The modular design would allow for easy increases in capacity (from 206,000 bushels) by adding additional modules of about 55,000 bushels each – allowing the BSB to be built to virtually any size.
Concrete would also help in reducing over-pressure on the elevator walls during filling and emptying – these pressures are often difficult to determine and costly to design for (and to fix if a hole blows out the side of an elevator).
Over 2000 attendees toured the elevator on the first day.
On the second day, grain industry officials from Kansas, Chicago, Minneapolis, Winnipeg, Regina, and Edmonton were given a detailed tour and review of the complex. In 1980 Alberta Beton Limited and Buffalo Beton Limited was formed to assist with the process – Alberta Beton would build the elevators, and Buffalo Beton would market the elevators to other grain companies in western Canada.
Another setback was the configuration of the new advanced equipment (being the jump from conventional elevators to the new style) which utilized horizontal conveyors to move grain between the bins.Out of three examples built of this version, only two remain; one in Fort Saskatchewan, and one in Magrath.The other elevator in Vegreville was demolished in 2009.On a side note, the in-house AWP engineers weren’t included in the initial design of the BSB, but were included in the actual construction of the elevators.Alberta Wheat Pool analyzed its existing grain elevator network and decided that Magrath would be the location for the first Buffalo terminal.
