18,000 gallon LP tank set

A semi carrying an 18,000 gallon LP tank showed up on site today.  Using two Boldt cranes, we were able to lift the 45,000 pound tank and set onto the support saddles.  The crane pick took less then 15 minutes.

With deer hunting comes cold weather; good thing the new boilers are here

A lot is happening on-site.  Inside the mechanical room, the concrete pads for the three new boilers were poured and the boilers set in place.  The electricians have run a number of conduits and stubbed up into the mechanical room.  The BOLDT crane has arrived on site to set the wooden roof trusses for the Care Center additions. The earthwork crews continued to backfill both the north and south side Care Center additions.
