The hospital required Tricel Lanark to remove their existing sectional tanks and manufacture, deliver and install the replacement HPM Sectional Tanks. The sectional tanks we assembled also had to provide a filtered water supply to comply with SHTMs, a major requirement for hospitals. The job required little to no disruption to the water supply.

Filtered water supply

Our technical knowledge and expertise of SHTM and HTM specifications required by hospitals allowed us to provide the client with a suitable water storage solution that would allow them access to a filtered water supply.

Our site crew accessed the site for the tank replacements, which was located external to the building. Due to the replacement works, an audit was carried out on the existing tank foundations to see if they could support the new sized tanks that were to be upgraded. After a thorough inspection, our installations crew decided the existing foundations needed to be altered in order to support the new GRP water tanks that were being supplied.

Our sales, manufacturing personnel, logistics departments and site crews worked together alongside the hospital contractors, BBESL Glasgow who are a leading infrastructure group to ensure the job was completed within the timeframe required.


Our site crews and logistics personnel committed to tight deadlines on this project as to not disrupt the hospital water supply, delivering on the deadlines agreed with the project contractors prior to manufacture. We successfully installed x2 externally flanged sectional tanks that provided the hospital with the required access to a filtered water supply. The large water tanks provided a total 216,000 litres!

Combining our expertise and knowledge, we assisted BBESL provide a suitable new base through our internal sales and logistics team. The job took two weeks to complete the construction of the water tanks, with no disruption to the hospital’s water supply.
