Chemical Containment Building - Gwinner, ND

Bobcat facility

Lowry Engineering completed plans to provide potential spill storage in an area where hazardous chemicals are stored at the Bobcat facility in Gwinner, ND. Two options were considered. One was underground holding tanks, the other utilized the concrete floor and walls. The second option was chosen by the owner due to cost of construction. Given the area of the floor, Lowry Engineering was able to determine how far above the floor the doors into the building needed to be to ensure all chemicals would be contained inside the building in the event of a spill. The worst-case scenario was designed per EPA standards. Construction was completed during the summer of 2018.
