FAL Construction – Edmonson Park

The Challenge

Australian Tanks was specified by the engineers on this job. Through this channel, Australian Tanks was approached by FAL Construction for the first time and right at the start during the tender stage.

There were two main challenges on this project:

  1. The requirement for certain changes was identified during the execution stage. Those changes carried time and cost implications with them.
  2. FAL is a new client who has never installed Australian Tanks’ tanks before.

There were also minor scheduling issues due to weather events.

The Solution

  • Australian Tanks’ relationship with the engineers helped FAL and the project in dealing with changes at the execution stage. Australian Tanks assisted by providing solutions that satisfied the design, quality, time, and cost requirements. Result: happy stakeholders.
  • Australian Tanks provided FAL with very detailed information with regards to the install of this system and the support needed to overcome all install planning difficulties.

Australian Tanks supported FAL as needed and rescheduled deliveries in accordance with their install plans. The install was completed in two days right before the first day of FAL’s Christmas break.

When you get a quick installation turnaround time, less cleaning out, and easier coordination with other trades, plus the long-term cost-benefit advantages, there’s not much more you can ask for!

The decision to use Australian Tanks was an easy one to make as they were specified by the engineers on the plans. During the execution stage of our project, we were faced with structural changes that carried significant time and cost implications. Seeing how their pre-cast tanks offer ease of installation and site coordination, which meant we could save weeks of hold-ups to the rest of the site, we felt that there wasn’t a more suitable solution available. Especially when comparing it to competitors who use plastic tanks, Australian Tanks just seemed a lot more reliable. The only thing we were concerned with was with long lead times for interstate delivery. However, delivery arrived as promised, without any issues and was timed very well with site requirements. The responsiveness from their team, as well as the understanding of the job specifics, was second to none, and it would be hard to fault any aspect of their service. When you get a quick installation turnaround time, less cleaning out, and easier coordination with other trades, plus the long-term cost-benefit advantages, there’s not much more you can ask for!

Project required 150,000L water storage for reuse at the Aldi Brendale distribution centre truck wash bay.
Civilivic, Stormwater Detention
Situated beneath a shared driveway, this 42,000L stormwater detention site presented multiple requirements in project time and cost efficiencies. The site could not be shut down for two weeks for an in-situ solution, therefore an anti-floatation and heavy duty trafficable Australian Tanks precast solution with a one-day install time was the most efficient process available.
Dean Ash Construction
This large 135,000L stormwater detention system required multiple efficiencies in time and cost – located under a roadway, it was essential to ensure both a trafficable and anti-floatation system within a 24 hour timeframe.
