Stonebrook Awarded Calf Barn Weatherization & Renovation Project

Stonebrook Roofing Inc was recently low bidder and will receive the contract award for the Calf Barn Weatherization & Renovation Project in Yankton South Dakota. The Calf Barn located on the west end of the Human Services Center. The barn is visible from the north side Highway 50 and is adjacent to the rodeo arena.

The project consists of Removal & Replacement of Structural Wood Roof components, Roofing System materials, all Windows, Doors & Hardware. In addition the Calf Barn will be painted to reflect the aspects of the period in which it was originally built.

The original construction of the Calf Barn started in the spring of 1922 and was put into service in 1924.

The facility measures 143’ long and is 43’ wide which provided 11,680 square feet of space on 2 levels for 90 calves & heifers. The building is connected by a tunnel to the dairy barn which provided passage for calves, milk during inclement weather. The barn also had a hospital in the original design and is constructed of most solid concrete wall & structural elements. The barn was operational until 1986.

The project manager will be Tom Kunkel who resides in Yankton and offsite aspects will be coordinated by Luke Stater, Omaha Area Manager for Stonebrook.

Stonebrook competitively bid the project and was awarded the project on a low bid that presents best value. Completion is scheduled for late 2013
