Last week we surveyed a non-compliant concrete water tank on the roof of a West Yorkshire museum. The client wanted either a new tank or a tank reline to comply with ACOP L8 requirements for water storage. We sent out a team to take a look at the museum and to see what work would be needed. Once our team arrived on site, they ensured that the surrounding area was closed off and they carried out the necessary auditing process.
The team came to the conclusion that it would require a tank replacement or reline that would ensure it was made compliant. This also meant closing the museum for a short period of time. The museum is a nonprofit organisation so they needed us to be as competitive as possible. This meant providing the museum with a price that is reasonable as well as being efficient with our work and ensuring that the museum was reopened as quickly as possible. Based on the location and sound structure of the tank we recommended a tank reline as this is more cost effective and less impactful on the site. This ensured that the museum would be back open as swiftly as possible and our team got to work that same day.
Our team have years of experience and have worked on a number of public areas where they have to be closed for a period of time, which we understand. We ensure that every job is carried out to the best of our ability whilst remembering that these companies have a business to run. We take pride in ensuring that every tank replacement is done to the best of our ability as well as keeping it as cost-effective as possible for the client.
Overall, we are happy with the final outcome of the water tank and felt happy enough reopen it to the public. The guys at the museum were shocked at how quickly we were able to carry out the job and we were delighted at how well everyone worked on that particular job.
