Project Description

  • Caldwell is thrilled to have constructed this featured tank representing the excitement of the Chicagoland Speedway. This tank's unique structural members and coating system befitting of its location helped earn it the 2001 Tank of the Year as presented by the Steel Tank Institute/Steel Plate Fabricators Association. This project required 365 days and used over 392 tons of steel. Caldwell's performance on this project was outstanding as exhibited by our ability to expediently design the foundation and steel components of the project, order material, install the foundation, fabricate steel components, erect the welded steel structure, apply the protective coatings system, and install electrical components of the project. All construction aspects of this project met all governing agencies' construction standards and methods and, in addition, Caldwell successfully met or exceeded all of the owner's construction quality expectations for this project.
