Specifications & Drawings
Your partner in the procurement process
As a design-build contractor, Landmark can serve as your end-to-end, full scope resource, providing expert guidance at each step of the water storage procurement process—from siting, budgeting, and geotechnical evaluations…on through preparation of a final project specification. We offer the following resources to help you make the most informed decisions at each stage:
Composite elevated tank / Standard drawings
This link provides basic elevation and plan views for a standard tank configuration, which can be incorporated into your system for further detailing and development. Elevation View: PDF DWG Plan view: PDF DWG
Composite elevated tank / Guide for a geotechnical investigation
This link provides a brief introduction and guidelines for conducting a geotechnical/soils evaluation, to facilitate the consideration of foundation options and the design process. Memo and Guidelines: PDF Memo: DOC Investigation Guidelines: DOC
Composite elevated tank / Life cycle cost evaluation program
As previewed in Water Storage/Composite elevated tank/Cost advantage, this Excel-based program can project and compare the future recoating costs of a composite elevated tank with all-steel spheroids, fluted columns, and multi-legged configurations at equivalent capacities and high water levels (HWL), with standard cost and interest rate assumptions. It is instrumental in highlighting the dramatic maintenance cost savings that can be achieved with the composite tank, and in identifying the degree of future budget requirements that can be avoided

Composite elevated tank / Sample bid evaluation
The significance of the composite maintenance advantage and its impact on total ownership cost is demonstrated in the bid evaulation for a 1.5 MG elevated tank conducted by the City of Portage, MI, provided here: PDF
Composite elevated tank / Sample site plan
Composite tank projects require certain minimum site dimensions for the construction process, including crane access and lay-down areas for components. This sample site plan will identify the basis requirements and provide helpful guidelines. (PDF).
Composite elevated tank / Detail drawings
Virtually every composite tank project includes some of the most popular accessories and options, so this area provides detail drawings on 12 often-specified configurations, such as wall penetration for inlet/outlet piping, supports for structural floor framing, and more…to make your design process as complete and accurate as possible. (PDF and DWG format available on request with project details).
Composite elevated tank / Recommended specification
One of the critical objectives of the procurement process is a well-written project specification, the basis for bid phase. It should accurately and precisely reflect all of your objectives, including the experience factors of contractors and the equipment and procedures they will use to achieve desired standards such as architectural concrete. The example provided is based on Landmark’s extensive track record and industry leadership, and can serve as an excellent starting point for your project. PDF DOC
Composite elevated tank / Project budget information
Landmark can provide up-to-date budget parameters for your basic requirements, based on current material costs and trends, as well as other key factors to assist in your planning process. Since every project and location is unique, please submit your request (with location, capacity, and dimensions if possible) via phone or e-mail by visiting the Contact Us page.
