, metal shape fabrication, carpentry work and equipment maintenance work is undertaken.
Equipment deliveries are occurring almost daily. Our first gantry crane has been erected and is ready for use. The second gantry crane has been delivered and in the process of being erected. The gantry cranes are the backbone of the plant operations and play a role in everything from pre-production placement of reinforcing steel to finished product storage to product loading.
As we continue to develop strategic relationships with select vendors we are pleased to communicate the overwhelming positive response from the marketplace.
That being stated, our upstream marketing and sales success for 2014 projects is such that we are already planning the Phase 2 Development and Expansion of the plant.
This will begin in early January, 2014 and should be complete by the end of April.
