Marcus Construction designed and constructed a 100' x 120' pre-engineered metal chemical storage warehouse in 2017 and then a 6,782 ton dry fertilizer storage building in 2022 for SilverEdge. The chemical warehouse has two drive-thru lanes with a raised control room between the lanes, a truck loading dock, secondary chemical containment, and is completely insulated. From the pre-planning stages, through design and construction this chemical warehouse moved rapidly and was completed in a seven-month timeframe.
The dry fertilizer storage building uses Ranco's declining weight blend system and includes four macro bins and two micro bins. There is both a covered receiving and loadout along with a variety of unique features throughout the dry storage building. Some of those include; the ability to access all parts of the building by stairs - from the declining weight hoppers to the overhead bin conveyor and more, an overhead bin conveyor service platform provides the ability for safe in-season maintenance access while the bin is full of product, the alleyway pit allows for direct loadout along with the ability to fill the micro bins efficiently and to max storage capacity, and there is in-floor heat throughout the alleyway and impregnation room. Lastly, with a fairly tight site Marcus designed bucket elevator tie downs on the roof rather than extending them down to the ground un-obstructing the ground space for SilverEdge’s traffic flow. SilverEdge's dry fertilizer building was also completed in less than seven-month's.
