International Grain Science Flour Mill

International Grain Science Flour Mill - Manhattan, Kan.

YEAR COMPLETED
2007
CLIENT
Kansas State University
SCOPE
Engineering and Construction

T.E. Ibberson Company (TEI) was awarded the contract to construct a state-of-the-art slipformed concrete flour mill to be used for training milling students around the world.

The new five-story, 73-foot-high flour mill is located in the new Grain Science area of the University. One of the challenges was to be able to design a flour mill with a classroom friendly atmosphere. The mill became larger than a typical flour mill to allow room for students and teachers on each floor. It has over 26,000 square feet of floor area and contains over 2,800 cubic yards of concrete. 

The 15-inch-thick exterior slipformed walls have three inches of insulation cast into the middle of the walls. This method provided an insulated building with no visual signs of the insulation and did not require any type of exterior cladding. The five 5,100-squarefoot floors and roof are supported by precast beams that were set and cast into the walls of the mill during the slipforming process. This procedure helped gain valuable schedule, time and labor savings. This procedure also eliminated visible wall to beam connections. 

Through past successful projects with Buhler, TEI became the primary contractor for this project. Buhler, Inc., is a milling equipment supplier and process designer based in Switzerland with an office in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
