T-4 3MG WATER STORAGE TANK AND BOOSTER PUMP STATION
CITY OF FRESNO – FRESNO, CA
QK worked with the city and stakeholders to design their water storage tank and booster pump station. The environmental permitting and final plans included a three-million-gallon (MG) water storage tank, an operations building, appurtenant exterior facilities including a surge tank and emergency generator, miscellaneous yard piping and site improvements, site landscaping, and architectural treatment of the new tank and operations building.
The City of Fresno designed the water storage facility to address water availability issues within the downtown area and increase fire flow to accommodate future redevelopment needs. With extensive redevelopment projects planned for Downtown Fresno and existing land barriers limiting available water during peak times, the new water storage tank and pump station were needed to meet peak-hour demands.
The $10M T-4 3MG Water Storage Tank and Booster Station project construction is on schedule to complete in May, 2016. The contractor’s bid was less than 1% over the engineer’s estimate and the contract change orders totaled less than ½ of 1% of the contract award.
