Since 1977, Crossland Construction has transformed from a small local construction
company into a leader within our industry. We’ve expanded into a regional
company with eight offices, maintaining licenses in 37 states. We’ve expanded our
subcontractor base by working with over 1,300 subcontractors to complete over
1,100 jobs each year. Last but not least, we’ve expanded on our client services.
Crossland continually strives to be good stewards of our client’s finances, treating every project as important
as the other, and upholding our client relationships as our most valued commodity.
As we look to the future, I am excited about the opportunities that lay ahead, knowing that to achieve these
we must continue our transformation. Over the last year, a small group of individuals has been working hard
to develop a strategic plan to guide us through the coming years. Our primary objective is to ensure
Crossland remains a great place to work and continually provide opportunities for employee growth for
generations to come. We have set our sights on two main goals that we feel will both bolster and propel our
company going forward.
“Establishing a succession plan, geographic footprint and structure while utilizing the best talent in the
industry” - promises to keep our core values alive and creates the foundation to ensure our culture is
unchanged.
“Consistently being recognized in Engineering News Records Top 50 Contractors by our 50th anniversary”
– provides the stability for continual growth personally, professionally, and within our communities.
Milestones like these are not achieved by chance. They require a well-defined blueprint, and this group has
done a tremendous job laying the groundwork on how to get there. We have aimed high, knowing that we
have the best team in the industry to accomplish these goals.
As I look to the future, I’m excited and confident about the impact we can have on our employees, clients,
partners and communities.

BASEBALL STADIUM
Joplin, MO— For the first time in more than 40 years, the MSSU Baseball Program
has a field on the campus of Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, Missouri
and Crossland Construction was awarded the project contract. The new $2.6
million Warren Turner Field can accommodate 600 fans. The facility has batting
cages and bullpens, and artificial field turf to reduce the number of weather delays
and game cancellations.
Additional features include a full concessions stand, two luxury suites, and a top-ofthe-line press box. The fans have an impressive view; the bleachers were installed
on top of both dugouts and the press box.
Construction was completed in time for Opening Day 2015.

POND CREEK SILOS
Pond Creek, OK— The Pond Creek Silos in Pond Creek,
Oklahoma was multifaceted project. The $1.8 million contract
included construction of four 100-foot tall sand silos, one 135foot tall sand elevator, two dump truck pits, one conveyor pit,
two railroad crossings, one metal office building, one cover
structure, and paving. Each task required special drawings
from vendors that included unique design elements.
The vast majority of the job was completed using High Early
concrete, which is a special purpose concrete producing
higher ultimate strength. Gang forms were used for all large
pit walls. The large sand elevator was used in similar fashion
to an erector set; we were able to assemble the sand elevator
in sections on the ground, lifting those sections upward in 20foot lengths. This method allowed us to cut our erecting time

were used to pre-tie large rebar mats and lift them in place.
The two railroad tracks running across the space for the
