Stephens & Smith Foundations and Flatwork Divisions recently completed work on the Home2 Suites extended stay hotel in West Omaha. The project, which began in December 2017, entailed nearly 30,000 square feet of 20-inch-thick formed walls and 900 cubic yards of concrete. It also required eight concrete pours, with two being post-tensioned slabs. “The project required multiple mobilizations of equipment and manpower because of the tight site, elevated concrete and post-tensioning,” Project Manager Steve Estep said.
