oBuilding Area: 14,000 sq ft (1,300 sq m) Garden Centre and GreenhouseoUsage: This building was designed for an ever growing company. As stunning as the outside of this new Garden Centre is, the interior layout and design is definitely magical. The largest challenge on this project was the requirement for firefighting water supply. We then began the task of designing a tank 80’-0”X20’-0”X6’-0” to accommodate the 71,812 gallons (volume=9600 cubic feet) of water required for on-site water required for this building size. A manhole cover and complete fire connections were attached to the concrete tank. The whole system was then covered with soil to create a burm on site and improve the appearance.
