Sugar Warehouse Roof Replacement and Ridge Vent Installation

Sugar Warehouse Roof Replacement and Ridge Vent Installation

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.


  • Installation of a new roof and Moffitt ventilator at a 12:12 roof slope.
  • The new roof panel and ventilator exterior material are Precoated SIGNATURE 300 Panel (Precoated 70% Fluoropolymer) to help resist the effects of saltwater exposure and extend the life of the roof with minimum maintenance required.
  • Improvement of air circulation and working conditions within the building.
  • Located in Port of Palm Beach, high winds coming from the waterside presented construction challenges and raised safety considerations.
