Milestone hit, progress continues on Basin Electric Headquarters expansion project

The Basin Electric Headquarters expansion project, as seen from the air, includes the construction of the West Building, which will add 91,000 square feet to the existing Headquarters building. This will allow all Headquarters employees, who are currently spread out across five locations due to limited office space, to work at one location.

In mid-July, a construction milestone was reached when contractors began placing pre-cast concrete walls for the fourth floor of the west building. By the end of the year, the shell of the west building, including the walls, windows and roof, will be complete. Only a few days have been lost due to bad weather.

A milestone was reached in mid-July when the contractors began placing 60-foot-tall columns for the pre-cast walls of the West Building.

Spring and early summer construction activities of the Basin Electric Headquarters expansion project focused on footings and basement walls of the west building. Dan Job, facilities project manager, says crews poured about 65 to 95 yards of concrete two to three days a week.

In May, contractors poured the north and northwest cement walls of the West Building basement. The total amount of concrete used for various pours ranged from 65 to 95 yards of concrete, and each concrete pour took several days to set.

The expansion project also includes the construction of an onsite warehouse/shop, located southwest of the West Building. Contractors worked on erecting the roof throughout May.
