Stewart & Tate Construction has been awarded a contract to serve as General Contractor for Herbruck Poultry Ranch, Inc. in the construction of a sustainable cage-free, egg-laying facility to be located on 335 acres in Montgomery Township, PA.
The $100 million project will consist of building four production barns (final build out of the farm will include eight total barns), each approximately 52,000 SF, and a 154,000-square-foot egg processing plant. Additionally, the site will feature a 70,000 SF fertilizer treatment barn/storage building that will use innovative technology to virtually eliminate odors and provide a nutrient-rich organic fertilizer.
Several buildings will be pre-engineered metal buildings constructed by Carlisle-based Galbraith/Pre-Design Inc., while others will be conventionally built structures.
Construction commenced the week of April 26. Herbruck’s plans to begin egg processing at the site in 2022.
Stewart & Tate Construction has commenced work on an anaerobic digestion (AD) facility in Jessup, MD, for Bioenergy Devco. This AD facility will transform organic waste once destined for incineration or already crowded landfills into renewable gas and a soil additive using microorganisms. The facility will have capacity to process 110,000 tons of waste per year and will be co-located with the Maryland Food Center Authority, a major food distribution hub.
The Sitework Division of Stewart & Tate commenced work by mass grading the site and installing more than one-half of the storm drainage. Next, excavation for tanks began. Some of the dirt from the excavation will go to stockpiles to be used later as backfill, and the remaining will be hauled off site as excess material. After excavation, the remaining storm drainage, sanitary sewer and water mains will be installed. Curbs, paving and bio-retention areas will then be completed as the building schedule allows.
After the initial sitework referenced above is finished, Stewart & Tate Construction will commence with construction of below-grade tanks and pits, ground improvement work for foundation bearing, and the base slabs for the fermenter tanks. Erection of a pre-engineered metal building will follow foundations, with all applicable process piping and mechanicals to support the facility’s operation.
This project is slated for a completion date of August 2021.
Stewart & Tate Construction has commenced work on an anaerobic digestion (AD) facility in Seaford, DE, for Bioenergy Devco. This AD facility will transform organic waste once destined for incineration or already crowded landfills into renewable gas and a soil additive using microorganisms. There are a number of benefits of anaerobic digestion, such as the reduction of the amount of waste traditionally held in landfills by up to 40 percent, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and creation of renewable energy by converting the waste into natural gas. The facility will eventually have capacity to process 200,000 tons of waste per year.

York City’s Kiwanis Lake has suffered several issues in recent years that have affected both water and park life quality. These issues were caused by increased pollutants from wildlife and upstream sources that were getting caught in the lake. The lake was no longer able to regulate itself because its floodgate and fountains had failed beyond repair. The park and its water were no longer conducive for visitors and aquatic life.
The Rotary Club of York has executed a 4-phase plan with its partners and donors to include the following:
1. Reduce and manage excessive wildlife populations.
2. Install aeration, sludge control, fountains, and lights.
3. Repair and improve the existing floodgate and protect it from future rain events.
4. Install Smart Lake Technology to monitor and alert water quality issues before they become uncontrollable.
Stewart & Tate and its sister company, Riley Welding of Hanover, donated materials and services to assist in this restoration project. Riley manufactured a coffer dam that was installed to hold back the water from the gate, while Stewart & Tate’s industrial division set up an overhead crane to lift the coffer dam into place. S&T then assisted Hydro Consulting Maintenance Services in the removal of the dam gate and cylinder.
The biggest challenge of this project was related to a protected species of herons that use the park as a nesting site. In order to not disrupt their habitats, phases of the project had to be carefully timed and executed. Work had to be postponed and, in some cases, certain features relocated so that the project could harmonize with these protected long-legged freshwater birds.

Stewart & Tate Construction was selected as the Construction Manager for this $65M project for the construction of a new Soybean Processing Facility in Lancaster County, PA.
Located on a 65-acre site, the plant consists of two distinct facilities: a grain elevator which will receive, dry and store soybeans, and a soybean processing plant which will prepare soybeans and separate them into three components: soybean meal, soybean oil and soybean hulls.
The plant will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with transportation, and through the use of waste steam from Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority Waste-to-Energy Facility next door. Compared to current practices, Perdue’s project will result in a 72 percent net decrease in total emissions. And, with plans to process up to 17.5 million bushels per year, Perdue’s plant will eliminate the need to transport soybeans and finished product long distances.
During construction, upwards of 300 tradespeople worked in harmony to complete the project.
