Utah Industrial Contractors

Utah is constantly booming with growth and development. That being said, experienced and skilled heavy industrial contractors are in high demand within the state. As a heavy industrial contractor with decades of experience under its belt, Wollam Construction is the contractor of choice for major jobs in Utah. We’ve completed numerous projects in the state including coal and copper mine facility modifications on some of the largest plants in the United States. Some of our major projects in Utah have included:

The construction of Kennecott Copper Mine’s in pit crusher:

For this project, our team worked over 56,000 hours over the course of eight months to complete the in pit crusher 30 days ahead of schedule. The process included the construction of a dump pocket for 350 ton haul trucks and a crusher surge hopper, the structural and mechanical installation of a 120 inch belt feeder, the construction of three transfer stations and the installation of 2,400 linear feet of electrical instrumentation and controls. These components together made up the 120ft in pit crusher. The plant was shut down for a total of 10 days during construction and the existing tower was relocated to the new foundation.

The construction of a coal truck shop for a major Utah coal producer:

For this project, we were asked to perform a mine truck expansion for a major coal producer in Utah. To complete this project, we used structural excavation and backfill, structural concrete, structural steel and sliding installation. This client was a returning client who we had done a number of projects for in the past. Its completion required that our team work around the operating mine site safely and efficiently.

These are only two of the many projects we have completed in Utah since our inception in 1986. To receive additional information on the rest of our work, please visit our online project gallery, or contact us directly at (801) 938-9170.
