The two tanks were constructed on 52 ft. diameter concrete pedestals, each requiring 22 concrete pours in our revolutionary seven-foot forms to help the tanks reach their 210’-5” water height. Standing side by side, these large tanks consumed 1.2 million pounds of steel.
Both tanks were completed on time and solidified Phoenix’s reputation for total construction capabilities for large Composite Elevated Tank on the most demanding stage. They have been online since 2010, proudly serving a facility largely responsible for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Nuclear Security Enterprise.
