Shelter Works Pre-Fabricated Enclosure Buildings

Shelter WorksKeith Simpson is something of a sleuth.  When this Public Works Sewer Supervisor needed to find just the right solution, he didn’t stop until he found the perfect answer: Shelter Works.  “I was looking for the best way to protect some field equipment, and I came upon some really good-looking buildings that were protecting some natural gas equipment,” he explained.  “I looked at the tag on the side of the building that said, ‘Shelter Works’ and investigated the company’s website to learn more.”

In Normal, Illinois, Simpson needed to build two high-quality sanitary lift station buildings to house sewage pumps and electronic controls.  These stations pump sewage uphill until it flows, via gravity, down to the town’s sanitary reclamation district.  He explained, “The weather can be very harsh on these stations, as they have electronics and computer componentry that needs to be protected.  While the computers are in an insulated stainless steel cabinet, the whole system needed more protection.  We have other buildings made of wood construction or brick that have higher periodic maintenance requirements.  When looking at the Shelter Works construction and low maintenance expectations, this seemed to be a more feasible solution.”
