Working Together and Maximizing Value.
Until 2017, the bioprocessing facility in Big Stone, SD was land locked. Surrounded by unsuitable geography and adjacent public and private land use, the facility was unable to maximize its rail logistics.
PD&C was brought in to find a creative solution for all stakeholders. By working with neighboring land owners and implementing intelligent earthwork strategies, PD&C’s project team created an innovative design for a 24,000 foot ladder track rail expansion.
PD&C’s construction management team worked closely with local authorities and railroad partners to navigate construction and finish the project on schedule.
Now complete, the new rail expansion allows Big Stone to service unit trains, improving logistics and maximizing profitability.
PD&C provided all engineering, design, and construction management for the 24,000 foot track expansion, including all access roads, realignment of existing turnouts, all rail, earthwork, drainage design and all construction and contract management services.
