After losing most of the liquid fertilizer and chemical capacity of their Gainesville, NY location in a fire during the Winter of 2019, Growmark FS engaged with Centurion to provide Design/Build Services for their replacement building.
The new building is an 8,500 SF fully insulated and conditioned pre-engineered metal building with new concrete foundations and slabs.
The newly constructed building is in the same location as the original building, providing GFS with a path back to normal operations. Construction on this project began in May 2020 and was completed in October 2020.
On another project with Growmark FS, Centurion Construction provided Design/Build Services in the addition of approximately 5,500 SF of structure to address GFS’s changing needs at this location.
Existing dry fertilizer blending equipment, control systems and electrical gear were removed from the structure to allow work to start. Both additions house approximately 700T of additional dry fertilizer storage, an updated control room with state-of-the-art electrical and controls equipment, new fertilizer blending equipment, and the ability for future expansion in both square footage and controls/electrical system capacity. The project was completed in March 2020.
Centurion was excited to work on this project. Growmark is a leader, innovator and a well-respected company within the agricultural and farming communities. We were presented the opportunity to design and build this addition in order to help facilitate their growing needs. Although the building construction is fairly standard, the rigging of the tanks, setting of pumps, process piping, controls and overall logistics of the product flow was the driving challenge throughout this project.
This project for Growmark involved the demolition of their existing Dry Fertilizer Blend Plant at the Sangerfield, NY location and replacing it with a brand new, 5,000 Ton Dry Fertilizer Blending and Distribution Facility.
There were numerous challenges on this project involving owner operations/logistics, multiple utility relocations, coordination with the newly constructed railroad siding, and building the structure around an existing blending tower that was also retrofitted.
Growmark FS identified a need to improve their Bloomsbury, NJ location to increase storage capacity and replace an existing, structurally deficient building and engaged with Centurion to complete this project.
The new storage facility has approximately 1,800 tons of dry fertilizer storage new receiving, blending, and load out equipment. This site had serious space considerations among other challenges such as coordination with the existing rail siding, and complex utility relocations.
Centurion has teamed up with our Trusted Partner, Growmark FS, LLC to complete another project, improving GFS’s Lewistown Location to allow them to better serve their customers in the Agricultural Market.
The project involves a 3,500 SF Loading Dock / Warehousing Addition and improvements to the Operations Office. Project completed March 2019.
