Project Overview

Owner Kemin Industries, Inc.
Location Des Moines, Iowa
Delivery Method Design-Build
Description New Construction, Remodeling
Gross Floor Area 891 SF (new); 1,317 SF (remodel)

Carl A. Nelson & Company was selected to provide design-build services for this new 891 SF Quality Control Lab for Kemin Industries, and 1,317 SF of remodel to their existing facility.

The construction consisted of laboratory space, office space, file storage, safety shower, acid and volatile solvent usage area, and installation of centrifugal evaporator.  Hazardous waste storage and gas cylinder/Dewar service was moved outside the lab space.

A gas cage was constructed of 3 ft. x 13 ft. chain-link fence and was installed to contain source and spare helium and hydrogen cylinders, argon and nitrogen Dewars, two chillers, and space for a future chiller.

This project was completed in nearly seven weeks.  The owner’s representative praised Carl A. Nelson & Company for its communication before and during construction.  We were referred to Kemin by a previous customer because we have a reputation for honest, quality work.  The Kemin project manager agreed with this assessment.
