Site Preparation

There are a number of factors that are critical to correctly preparing your site for your water tank installation. Important things to have in place prior to the day of installation include:

  • A flat, level site with an additional 1m pad area allowed for on each side of the tank diameter area.
  • Access to the site should be clear for the delivery of materials.
  • Any concrete ring beams should be constructed to specification identified for the project.
  • A minimum of 10,000l should be made available on the day of construction to stabilise the water tank.

TOP RING

This series of images illustrates the installation process employed by Heritage Water Tanks. Whilst we need to protect the particular details of our construction techniques, these images provide an insight into the lengths to which Heritage Water Tanks will go to ensure worksite safety and the highest level of installation efficiency. The top ring including the roof and platform are built on the ground and the liner is also attached at this initial stage.

SECOND AN THIRD RINGS

Next, the top ring is jacked higher into the air allowing the 2nd ring to be bolted to it without the installation team needing to leave the ground.

After jacking up the 2nd ring, the 3rd ring is ready for installation. During this process, the liner continues to unwrap inside the tank. The jacking system keeps creating space for the next ring without requiring the installers to leave the ground. This ensures a safer working environment.

ALL RINGS COMPLETE

All rings are complete with the jacks still attached. Once the final ring is installed the tank is lowered onto the ground and the jacks are removed. As the installation continues, all bolt covers and fittings are attached with no personnel required to leave the ground.

Reliability and Safety

At Heritage Water Tanks, our health, safety, environment and community responsibilities are integrated into everything and underpin the way we do business.

Safe work method statements (SWMS) and Step back assessments (JHA and JSA) are prepared for each site. Our installers are all trained in Confined Space and Working at Heights, updated every 2 years.

All equipment and vehicles brought to sites are mine site specification compliant and all staff comply with appropriate PPE standards and personal conduct at all times. All of our installers are expected to carry Public Liability Insurance and to attend all induction or training courses as required by our customers.

Heritage Water Tanks uses a jacking system allowing the construction of water tanks of up to nearly 8 metres in height. The advantages of this installation method includes minimising the need for the Installation Team to work at heights, confined space entry and the use of ladders.

AUSTRALIAN STANDARD COMPLIANT LADDERS

Once all the tank rings have been installed and the tank is bolted down, a crane is used to install a safety ladder, compliant with all relevant Australian Standards including AS1657-2013 Fixed platforms, walkways, stairways and ladders – Design, construction and installation.
