The conditions of this contract specified the tank needed to be out of sight, after completing a site survey the space recommended by our engineers that would be suitable for the this type of tank was a long and narrow basement space under the director’s box. Our engineers designed and manufactured a bespoke water tank solution to suit this confined space.
