Fabric Fertilizer Storage Building Project Profile

The Rundown

This fertilizer storage building contains 30,000 metric tons of bulk product divided into three bins, while the lean-to provides a separate area for loading and maneuvering equipment. Jack beams create wide access for heavy equipment.

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.”
