Project:

Midwest Research Farm Laboratory Expansion

Location:

Seymour, Illinois

BASF needed additional office, storage, and laboratory space at their Midwest Research Farm. Klein Farms worked with BASF to expand their facilities, which included a new equipment storage building and upgrading the existing BASF facility.

The upgraded facility needed to include an open floor plan with radiant heating. This required a new foundation, relocation of the columns to allow for the open floor plan, and a new slab-on-ground using highly workable, non-cracking concrete admixture.

Incorporating MasterSure Z 60 workability retaining admixture and MasterFiber MAC Matrix macrosynthetic fiber, Blager Concrete and BASF developed a jointless slab with crack-reducing admixture.
