SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

Big construction projects like the Ameristar Project and the Sasol expansion are on the horizon for Southwest Louisiana and local concrete companies like Century Steps, based in Sulphur, are readying for the boom.

"We've worked with area refineries before providing them with equipment," said Rusty Vincent, secretary treasurer of Century. "So, I would think that once these projects begin, we'll be doing it again."

Barriers, barges, tombs and railroad structures are built on the eight-acre concrete facility.

"One thing I think we'll see is a lot of our steps being ordered," Vincent said. "There's going to be a need to have temporary housing for short term workers so they'll use our steps for mobile homes." 

Tour the concrete facility and hear more from Vincent on 7News at 6.
