​Precast Sprinkler Tanks - Gold Coast Qld

Challenge

​​​​With time constraints in place, this site was not suitable for long term open excavation which would have occurred with the cast in-situ tank and liner system on the original plans.  The client preference was to use a more time and cost efficient solution, with an Australian Tanks precast, trafficable and anti-floatation tank system.

Solution

  • Australian Tanks (ATQ) delivered a precast multi-tank sprinkler system ready to lower into the excavation and start backfill almost immediately.
  • Installed in just over five (5) hours
  • ​The system consisted of 6 tanks and a twin turbine vortex pump
  • ​Each twin turbine vortex pump tank also included preinstalled internal galvanized ladders.

Result

  • ​Arrival onsite at 9:00am
  • ​Fully installed by 3:30pm
  • ​Australian Tanks precast alternative
  • ​Trafficable by fully loaded semi-trailer, based on the SM1600 design load ratings
  • Anti-floatation
