In June, 2016, a new Love’s Travel Stop opened in Boardman, Oregon, offering professional truck drivers and other travelers 24-hour access to clean, safe places to buy gas, diesel fuel, travel items, meals, and snacks. An essential part of this particular Travel Stop is the private well that provides water for all of the 11,000-square-ft facility’s needs, including food preparation, showers, bathrooms, outside irrigation, and fire hydrants.
Orenco Composites™ manufactured the two-room, fiberglass-reinforced DuraFiber™ building that serves as a water utility building and houses the system’s booster pumps. One room serves as a control room, while the other contains most of the pumps and piping. Each room has its own exterior door. The building features pump controls, interior and exterior lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. It also has a hatch on the roof to allow for pump removal. The walls and roof were integrally molded using a vacuum-infusion process, which adds to the strength of the building. It measures 24 feet long, 12 feet wide, and 8 feet high.
