It’s going to be one of London’s tallest buildings but a tank hire company from Great Yarmouth is helping to ensure it has firm foundations.
ATI Tank Hire Ltd has supplied specialist tanks and silos to support construction of the prestigious 100 Bishopsgate project, adding to a London portfolio that includes supplying tanks to the Jubilee Line extension, the Olympic Park and the Shard.
A total of 12 vertical tanks and a dry powder vertical silo will provide enough capacity to blend and store 650 cubic metres (144,000 gallons) of bentonite for Balfour Beatty‘s piling operations.
When piling works are completed in the summer, the tanks and silo will be returned to ATI’s base at Great Yarmouth, where they will be cleaned, serviced and made ready for their next major project.
At a planned 172 metres high on its completion in 2017, 100 Bishopsgate will tower over the City of London with its distinctive twisting corner and translucent cladding. With 40 storeys and 73,000 square metres of office and retail space, it’s a building that ATI is pleased to support
