The Premier 370 Business Park is an 850-acre business development located in St. Peters, Missouri, a growing city nestled between the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. The Business Park is home to several warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities. When the city of St. Peters needed three new wells drilled to support the development’s operations, they worked with Martin General Contracting, a family-owned and operated company specializing in water and wastewater treatment projects for state and government entities. For field equipment protection, Martin General Contracting turned to Shelter Works.
Accommodating the Operating Environment
This project consisted of three fiberglass equipment shelters. Two shelters, measuring 12′ x 12′ x 8′, were located in the area’s floodplain. To accommodate their location and the threat of potential floodwaters, they were mounted on elevated metal platforms, using a crane, then welded to the wells’ casings.
The third and largest structure, measuring 12′ x 21′ x 8, was anchored to a cement pad located outside of the floodplain. Tim Harrelson, Superintendent for Martin General Contracting, oversaw the shelters’ arrival and said “Delivery was on time and installation was a breeze.”
Each shelter has a 4’ x 4’ aluminum roof hatch to be utilized when the pumps need to be repaired or replaced. The location of the hatches above the pumps allows for easy crane removal and replacement of the equipment. Primary access to the shelters is a single door with an inset window and a low profile threshold.
