In the fall of 2019, Kwik Trip undertook a major expansion of the corporate campus in La Crosse with a 250,000 square foot addition. Part of it was designed so the kitchens were able to produce more food. The second part was an addition to their freezer.From a concrete perspective, this was a difficult project with a strict time completion of one year. The interior floor was designed to have low shrinkage tendencies. The addition of structural fibers assisted in lowering the overall cost from a labor perspective and enabled a shrinkage ASTM C-157 of under .03% for the project.
Concrete was paved along two of the three sides of the building using two mix designs. Paving was placed with a 3D laser screed to insure accuracy. Overall, this project has helped Kwik Trip achieve their goals of supporting their stores now and in the future with new products.
