Fuel Storage Facility

Our team provided program management and design-build services for the development of a new fuel storage facility at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL).

We started by developing preparatory bid documents to establish the scope of work and enable the design and construction of the new facility. The document development process included site surveying and geotechnical investigations to document existing subsurface conditions.

We conducted an analysis for the potential construction of a new fuel storage facility. The analysis looked at multiple alternate sites for the new storage facility and provided possible solutions for connecting the new storage facility with existing hydrant systems and supply lines on the airfield via new transfer lines. The analysis provided STL Fuel with preliminary design concepts for the new fuel storage facility and new transfer lines.

We were selected to design-build the fuel storage facility, transfer line and associated enabling projects on the airfield. The fuel storage facility has a maintenance and operations building, pipeline receipt filtration, three 24,000 bbl storage tanks, hydrant pump system, fire suppression system and 11,000-foot transfer line. The enabling projects include a hydrant cart test stand, fuel truck loading facility, ground service equipment facilities, isolation vaults and an update to the EFSO system.
