Echo Square Services were delighted to have been awarded the opportunity to carry out the full water tank refurbishment and relining of two large sectional GRP cold water storage tanks located on the roof of a prestigious hotel in Holborn.
Both cold water tanks were leaking and suffering from the heavy delamination of the water tanks internal gel coat therefore both water tanks had been deemed non-compliant with ACOP L8 guidelines and required relining with a WRAS approved polyurethane coating.
The hotels entire potable cold water supply is fed by the two cold water storage tanks therefore it was essential only one cold water storage was refurbished at a time ensuring the hotels cold water services remained online throughout the entire project.
Both cold water storage tanks also had non-compliant hollow roof supports in place which our operatives replaced with WRAS approved GRP solid roof supports while carrying out the water tank relining works.
Shortly after commencing the works, it became apparent that the water tanks roofs were allowing for the ingress of rain water through gaps in the panels seams.
To solve this issue our operative’s fibre glass repaired all the roof panels joints followed by externally coating both roofs with a UV stabilised coating.
Both cold water storage tanks were spray disinfected upon completion as required by ACOP L8 guidelines prior to being placed back into service.
