Concrete Storage Tank Construction:

Tanks are constructed by erecting  precast and pre-stressed concrete wall panels on a circular reinforced concrete foundation base. The cylindrical tank walls are then post-tensioned circumferentially with greased and PVC coated super strand housed within a PVC ductas. When post-tensioning is complete a reinforced concrete upstand ring beam is cast on both sides of wall panel at intersection of wall panel and foundation base.

A concrete roof can be provided using a grid system of precast concrete columns and spine beams which are then spanned with flat precast and pre-stressed concrete roof panels to cover entire roof area.
