North Tank Farm Expansion 2

RT Group, Inc. (RTG) was retained to provide construction management of the North Tank Farm Expansion, which included the construction of a 140-foot-diameter, 152,000 barrel capacity above ground storage tank, the tank foundation, the installation of the GCL liner, tank cathodic protection system, and mechanical product and fire protection piping. The construction cost for this portion of the expansion project was about $1.8M. RTG was responsible for coordinating the four different site contractors and overseeing the progress and completeness of the work being performed. RTG also coordinated material purchasing and scheduling, monitored the contract milestones and resolved schedule conflicts. RTG performed construction layout of the new tank for minimum setback requirements and layout of tank appurtenances for the Owner’s operation. Additionally, RTG processed all administrative and construction submittals for the Owner. Prior to installing the tank foundation, RTG directed the site contractor to over excavate and re-compact the base material beneath the tank due to environmental exploratory work performed previously in conjunction with a remediation project in the vicinity of the new tank. In addition to the tank construction, RTG oversaw the relocation and containment of contaminated material.
