BASF Corporation


Midwest Research Farm Laboratory Expansion


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.
