About the Project

Matalco, Inc., a prominent aluminum billet producer, expanded their Wisconsin Rapids facility to accommodate storing high quality scrap aluminum materials. Working closely with a team including the owner, architect, engineers, and Altmann staff, this design build project was designed to utilize an existing concrete push wall and its footings allowing the new pre-engineered metal building and existing building to move independently while sharing a wall. Multiple challenges included redesigning and rerouting storm water drainage through their entire 34-acre property and routing it under a city street. With supply chain issues arising, the metal building was ordered in August 2021, and didn’t arrive until almost 10 months later which delayed the completion of the building. Dewatering was ongoing during the concrete footings and foundation installation due to the high water table. The 22,000-square-foot floor required 600 yards of concrete to be placed, finished, and cut in one day because of the project schedule and specialized macro steel fibers incorporated into the ready mix. This 9” thick slab was constructed to allow for the heavy equipment use and aluminum billet storage. Throughout this, the building was completed accident-free and efficiently.
