Structure location: Ohio
Structure size: 32 x 60 and 66 x 80
Structure use: Sand / Salt Storage
Customer: Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT)
ODOT was looking for a way to speed up the process of loading and unloading their trucks for highway salt/sand. They asked if it would be possible to make an open sided building. The requirement for the other building was to be able to back in a large truck and dump the box without hitting the top of the building.
Working together with their engineers we came up with the idea for side loading bays and designed the building to be engineered for their high snow conditions. The other building benefited from our clear spanning arch design, which allowed large trucks to be able to drive in, dump their material, and drive out.
