In years past, when the brutal North Dakota winter season hit, Knife River Corporation would shut down their outdoor concrete ready-mix operation in Dickinson, ND. Western North Dakota is currently going through a tremendous construction boom thanks to the oil fields of the Bakken. Knife River needed a quick and economical building that could be both heated and built over the existing facility to keep it operating throughout the winter months.
The solution was a 44′ wide x 112′ long Natural Light Fabric Structure DP Series building. The building was built on two rows of stacked concrete foundation blocks. It included two 14′ x 14′ conventional overhead doors , service doors and several framed openings in the side walls and roof for existing conveyors. Crews were able to complete the building erection in three weeks. The plant stayed open and operating during the construction process.
