Just after 8 am this morning, the McCormick Construction crew began the continuous concrete pour of the slip forms at the new feed mill in Trimont. Work will be non-stop with rotating shifts until the 160+ foot pour is complete.
The process is complex as all concrete is poured into funneled chutes by hand with a wheelbarrow delivery. Overall, there are 53 funnels for the continuous concrete pour, with 27 specifically for the outside walls.
The slip will move upward approximately 10 inches per hour, raising the platform along with it. Completion of the mill should take 9 to 10 days, and once finished, the pour on the silo will begin.
