He tells us what’s going to happen to Building D.


NCC Heavy Equipment Operation & Maintenance instructor Roger Solberg says the building is being built using some technology that’s somewhat rare in northwest Iowa. He says it’s called Geopier Foundation Systems, and Peterson Contractors, Incorporated of Reinbeck, Iowa is helping them install the “GeoPiers.”
