Case Study: Telecommunications - Restricted Placement of UST


Project: The property owner was required to expand fuel capacity for this public utility in compliance with FCC regulation changes. The owner presented their system design to MJK who has experience handling complex projects.

Challenge: The property was not large enough to provide installation of the fuel storage tanks outside the existing building’s footprint. As the proposed new tank location was sited inside the building, the owner contracted MJK to perform the installation. Entry into the proposed area was restricted to the size of the existing roll up entry gate at 9 feet. Because the installation was to occur where building loads rested, the excavation would require shoring to insure structural stability of the multi-story building. The system designer had recommended a custom tank design to accommodate the entry point into the area. However, the installation method development was left to MJK’s expertise.

MJK Solution: MJK designed and installed the shoring taking into consideration the limited overhead height of 12 feet, and performed the installation by modifying existing equipment necessary to lift and set the shoring components. MJK worked with heavy equipment movers to assist in meeting our designs for the equipment needed to move the tank inside the building and placing it in the excavation. As reflected in the photographs, we cleared the opening with mere inches to spare. Extreme care was required to insure that no damage to the tank coating occurred during this process. MJK successfully completed the installation, again demonstrating our expertise in performing complex, intricate projects which require extreme caution, extraordinary attention to detail, and creative thinking and innovation.
