Our crews worked with Johannson Architecture and Jackola Engineering on the design and construction of Tapani’s new equipment and fabrication shop. Our crews self performed the civil, structural concrete and steel erection on the project. The building consisted of a 23,000-square-foot design-build concrete tilt-up building as an expansion to Tapani’s existing Corporate Office, repair, and fabrication facilities.
The project began with the earthwork and grading to level the 9 acre site; followed by the installation of sewer, storm, water, gas, communication, and electrical utilities; A wetland mitigation and restoration plan was executed to protect the adjacent wetland with 75 trees and shrubs planted throughout the property. A 3,000 gallon concrete oil-water separator vault system was cast-in-place during the construction of the building’s foundation. The building consists of 30-foot-tall concrete tilt-up panels and incorporates wood and steel in the framework and roof. The building contains an equipment shop, fabrication shop, and a two-story office space. The shop portion includes three overhead cranes, two jib cranes and a power wash bay. The metal fabrication shop includes a large shear, large brake, CNC plasma table, and equipment. The office portion includes a parts room, 20 office spaces, break room with a kitchen, and two conference rooms.
