Bldg 1111, Gas Station Underground Tank Demolition, Removal, and Installation
Location: Cannon Air Force Base, Clovis, New Mexico
Project Cost: $1.2M
RORE was the prime contractor to demolish, remove, and install three 10,000-gallon, double-walled underground tanks; and design, alter, and repair an existing POL facility to provide the required upgrade of the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) gas station at Cannon AFB, NM. A routine inspection identified deficiencies such as lack of proper ventilation, existence of runoff water in the vaults, and damage on sections of the concrete lids. It was necessary to replace the tanks with similar capacity and to conform to safety and environmental codes applicable to petroleum products vaulted AST. RORE removed and replaced three underground storage tanks (USTs) and removed the vault structure to reduce compliance liabilities, maintenance time, effort, and costs.
