Materials Used & Special Services Required:
FEMA P-361 Storm shelter, 250 mph wind speed design. Constructed of block, conventional steel framing and specialty construction products.
The Sandy Pines Campground Convenience Center projects were a first of their kind. The campground summer population and limited options for storm shelter revealed the concern for safety. In a joint effort and though collective grant applications Sandy Pines obtained both local municipal funding and a federal FEMA grant to provide funding assistance for a campground bath and vending center built to FEMA P-361 Tornado Shelter standards.
