McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing Office Building
On February 24, 2019 major snow storms hit Dodge Center, causing the collapse of the McNeilus Truck manufacturing center office building, as well as part of the manufacturing building. Knutson mobilized to the site the following day with assistance from other contractors and proceeded with building stabilization and support, and began demolition of the damaged area. After many design and coordination meetings, Knutson plans to rebuild the manufacturing building area, as well as incorporate a new two-story office building. This space will consist of new offices for the engineering staff and facility managers, facility breakroom and restrooms, three small training rooms ,and a large two-story training area with the ability to bring large trucks into it.
Fun Fact: The team has delivered approximately 124 tons of steel to the site. This is equal to 9.5 of the McNeilus Concrete trucks that are manufactured on site.
