When specifying underground detention there are three very important factors to consider: strength, efficiency, and all-in cost.
For SpringHill Suites by Marriott in Pearland, the efficiency of the Atlantis Flo-Tank® tank system would allow the storage of the required volume in a very small space. Atlantis Flo-Tank® tank’s 95% void interior not only stores more water in a smaller footprint than pipe-based detention systems, it also dramatically reduces the amount of backfill required, greatly reducing the “all-in” cost of the system.
The Atlantis Flo-Tank® tank system allows over 95% of the excavation to be filled with tank modules. Equally important, the small volume of backfill required is common sand, which offers a huge cost savings over competing systems that require expensive specialized fill. Atlantis Flo-Tank® tank modules strength, due to an internal vertical baffle system, supports vehicle loading (H-20) with ease. This combination of strength and efficiency typically reduces excavation and backfill costs by over 90%, resulting in a 10% – 50% reduction in total all-in cost over competing systems!
