St. Jude Hospital Fire Water Supply and Brine Storage

Project: Needing additional capacity to provide water for the facility’s fire suppression system and brine water storage for the facility’s water treatment systems, MJK providing underground tank installations at this busy hospital.

Challenge: Ongoing expansion of the medical facility created an extremely restricted work area, and required constant coordination with other trades and contractors working at the site. Heavy congestion in the work areas required critical staging of needed materials, equipment and manpower.

MJK Solution: As a suggestion to maintain progress and minimize disruption to other contractors working in our area, MJK recommended that we perform all UST and shoring work simultaneously. MJK met regularly with other contractors to insure access issues and critical path items were communicated well in advance to allow coordination between all trades which led to increased productivity by all involved.
