KINGSTON, Ont.—Graham Construction poured a staggering 22 million pounds of concrete – its largest pour to date – in less than 24 hours as part of a $200 million project to build Canada’s first wet infant formula facility in Kingston.
A time-lapse video captures the entire pour from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. In the 20-hour period, 4,989 cubic metres of concrete was poured over 100,000 square feet of the job site.
The contract to build the Canada Royal Milk facility was awarded to Graham in January. Slated for completion in September 2019, the project marks China-based Feihe International’s first foray into the Canadian market.
Canada Royal Milk will be North America’s first and only goat milk infant formula facility. The 320,000 square foot building will have two separate production lines, one for cow dairy and the other for goat dairy.
