Turn-key Construction on Greenfield Sites

Complete General Contractor for Two New Agronomy Centers

Nutrien Ag Solutions was looking to expand with two new agronomy centers on greenfield sites and looking for a company to completely manage the projects. These were turn-key jobs and Marcus helped with every aspect of the projects – from the civil package, construction of all buildings, equipment, truck scales, process piping, tanks and distribution, chemical dikes and loading pads, fueling stations, millwright, and much more. 


The sites were nearly identical with a 3,600-ton dry fertilizer building, 23,680 sq. ft. chemical and seed warehouse, stainless steel tanks, complete process piping and controls, and a dedicated seed treatment and storage area, 2,880 sq. ft. office completely finished with electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and communications. Other storage solutions included a half-million gallon UAN tank with liner, 30,000 gallon fiberglass and stainless steel fertilizer tanks with steel containment dike and load pad. There are Anhydrous Ammonia bullets with state-of-the-art load out and safety along with many other safety measures that were put in place at each facility including remote shutoff valves across the property for ammonia and all of the storm water / rain water on the properties flowing to one location.
