The Gulf Breeze Medical Office Building project in Pensacola, Florida, was over budget, and like many projects, the stormwater management system was a large contributing factor. In addition, the Florida panhandle lacks a prominent supply of aggregate, making larger excavations that require a lot of stone very expensive.
To reduce costs, the contractor began seeking alternatives for the specified arch product that would use less material and landed on the StormTank Module. The StormTank team worked with the local distributor, R.H. Moore, and the project engineer to evaluate different product heights and alternative design layouts.
Ultimately, the high void space of the Module system allowed for more storage in a smaller footprint, reducing the original excavation size and using less stone backfill, to bring the total installation cost back within budget.
