Structural Concrete

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 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.

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.

Continuing our relationship with PCS, DR Anderson was selected as General Contractor for PCS’ Weeping Water Mine Maintenance Facility. DRA has previously completed PCS’ Raymond Mill installation, Safe Haven project, Load-out Addition, Quality Control Lab Remodel, and Administration Office Remodel.

The Maintenance facility includes offices for the Mine Foreman as well as conference room, lockers, and a break room for the miners. The maintenance area includes extra thick floors and large overhead doors for servicing off-road haul-trucks and other mine equipment.

DR Anderson was selected as general contractor for another project at PCS’ Weeping water facility. DRA had previously completed PCS’ Raymond Mill installation as well as the Safe Haven project where DRA constructed multiple storm shelters meeting FEMA disaster requirements.

DR Anderson constructed two new public Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) filling stations and completed upgrades to MUD’s private existing fleet fueling facility. The public filling stations are a first for the Omaha Metro area and when constructed were the only public fueling stations between Chicago and Denver along the I-80 corridor.

DR Anderson has completed another project with the LDS church. This project was a new Meeting House for the Council Bluffs Stake in Glenwood Iowa. Past projects included the Blair Meeting House addition as well as other renovations and small projects throughout the Omaha Metropolitan area.

DR Anderson constructed this building adjacent to the existing IBEW offices and meeting hall. This required careful coordination between DR Anderson’s management team and our client, IBEW. This project was successfully completed in phases without any major interruptions or delays in our clients daily operations.
