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.

Lonestar Industries | New Orleans, Louisiana
2 | 8 Slip Formed Cement Storage Silos

Lonestar Industries needed additional storage capacity for cement that would be used in the New Orleans and surrounding areas. Continental was selected to build two (2) "four-pack" silos and the material handling systems. The soil profile at the project made it necessary for all of the new installations to be supported on driven pile foundations, which Continental performed as well.
