Continental is one of a small number of contractors in the United States with experience and expertise in performing vertical Slip Form Construction. Slip Form Construction is a valuable cost and time saving technique for casting large concrete storage and processing facilities, especially within the dry bulk products industry. In this process, structures such as silos, meal houses, stacking tubes, etc. are poured in one continuous, 24-hour per day operation. Continental has supervision, management and tradesmen with over 35 years experience in designing and casting these structures that are so vital to industry.

Environmental regulations and the need for updated electrical generation were the driving forces in this project. Continental was subcontracted to complete the slip form storage silos. These were completed simultaneously. The access tower for both silos was also completed by Continental.
