This project involved the construction of a tank farm for the storage of oils used in the production of infant nutritional products. The project consisted of piled foundations with an insulated metal clad structural steel structure approximately 30m high.

An intermediate floor was constructed at approximately eight meters to support the tanks. The construction process was particularly difficult as existing buildings and live services were located in close proximity restricting access which was via a narrow lane, while at the same time over 600 employees required access to production areas, utility blocks, and the main entrances 24 hours a day.

These entrances were in close proximity to the construction works and ensuring the safety of the employees/public and the live services was of the utmost importance and necessitated a close interaction between our site management team and the client’s health and safety staff.
