RIX offers design advice, planning and complete shotcrete construction packages for water storage, washout bays or holding tanks. Shotcrete is suited to free flowing forms.
Aboveground tanks can be formed on one side internally or externally whilst in-ground ground tanks, like swimming pools, use the excavated faces as form work. They can also be constructed in one continuous and rapid shotcrete application, avoiding cold joints and offering an extremely economical option, compared to other methods.
