Commercial multi-building parking and site concrete construction

It was exciting to partner with leaders in the area to construct HUB13, an upscale lifestyle community in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.   

We constructed the parking structures under the six apartment buildings built in 2021 and 2022. The structures included 10 to 16 feet walls, a lower-level parking slab, and precast deck topping. Three townhome-style buildings also required the construction of a frostwall and a slab level with the grade. We provided a flat foundation for a clubhouse that serves as the center of activities for the community. 

Kurk Inc. specializes in excavation and concrete construction of commercial multi-family development projects. We are eager to partner with local communities to expand living options for their citizens and provide an enhanced lifestyle experience. 

Reinforced slab for maintenance building

Johnson Sand & Gravel: Conquering subgrade challenges to build commercial concrete foundations

A reputable ready-mix supplier is critical to getting our jobs done with quality materials. Therefore, when our supplier, Johnson Sand & Gravel in New Berlin, Wisconsin was constructing two new commercial buildings we were honored to serve as the subcontractor with Duffek Construction

Our craftsmanship and commitment to getting the job done right motivated our partner and the lead construction team to use us to set the foundations for their maintenance and office headquarters in 2020. 

The site of the office building brought challenges related to subgrade. To overcome the subgrade challenge and provide needed strength, the Kurk team used lean mix concrete to achieve suitable sub-base strength. 

The maintenance building required a thickened edge slab with reinforced column footings. The office building is a traditional wood framed building on a 48″ frostwall.

Interior Concrete Flatwork for Commercial Concrete Slab Pour at Floor and Decor

Excavation and Concrete Flatwork for Commerical Renovation Project

Kurk, Inc. removed and replaced 75,000 square feet of 6” concrete flatwork of an interior slab as well as miscellaneous site concrete at the Floor & Decor commercial development project in Brookfield, Wisconsin in 2017. 

As the excavation and concrete subcontractor for Horizon Retail Construction, we removed the existing interior slab because it was poured at varying levels of thickness, which did not meet requirements. 

Our excavation crew removed areas of the existing slab, regraded the subgrade to provide a level stone surface and prepared the area for our flatwork crew team to install a new concrete slab. 

View the carousel of pictures to review the process, including highlights from pour number three of over 15,000 square feet and about 300 cubic yards of concrete dispatched from Gleason Redi-Mix, Norway Plant.

Community State Bank Phase II: Drive-thru canopy

We couldn’t be happier to be back at Community State Bank working on the excavation and concrete for their new drive-through window canopy. We helped with the construction of the main office at 1500 Main Street, Union Grove, WI in 1998 and  have been chosen to help with the update and renovation.

Duffek Construction has partnered with the team at Kurk, Inc. and Community State Bank to construct the drive through canopy on the South side of the building.

The new drive through canopy will consist of two teller lanes and a night deposit/ATM lane. Kurk, Inc. will be removing some of the existing parking lot on the South side of the existing building in order to excavate for the canopy drive through foundations. In addition to the canopy foundations, we will be restoring the parking lot and site by adding some concrete curbs and sidewalk at Community State Bank. Visit the Community State Bank website or Facebook for more information about their addition and renovation.

We started the Community State Bank Drive Through Canopy in early November. The first day consisted of saw cutting and removing some of the existing parking lot pavement in order to excavate for the canopy foundation.
