Application Summary

    • The customer was expanding its fertilizer handling capabilities at its River Port terminal
    • The expanded terminal facility will be capable of storing approximately 9,000 tons of dry-bulk fertilizer
    • Design and construction plans include removal of an existing metal building and a new structure to be constructed on the existing slab
    • The customer had historically used material such as metal, wood, and shingles and was not familiar with non-metallic solutions
    • Conventional materials resulted in poor lighting contribution

Enduro’s Solution

    • After a value engineering analysis was completed, the customer determined Enduro’s composite building system was the best solution for this application
    • Tuff Span fiber-reinforced composite cladding and sub-structural beam components were used
    • Tuff Span translucent panels were considered extremely beneficial as opposed to light contribution from plywood and shingle roofs.
    • Enduro assisted the customer’s engineering team throughout the entire process yielding the best possible nonmetallic solution
    • The project is currently underway
