Ibberson was contacted by Buhler, Inc. of Minneapolis to construct a slipformed flour mill for Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. This state-of-the-art flour mill would be used for training milling students around the world. Through past successful projects with Buhler, we became the primary contractor for this project. Buhler, Inc. is a milling equipment supplier and process designer based in Switzerland with an office in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The Toyota Elephant Passage Exhibit at the Denver Zoo is the first LEED® Platinum certified exhibit in the country. As part of the project scope of work, Kiewit demolished 17 existing buildings and redeveloped approximately 10 acres of Zoo space. The exhibit features six expansive outdoor yards, three animal crossings and more than 1.1 million gallons of water for the exhibit animals to enjoy. A unique gasification plant, which is designed to convert animal waste into a power source, was built adjacent to the exhibition area.
