Concept Art/submitted

MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – Nick Kumm, General Manager of Marshfield Utilities, went before the City of Marshfield Common Council on Tuesday to give an update on the company’s progress on a new building.

The building comes as a relief to customers and employees of MU alike as the current building being used was built more than 50 years ago and is not ADA-accessible.

Kumm stated the project is going well and the storm pond and piping to the pond has been completed. Sanitary and sewer piping has been put in place. The parking lot is also being worked on as crews have installed breaker rock, drain tile and aggregate has been put in.

Temporary lighting has been put in at some of the lower levels to help crews install the concrete walls and help contractors get to work on the interior of the building.

Utilities are being installed as the transformer pad and electrical conduits have been/are being installed.

Steel columns and trusses have been put in at the building and the north staircase has the framework set inside of the concrete.

Two transmission poles had to be moved to allow for room on the back side of the building. The sidewalk is under construction and Kumm noted that the project is on-time and on-budget.
