The concrete construction for the Ajinomoto expansion, the pharmaceutical manufacturer, consisted of deep foundations, spread footings with piers, cast-in-place walls, stem walls, and curbs. The main structure was a heavy structural steel building, supporting a 10″ slab on metal deck. The structure was solid enough to allow the construction of two floor to ceiling 18′ high x 2′ thick blast walls on the second and third levels.
DCG also completed extensive concrete paving around the site for the new dryer structure. We carried the masonry block and complete reinforcing steel package for the building in our concrete scope of work. Ajinomoto manufactures amino acid for several different food manufacturers and applications.
