Gas station construction requires a company that is extremely experienced in all needed aspects of such an involved and unique project as a fueling facility.
State-of-the-art technology is employed for the complete site inspection, analysis, engineering, estimating in detail, permitting, intricate design, and project management that has to go into the building of such a facility and its underground or above ground fuel storage systems. In some situations there must be a demolition of the existing building and removal of the fuel storage before upgrading the site and constructing the new facility and the underground fuel storage.
Experienced and knowledgeable crews must deliver responses 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for all facility needs and emergency repairs. A full service warehouse should be a part of the company in order to deliver necessary parts 24 hours a day.
Everything must be accomplished in compliance with ADA and local regulations. Every one of the professional field crew’s technicians, superintendents, and construction managers must be OSHA, ICC, and API certified. They must maintain the needed manufacturer and factory certifications to install, start-up, and service all types of equipment and fuel systems. They must stay knowledgeable about all current and pending regulations that are relevant to petroleum fuel systems and aid in CUPA certifications and SB989 testing.
