Building New Roots
in Macomb, Illinois
We want to keep everyone up-to-date with what is going on throughout the building process, so this will be the place to check back for updates!
This picture was taken April 11, 2022. Laverdiere Construction of Macomb moved dirt around to make the area flat for where the building will be. We also have gravel in place for the parking lot.
We had an exciting day on May 10th - we officially broke ground! It was a warm one with some wind, but the day was perfect with having family, local community members and Martin Tractor employees in attendance for this special day.
Pictured are Ben (Owner) and Christy Rogers with their 3 children, Gary and Karen Rogers (Owners), Jack Laverdiere with Laverdiere Construction, and Cody Basham with Klingner & Associates.
Also in attendance: Michael Inman-Macomb Mayor, Scott Schwerer-Macomb County Board Chair, John Bannon-Macomb Community Development Coordinator, Kim Pierce-MAEDCO, Lauren Merritt-Macomb Chamber, John Deere representatives Chad Hensley and Andrew Haars, along with many Martin Tractor employees.
Drone footage of the site. Check out the views that will surround the new building! We are just under 2 miles outside of Macomb, surrounded by farmland. We are making progress one day at a time!
We had some big changes happening back in August! The footings were being placed and concrete was being poured!
In-floor heat was being laid amongst other things to get ready for concrete!
The bones of the building showed up at the end of October! Things are really starting to move along. And check out that sunrise!
