Description of Projects:

The new FedEx Ground facility in Sioux Falls will support the company's expanding operations. Located in the city's developing industrial area, Foundation Park, the project consisted of working on the distribution area, office areas, and vehicle maintenance garage that totaled over 340,000 square feet. With interior walls going up to 36 ft., the Olympic Companies crew worked on interior metal stud framing; gypsum board; sound batt insulation; taping; plywood wall protection; blocking and backing for cabinetry, casework, shelving, toilet room fixtures, toilet room partitions; fire-caulking; setting hollow metal door and window frames. The facility is scheduled to be fully operational by 2024, according to FedEx.

Description of Projects:

At Olympic, we specialize in high-stakes build opportunities, so when it comes to the specific and critical security and logistical demands of working in the penal system, there's no one better suited.

Last year, Olympic Companies S.D. worked on the expansion of the Minnehaha County Jail in Sioux Falls, and this year our crews will be working at the Brookings County Detention Center (Brookings). Projects like these require special considerations from our crews throughout the course of the expansion, renovation, or specialty work. Our priorities are the safety and security procedures of the facility, as well as making sure the clients' operations can continue to run smoothly while we work.

While we often say that 'No Day is the Same' in our industry, it is our repeated experience in projects like these that allows us to provide the highest level of quality, service, safety and integrity to clients with high-stakes security and operations needs. 

Description of Project:

The Raven Precision Agriculture Center at South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD, will be a two-story facility with 126,079 sq ft of classroom and laboratories. The Olympic Companies crew worked on exterior framing and sheathing, weather barrier, interior framing, drywall, and finishing on this large building slated for completion in August of 2021.

Description of Project:

A two story Surgical Center with over 45,000 square feet of space which includes operating rooms, medical offices and riverfront patient suites overlooking the Missouri River.

Major Challenge:

With a wet spring and summer, working just feet away from the Missouri River provided the most difficult challenge.  We could not set up scaffolding to do our EIFS so we used 50' all terrain lifts to do all of it.  We also paid careful attention to any potentiail soil erosion in the area.

Description of Project:

The Minnehaha County Jail project consisted of a vertical expansion of the existing inmate dormitory building and a 130,000 square foot addition off the East side of the building. The new addition, made up of two floors, now houses several new departments including Intake, 24/7 program, jail administration offices, judicial support, additional cell blocks, a medical clinic, and more. The addition and vertical expansion has collectively added over 300 beds to the facility.


Description of Project:

Interior renovation of approximately 50,000 SF of existing ICU, surgical space, and ambulatory care on the second floor of the Avera McKennan Hospital to create a new Surgery and GI Area. Project included 18 operating rooms, 34 pre/post/pacu beds, 3 GI procedures, ERCP, MRI, and staff support spaces.
