Fun History Relic Spotted Around Athens

Sandy Creek Nature Center Grain Bin

Did you know that Butler Manufacturing's first commercial ventures did not involve metal buildings? It all started with livestock water tanks and evolved from there to include buildings, grain bins and even airplanes briefly. This picture of an old Butler grain bin that was submitted to us is currently housed in the agricultural display at the Sandy Creek Education and Visitor Center  in Athens.

Woodville Fire Department Update

Shell Construction Completed

This month found us finishing the shell of the new fire house, thus competing our contract with the city. We look forward to seeing their project progress as they continue to build out the interior and develop the site on their own. It will be a much needed addition and upgrade for an all volunteer fire department that services a very large rural area and we have been very excited and grateful to play a small part in it.

Steel is going up, progress continues!

Our guys have been making good progress through the brisk and windy days. All the frames and structural members are in place and wall panels are starting to go on. We will be looking at a roof before long.

 

The department chose Shadowall panels, which allow for an additional 2" of insulation verses a standard ribbed wall panel and has the benefit of fewer exposed fasteners.

When completed the apparatus bay will consist of 3 drive through bays.

Foundation and Slab Placement

The slab and foundation were poured right before the new year. We couldn't have asked for better conditions for the time of year, so thankful that the mild weather held out for us. It took a little over 200 yards of concrete to pour both the apparatus bay and the office area.  With the awesome weather we  were able to finish well ahead of schedule of the building's arrival  just after the new year. Looking forward to seeing it go up!

Building on site

What a way to start off the first week of the new year with the delivery of 20+ tons of new fire station. With the steel on the ground and the slab in place it won't be long to see the building taking shape.

Stay tuned for more updates ...
