Costco Moorabbin, in Victoria, is on program and progressing very well. Last week saw the installation of four fuel tanks, a major milestone for the external works.

The tanks are 16m long and at 3m diameter, they each have a 110,000L capacity. Based on a standard fuel tank of 55L these tanks could fill 8,000 cars

Given the ground conditions, the excavation for the tanks required structural shoring. The tanks get strapped down to pre-cast footings to prevent floating in the event that we get a lot of rain before they can be filled with water. And let’s face it, we are in Victoria – it could happen.

Once they are all connected and tested, the water is pumped out, replaced with fuel and Costco is ready for business!

Sounds easy, right?
