Titan America’s Chesapeake project summary available now

Dome Technology has completed its project summary for Titan America‘s DomeSilo in Chesapeake, Virginia, USA.

The 67,500-metric-ton DomeSilo is identical to one built for the company in Tampa, Florida, during the same time.

The DomeSilo is 138 feet in diameter and 141 feet tall. Because the Chesapeake site had a height restriction like the Tampa site, Titan chose a DomeSilo model that “is not a complete sphere but rather a cylinder with a dome roof,” Titan corporate director of projects Nasos Economou said. Although most of the height comes from vertical stem walls, the structure still benefits from the robust strength and monolithic integrity that comes standard with a DomeSilo.

One of Titan’s priorities was taking full advantage of the portside property. The site’s soil conditions required a deep foundation to minimize settlement, and an auger-cast piling system with pile cap provided structural security from the ground up. Because of limited space, Dome Technology designed buildings for the Fuller-Kinyon (FK) Screw Pump and blowers that curve around the DomeSilo exterior rather than standing separate.
