Planning and design of port terminals in the water presents very unique challenges.
Most port terminal buildings will need to be designed for new security measures required by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agency. In addition, poor soil conditions near waterways are usually not suitable for supporting fertilizer storage structures. Also land cost and adjustments for other port clients presents more challenges.
Many of Stueve’s current employees have Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC™) identity cards which enable them to work in the secured areas within the Port Terminal.
Stueve Construction LLC. has experience in several port terminal warehouse constructions suitable for storage and handling of fertilizer with a brief list below:
