Benton Design Team

After many years of use, the loading dock Tropical Shipping uses in St. Thomas was in poor condition.  J. Benton Construction was hired to develop a solution that could be implemented quickly and without disrupting the loading and unloading of Tropical’s fleet of vessels.  We demolished and replaced over 400 LF of damaged concrete in between and around the rails that support the large container cranes as well as repairs to the bulkhead without delaying the critical movement of cargo in and out of St. Thomas.
