Eureka Hog Farms – Hog Barn

Project Details

The space needed for the massive hog operation was over 37,000 square feet, and Eureka needed walls and floors made of a material that was easy to clean, and would resist mold and rust.

It needed to be ready in 2002, and although the original project’s schedule was six months, the owners wanted a solution that would be ready even sooner than that, with durable construction and easier maintenance for their hog operation.

Tilt-up construction was able to do that and more. Tilt Wall Ontario first poured the barn’s concrete slab, and used it to cast all of the interior and exterior walls. Exterior walls were sandwiched with concrete and insulation, while interior walls were uninsulated for the hogs’ comfort.

By accomplishing much of the work onsite, the six-month project schedule was cut from six months to only three months, and provided the farm operation with a strong and durable solution that exceeded the health and safety standards of Ontario’s agricultural regulations!
