Project Value: $5 Million


Tank Site Work which included removal of 300,000 cubic yards of hillside, processing of removed material and re-installation of processed material to facilitate new quarry firewater tank.

  • Earth Moving
  • Grading
  • Paving
  • Underground
  • Masonry
  • Mechanical Piping


The client had selected a location for the new firewater tank to maintain proper pressures to the refinery firewater system without the addition of pumps. Engineering asked us for constructibility of new foundation and execution.


While the original design showed removing hillside and importing new structural fill material from local quarries for the foundation, we processed the existing removed material for uses as the structural fill.

Project Success

Our innovative approach resulted in a client cost savings of $2 million.
