Croft Fertilizer - Project Profile

The Rundown

This custom building uses a solid steel frame and concrete storage bays to store bulk DAP and potash. Separate doorways provide safe, easy access to both types of stored fertilizer.

Customer Success

“The building surprises you. In the winter it feels warmer and there’s no wind, and in the summer it feels cooler. It’s more comfortable inside the building almost all the time. I’ve literally never been inside a fertilizer shed that was vented this well. Even during the summer, we don’t have the slimy floors from humidity inside.”
