The PX5 Warehouse and conveyor structures project entailed the construction of fertilizer storage and distribution building.

The building consists of concrete bases and retaining walls with a structural frame comprised of castellated sections.

Due to the very onerous nature of fertilizer on the corrosion protection, as well as the adverse effect of fertilizer to galvanizing, the team was forced to use a very onerous paint specification.
