CS provided survey and design for Nucor – the largest steel producer in the United States.

Chastain-Skillman, LLC (CS) was selected to be Nucor’s sole provider of civil engineering and land surveying services for its $240-million steel plant in Frostproof, Florida.

The plant will take scrap metal and turn it into rebar, a steel bar or mesh of steel wires used to reinforce concrete. It is expected to produce 350,000 tons of rebar each year.

Chastain-Skillman (CS) was selected to be Nucor’s sole provider of civil engineering, environmental engineering, and land surveying services. CS’s survey team provided Nucor with boundary and topographic surveys, as well as a stakeout of their administration building, guard house, and scale house.

The CS civil department provided site design, grading, drainage, and permitting services for the Administration Building and Scale House/Guard House. Site grading and drainage plans also included parking areas, the entrance roadway/intersection of Lemon Avenue and Sun Pure Road, the administration office and guard house sidewalks and entrance ways.

CS obtained permits from SWFWMD, Polk County and the FDEP for this project. Construction was completed by 2022.
