Allnorth was engaged by Shorefast Foundation to design a new water tank and chlorination building to service the Fogo Island Inn. The building consisted of a new gas chlorination system complete with all valves, fittings, meters, and associated works. The project was in response to low chlorine residuals and pressures at the Fogo Island Inn due to using the Town of Joe Batt’s Arm as their main water source.
Allnorth was the Prime Consultant and was responsible for evaluating water pressures and flows, designing the chlorination system, and completing structural design of the building. Allnorth completed all aspects of engineering, including civil, structural, tender administration, and project management.
After a geotechnical assessment was completed at all proposed sites, was determined that there would be a high quantity of rock excavation at any site, thus Allnorth designed a minimized foundation footprint to save on excavation costs. A proposed site for the water tank had to be at the right elevation and owned by a party that would sell to Shorefast, which made the site selection difficult. The water tank design took into consideration that it would fill from the Town of Joe Batt’s existing water network but not take away pressures or volumes from the residents on the same network.
