Eby Construction was selected to provide steel erection and equipment installation service for the Coke Slag project for Monarch Cement.  Work included the erection of an 81' x 51' pre-engineered metal building with 22' eave heights. One of the challenges was erecting the metal building over an existing concrete pit where conveyor equipment was installed to carry the coke material from the pit to the existing coal mill. Additionally, Eby provided installation services of owner-furnished slag coke conveyor and structural steel supports.

This project upgraded an existing roller mill. Work included replacing the existing cyclones and roller mill with new owner-supplied equipment and modifying/raising the structure to accommodate the new larger cyclones. A new 4,000 cfm fan replaced the existing 2,500 cfm fan, which then required a new foundation for the cyclones. The roof over the roller mill was also modified to install an approximately 26' x 26' removable section to allow for maintenance and/or replacement in the future.

This project consisted of constructing a new building to house a 20,000 sf manufacturing facility, a 2,000 sf office building and a 5,000 sf hanger structure. The manufacturing area was largely designed as a Class I Division I space for highly combustible materials. The site consisted of concrete parking and truck aprons as well as electric, gas, water, sanitary and storm drainage/retention utilities. A taxiway and apron connected the hanger to Newton's airport system.

Spirit AeroSystems Paint Facility

This project was an addition to Spirit's Plant 2 manufacturing building and constructed adjacent to the prep to ship area. Due to the close proximity to the existing plant, major underground utility relocations such as water, industrial waste, sanitary sewer, electrical and data systems had to be relocated prior to starting the project. The building was a conventional steel frame structure, bearing on auger cast pilings and concrete pile caps. The exterior shell of the building was constructed of metal panels and standing seam metal roof. Inside the structure, a massive 150' long x 40' wide x 25' tall down-draft paint booth was constructed for painting Boeing 737 fuselages. The complex air handling system was equipped with thermal oxidizers to remove paint VOC's from exhaust air.

To facilitate increased production rates for the Boeing 787 program, the Spirit CFF (Composite Fuselage Facility) required an expansion of another 50,000 sf. Eby Construction was tasked with the construction of the new addition, a 270' x 190' building standing 60' tall. The building foundation was supported on 325 auger cast piles (16" round x 40' deep), pier caps and grade beams. The frame of the building was designed with a conventional steel structure, consisting of 20' deep trusses that allow for a clear span in the working bay of 200 feet. The structure was also designed to carry the load of bridge cranes hung from the bottom of the clear span roof trusses. The exterior skin of the building is clad with 16" wide, concealed fastener metal panels and a rubber membrane roof system.

On the night of April 14, 2012, the Spirit AeroSystems manufacturing facility in Wichita, Kansas took a direct hit from an EF-3 tornado. Throughout the first night, Eby worked with Spirit and first responders from city and county law enforcement, fire departments and public and private utility providers to safely evacuate the site, shut down damaged structures and supports systems, secure the site from access and prepare for recovery. Early the next day, a site wide assessment of damage was conducted and the extent of the damages in the 11 million (building) sf facility included over 160,000 sf of building structure completely destroyed, over 200,000 sf of roof decking totally swept away from structures, which were still intact and damage, ranging from minor to extensive, touching all 41 buildings located on the campus. On Monday, April 23, just 7 days later, the largest employer in the State of Kansas was able to resume operations and bring the 11,000 employees of Spirit Wichita back to work. The Spirit storm recovery project involved the repair of all or parts of every building on the campus, equaling over 500,000 sf of building structure.
