Project No. 6524
The BE Collective team was recently commissioned to provide consultancy services regarding the identification and analysis of potential chemical related flood risks for a service station on Sandgate Road.
Through the use of a risk analysis chart we identified the key potential risk was the buoyancy of the underground fuel tanks. Considering the site was placed in a relatively flood prone area, the buoyant tanks presented a serious danger if water levels suddenly rose.
With this in mind we designed concrete sleepers which would counter the buoyancy of the tanks in the case of a flooding event, as well as providing solutions to the other problems identified.
