CASE STUDY

OCOTILLO MARINE MART (Twentynine Palms, CA)

Intro

Project Description

This design-and-build marina fuel facility project included installation of a 10,000-gallon, two-compartment, aboveground storage tank and double-wall piping systems onto a floating dock for gasoline and diesel fuel dispensing into small-craft vessels. We adhered to the Department of Defense’s Unified Facilities Criteria and the requirements of the California Air Resource Board for phase-I enhanced vapor recovery for aboveground tanks.

Notable Accomplishment

Design and engineering was underway for an Underground Storage Tank (UST) System; however, the end user changed its mind and decided in favor of an Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) System instead. Western Pump worked diligently with its design consultant to completely switch gears and deliver the project drawings on time. Once the design was completed, Western Pump then had to re-quote the project accordingly. Negative cost impacts were substantially minimized by working together to value engineer (VE) the fuel system without sacrificing quality. Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) requirements were also adhered to in order to comply with mission critical facility standards.
