In October 2012, Todd & Sargent began construction on eight whole grain silos and four shipping bins at the IFG Port Holdings in Lake Charles, LA. The whole grain silos are 44 ft. in diameter, 168 ft. high, have a 36,000total ton capacity and contain concrete suspended hoppers. The shipping bins are 30 ft in diameter, 168 ft. tall and have a 8,800 total ton capacity.
This project required several CMC Construction Services departments and branches to work together. Bill Sheu (Houston) and Steve Wilson (41) made a site visit to discuss the plans with the customer and Mei (Maggie) Qu (Houston) designed the project to the customer’s satisfaction. The forming material for this project was shipped from France and the engineering was a unique pie-shape cut from lumber.
Cade Cothern (41) scheduled on time deliveries for all material from Baton Rouge and Bob Dozier (45), Dan Bass (45) and the entire Lake Charles branch (45) supplied the remaining products such as tie wire, form oil, curing compound, lumber and safety equipment.
Thanks to everyone that helped make this project a success!
The South Louisiana Rail Facility, LLC and the Jefferson Davis Parish Police Jury recently started construction on The South LA Rail Facility. This facility will feature a dual truck pit that can unload a truck in four minutes and elevators that can handle 25,000 bushels per hour.
This facility is located approximately 10 miles east of Lake Charles, Louisiana, just off of interstate I-10. It will be used by the surrounding southwest Louisiana rice farmers to get product to market. This project should be completed and in service by the end of the year, in time for the next rice harvest.
This was a team effort between our Baton Rouge rental staff headed by Cade Cothern (41) Rental manager, Houston South Rentals, Bill Nagy and his staff (51), Bill Sheu and the engineering staff, Bob Dozier (45) manager Sulphur, and salesmen Steve Wilson(41). All worked together to meet the customers’ needs now and till the completion of the project.
