DR Anderson installed a refurbished Stedman mill in an existing operating plant for a long time client. The existing deck was modified and reinforced for the new loads added by the mill and supporting base. Once structural members were in place, a concrete inertia base was placed in two parts to isolate vibration from the mill. The 25,000lb mill was hoisted to the upper level and assembled in place. Due to the mill’s location in the plant, DRA’s millwrights rigged and set mill sections into place by hand using chain falls.

DR Anderson completed a remodel at the Douglas County Corrections Center. This project was a phased approach to remodel 9 housing units, a recreational gym, and areas of the first floor at the corrections center. The remodel included the replacement of all lighting, interior glass, exterior glass, painting of all frames, minor plumbing replacement and the installation of new epoxy flooring in several showers. The work also included the removal and replacement of two large skylights as well as the installation of new exterior metal wall panels near one of the skylights.

DR Anderson and its subcontractor team removed and replaced the roof structure on UNMC’s Central Utility Plant. Originally built in 1919, and expanded in the 1940’s, the existing wood timber roof structure was removed and replaced with modern steel fire resistant construction. The project was completed over the summer months while maintaining the fully functioning boiler plant below. A temporary scaffold/roof structure was built in the plant to protect boilers, insulation, controls, and high voltage electrical gear in the basement.

DR Anderson completed an addition to the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Central Utility Plant. The project was completed during the “off season” for campus cooling. An existing structure housing a chiller and high voltage campus electrical distribution gear was removed. Temporary structures were built around he chiller and distribution gear as they remained in place while the new addition was completed around them.

DR Anderson constructed two multi-story buildings for Nebraska Christian College on their new 80-acre campus south of Omaha. Each building includes student residences, administrative offices, classrooms, and library space. A student center and cafeteria are included as well. Both buildings were completed simultaneously by DRA and feature wood framing, masonry foundations, and exteriors finishes including EFIS, brick, and split face CMU. Combined, both facilities total over 45,000sf.

D.R. Anderson (DRA) successfully bid and was awarded this renovation project with Metropolitan Community College at their South Omaha Campus. Upon selection, DRA proposed value-engineering options which provided in excess of $40,000 in savings to MCC.

DR Anderson successfully completed this facility for Metropolitan Community College as a link to bring their existing facilities together with a new public library and transportation facility. This building also serves as a student center with public meeting areas and numerous classrooms.
