The new fabric building features a durable rigid frame and is fully lined to protect the structural steel from fertilizer.

The bulk fertilizer plant constructed for Ag Partners measures an impressive 120 by 420 feet (35.5 by 128 m), with a peak height of 63 feet (19 m) and 8/12 roof pitch. 24-foot-tall (7.3 m) sidewalls are comprised of 10-foot  (3 m) fabric sides sitting atop a 14-foot (4.3 m) concrete wall. The building can store up to 32 000 short tons (approx. 29 000 t) of bulk dry fertilizer, which is distributed by rail and truck to retail and wholesale customers. The previous fabric structure on the site had a hoop frame that had become unsafe due to severe rust issues. The new fabric building features a durable rigid frame and is fully lined to protect the structural steel from fertilizer. The polyethylene tension fabric roof uses no winch straps or block to further prevent against corrosion, and is rated for 90 mph (144 km/h) winds and 35 psf ground snow.
