St. Louis Port Facility Structural Design
LOCATION: St. Louis Port
Port transportation engineering services were performed by TWM for this project for the St. Louis port facility. We provided comprehensive geospatial surveying and engineering services for the construction of a 162’ pre-engineered tower, bucket elevator, personnel elevator, distributor, chute work, catwalks, supports and conveyor modifications. TWM surveyed eight 87’ tall x 35’ diameter bins to determine the required tower and distributor height for a minimum 45º slope on chutes from distributer to bins. TWM located all existing infrastructure. Structural and mechanical services included design of all chutes, chute supports, conveyors, transitions, deadboxes, other equipment, and catwalks. TWM staff verified dimensions to ensure proper fit.
