Sand/Salt Storage and
Processing FacilityThe Anoka County Highway Department wanted
to build a sand/salt storage facility which will withstand the extensive wear and extreme
conditions and have a longer service life than the average storage facility. The combination of sand, salt, moisture,
freeze/thaw action and the extensive wear of the front end loaders requires special material engineering and durability considerations in
the design and specification of the facility floor.
County Highway Department and it's design consultant hired JEC to review the project
specifications and supplement the concrete requirements to meet the owner's need for a
floor slab of high performance concrete to stand up to harsh service conditions.
