Sands Point Water District Elevated Tank
A pre-bid inspection of the elevated tank revealed the tank was in need of several repairs to maintain the structural integrity and expected tank life and to bring the tank in compliance with OSHA standards. The effects of cleaning the exterior of the tank and of the lead paint on the surrounding park were major factors to be considered. Bowne provided complete design of the repairs and repainting. This service included the preparation of construction plans and specifications and obtaining the necessary approvals from the Nassau County Department of Health. Bowne also prepared the contract documents and provided service during the construction phase, consisting of periodic site inspections, contract administration, shop drawing review, coordination of soil sampling for lead, and final certification of compliance with the approved plans and specifications.
