London Hospital: Cold Water Tank Refurbishment

A hospital in London required a Braithwaite panel cold water tank to be refurbished. Although the tank was not very old, it was in very poor condition. It had originally been painted with bitumen tank paint, which had broken down. As a tank replacement would have been costly and time consuming, our client commissioned us to refurbish the existing tank in situ. The refurbishment was required to prolong the working life of the tank, make it easier to be cleaned and inspected, and to control the risk of Legionnaire’s Disease developing.
