Liquid Chemical and Fertilizer Facilities
Because of the efficiency, accuracy and yield benefits, many farmers are utilizing more liquid fertilizer in their applications. As a result, more ag retailers are constructing liquid fertilizer facilities alongside pesticide storage to better serve their farmers. Most new facilities have different receiving and loadout options, multiple products, and the ability to blend micronutrients, which creates many design challenges and underscores the importance of partnering with an experienced design/build team. Building a Secondary Containment System.
Terraco works with our clients to design flexible, efficient systems that provide exceptional service to their customers. We utilize relationships with various engineering and automation firms within the industry to assemble a complete turnkey package for our client’s consideration. After meeting with our clients to explore the project requirements, Terraco will provide general arrangement drawings for client review, followed by firm estimates – all at no cost to the client. In some complex facilities, upfront design costs may be required for firm pricing, but qualified budget estimates are always available at no charge. Our facility designs can include fully automated rail unload systems, micronutrient blending, afterhours loadout service, and more.
After pricing is agreed-upon and contracts are in place, Terraco will begin the design and permitting phase. We work with the appropriate building officials and relevant environmental regulation authorities for project approval so our clients can focus on their existing responsibilities. When the design is complete, our project manager buys out the project, and our superintendent mobilizes to the site to begin construction. Our superintendent will manage the safety, quality, and schedule of the project, and coordinate the day-to-day activities of our pre-qualified subcontractors. Throughout construction, our clients receive regular project updates as prepared by our superintendent and project manager, so they can stay up-to-date with project progress and easily inform others in their company about project status. This continues until the final walk-through, which ensures all punch-list items are completed, and that the project meets or exceeds quality expectations.
