For the City of Richfield, MN TMI Coatings completed interior re-coating, complete exterior abrasive blast and re-coating of 1,500,000-gallon legged elevated water tank. Containment system with bonnet, full ground cover and dust collector attached per SSPC level 2, Method A.

Structural repairs/modifications were done.

Project was difficult due to site constraints:

The size and scope of the project was complex, as it was necessary to maintain City operations and telecommunications services for the duration of the project. With minimal space for TMI’s equipment – including a full-containment structure, and temporary equipment to keep telecommunications services operating, the project was further impacted by the tower’s proximity to Penn Avenue, a major thoroughfare. Project coordination was maintained with Hennepin County with regard to traffic controls, and Xcel Energy respective to overhead power lines in order to complete the project. Finally, TMI had to allow continual access for Fire Station No.2.

This was achieved by TMI’s installation of temporary fencing around the immediate work zone and their working with the carrier’s, and fire department to establish a working corridor on the south side of the fire station and establishing a lay-down area on the southeast side. Jersey barriers placed on the west side of the work zone provided pedestrian traffic control and allowed for the staging of additional TMI equipment.

The project was completed on time and to the satisfaction of the owner: a Letter of Recommendation from the City of Richfield, MN Contact : Russell Lupkes, Utilities Superintendent. Russell Lupkes said “TMI completed the project safely, without incident, in accordance with strict OSHA requirement for fall protection. This is the third project we have successfully completed with TMI and will recommend utilizing TMI on future projects”.
