Petroleum Bulk Storage & Dispensing Design
CORE was selected by Mendon Truck Leasing (Mendon) to complete
designs for an aboveground diesel storage tank, attendant kiosk and diesel
exhaust fluid (DEF) dispensing systems at their 362 Kingsland Avenue
location in Brooklyn, New York. The project included a pre-design
Site inspection, assessment of the facility’s diesel needs, preparation of
engineering designs and soliciting bidders for construction.
Initially CORE designed and assisted Mendon with installing a
temporary 1,000 gallon aboveground tank at the site to meet temporary
needs. CORE then worked with Mendon to determine long-term needs
and prepare a design fitting to those needs.
CORE performed reviews of both New York City (NYC) Codes and
Regulations and NYC Department of Buildings (NYCDOB) regulations
regarding Petroleum Bulk Storage, diesel exhaust fluid, and flood zones.
Best Management Practices (BMPs) consistent with industry-developed
practices were employed to develop a comprehensive site-specific solution.
The design included the following:
- NYC UL 2085-approved aboveground 2,000 gallon storage
- New 500 gallon DEF dispensing system
- NYC Codes and Regulation notes for construction, fuel
systems, and diesel exhaust fluid systems
- Overfill and leak detection system and electrical systems
In addition to the system design, CORE provided bid specifications
and drawings for Mendon to utilize in bid procurement. Successful bid
specifications and drawings required continued interaction with both
Mendon and the NYCDOB to ensure all necessary requirements were
