Florida Sugar & Molasses Exchange, Inc., a non-profit trade association has provided efficient distribution of molasses since its founding in 1969. Representing a majority of the state’s producers, the Exchange works year-round. At the Port of Palm Beach facility, the Exchange has a tank farm where sugar and molasses are received, stored, and exported (product destinations reaching as far as Europe and Canada).
This project consisted of the complete roof removal and replacement of the Enrique Arias Sugar Terminal Warehouse originally built in 1977. The existing ventilation system was also replaced with a new ridge ventilator.
Lemartec’s team faced different challenges in this project: the project was set to meet a fast track duration of seven months from contract execution. The design analysis and permit process were also included in the fast track schedule. Furthermore, the facility was active and operational through the entire construction period, and our team had to work with extra care to avoid the contamination of the client’s product.
