The recent oil boom in North Dakota has increased the need for several refineries in the area. Westcon Inc. contracted Consolidated to work on several buildings across the Dakota Prairie Refinery (DPR).
Building #1: Administration Building
The administration building is a one story Kirby Building Systems pre-engineered metal building of 80’x102’ (8,160 square feet)
Building #2: Maintenance Building / Warehouse
This building is a United Structures of America pre-engineered building of 246’x82’ (20,172 square feet).
Building #3: Control Room / Lab / Locker Room Building
This building is a one-story United Structures of America pre-engineered metal building of 100’x105’ (10,500 square feet).
Building #4: West Electric Utility Building
This building is a United Structures of America pre-engineered building of 51’x90’ (4,641 square feet).
Building #5: East Electric Utility Building
This building is a United Structures of America pre-engineered building of 55’x106’ (6,283 square feet).
Building #6: Waste Water Treatment Building
This building is a United Structures of America pre-engineered building of 70’x100’ (7,000 square feet).
On the 318-acre Dakota Prairie Refinery campus, Consolidated Construction provided the design and construction of six major auxiliary buildings, including administration, laboratory, maintenance, fire fighting, electrical utilities and wastewater treatment. Despite starting design after the official refinery groundbreaking, Consolidated set sequencing in place to accommodate the project’s original schedule and cost-effectively designed reinforced pre-engineered buildings able to withstand considerable blast load and fire suppression requirements.
When the original steel erection contractor fell behind schedule due to labor shortages and weather, Consolidated mobilized their Midwest steel crews to work overtime and recover lost time. The especially harsh winter of 2014 hampered refinery construction, but construction of the auxiliary buildings was completed ahead of schedule. Consolidated was the only contractor on site to do so.
