October 15,2015 The Lovell Chronicle 3 Growing Bairco expands to new facility BY DAVID PECK A successful and grow- ing Lovell company is ex- panding with the construc— tion of a new facility just west of town. Bairco Construction, a specialty civil construction company founded by Devin and Stacy Bair, has operat- ed out of the former Pacif- ic Power/Rocky Mountain Power office and yard in Lovell for seven years but has outgrown the facility, co-owner Stacy Bair and project manager Charlie Cooley said Tuesday. Alan Bair purchased the building several years ago after the power com- pany closed its offices and later sold the facility to his son and daughter—in-law. The current building and yard isn’t large enough to store all of the compa- ny’s equipment, Bair said, noting that the new 10- DAVID PECK cation two miles west of A need to expand has led Bairco Construction to construct this new building just west of Lovell near the Oasis Junction. The project should be finished Lovell on the east end of the Cannery Road has 17 acres so Bairco will be able to consolidate the office, maintenance and storage facilities. “We’ve outgrown our office space,” Bair said, adding that the company hires around 35 employees during the busy season. Bairco has sold the cur- rent office and yard to Big Horn County Fire District No. 1 and will move in ear- ly 2016 to the new facility formerly owned by LD An— derson Trucking and then Warren Transport, most recently owned by real es- tate investor Joseph Cad- del of Montana. With the purchase Bair- co gets the 17 acres of land, 1,300 square feet of office space and 9,535 square feet of warehouse space. Bairco is currently constructing a 4,600-square foot office ad- dition, which is being add- ed to the current office and warehouse facility, plus a new 8,400-square foot cold storage building for equipment. Bairco is acting as the project general con— tractor, and John Schnei- der is in charge of quality control and subcontractor management. Bair and Cooley said the new facility is badly needed. “We’re in a position now where we need to hire Coat drive BY DAVID PECK The annual commu- nity coat drive sponsored by North Big Horn Hospi- tal, the Lovell Area Cham- ber of Commerce and Lovell Inc. is under way, organiz- er Janet Koritnik said this week.

It’s a never-ending battle to get semis pulled in here and unloaded.” Bairco Construction has built a reputation over the years for tackling dif- ficult projects, perform- ing projects for federal, state and private custom- ers in the Rocky Mountain West. The company was named the 2011 Wyoming Small Business of the Year by the Small Business Administration. Recent prejects have included fish barriers for re-establishing native fish populations, missile silo demolition and main- tenance for the US.
