In September, Contegra Construction celebrated the completion of a plant in Troy, Ill. for Nu Way Companies.

Nuway Companies is set to produce 15,000 tons of reinforcing steel or rebar annually in its new Troy, Ill. fabrication facility. Contegra completed the 35,000-square-foot fabrication facility for the 68-year-old, family-owned business – one of the largest construction material and equipment suppliers in Metro St. Louis. The state-of-the-art facility quadruples Nu Way’s annual rebar production capacity, responding to significant demand for the reinforcing product in the construction industry.

The new production facility features three overhead cranes and customizes rebar supplied by steel mills for all types of construction needs. The building touts a 31,000-square-foot fabrication shop and 4,000 square feet of office space. The 21-foot clear height fabrication area holds three bays and can process rebar on 3.5 ton coils and straight lengths up to 60-feet long. Each bay is served by an overhead crane, including a 16-ton magnetic crane and two five-ton cranes. The facility also has five drive-in doors.

Joining Contegra on the project were J.F. Electric, Vee-Jay Cement Contracting, Illinois Electric Works and Affton Fabricating & Welding Co.
