PROJECT UPDATE: Periodically we get an out-of-the-box opportunity. Our work on the Garland Water Tower Repair for Walsh / Archer Western is a perfect example. This week, FINLEY Engineering Group was onsite for this mission-critical water storage facility for the City of Dallas. It’s a repair job on a water tank that could not be taken out of service. FINLEY designed a passive secondary support system which includes steel pipe columns confined by two reinforced concrete rings. The rings are equipped with strain gauge load cells to monitor the load transfers from the scalloped wall of the tank.
