    All Fives Keystone Church

    WIELAND polls all of its clients after the job on quality, communication, problem solving, and budget.  Our teams often receive “All Fives” from the owner, which means we couldn’t have done better!  Congrats to the Keystone Church team from WIELAND, who got a 5-star rating!  WIELAND completed this addition and renovation project in Saline, MI in May of 2022.

    Auto-Owners

    WIELAND is proud to satisfy another repeat client at the Auto-Owners Moulton building in Lansing, MI. Renovations included upgrading mechanical and fire alarm building systems which necessitated the removal and reinstallation of penthouse level precast concrete panels.  WIELAND installed an entirely new fire alarm system, air handling unit, chillers and 120 heat pumps throughout the building without disrupting the existing workforce.  WIELAND began the project in February 2022 and reached substantial completion in September 2022.

    Pratt PM18 Water Tube Boiler

    The water tube boiler for the new Pratt PM18 Paper Mill departed from the Port of Houston last Friday (10/14) and is en route via barge to the job site in Henderson, KY. The 211,000 lb boiler will be routed through the Gulf of Mexico to the Ohio River and will ultimately arrive at the Henderson County Riverport to be picked and set on a platform trailer that will make the short trip from the port to the mill site. Upon arrival, cranes will be on standby to pick up the Boiler off the trailer and place it directly on the foundations of the boiler house. 

     The boiler will generate a significant amount of energy to be used by the new mill. It will produce steam at a regulated pressure/temperature which will be utilized in the process of removing moisture from the liner board in the dryer sections of the paper machine.

    Capital Area Humane Society

    TBT to when WIELAND teamed up with the Capital Area Humane Society to construct an animal adoption shelter in Lansing, MI. This shelter can house up to 400 animals at one time. In 2020 an average of 16 animals went home per day – or, one animal going home every 26 minutes the shelter is open! This is thanks to a hard-working staff and volunteers that donate about 36,000 hours of their time each year. WIELAND completed this project in January of 2017.
