Getting a detention tank design to help with the actual construction has never been easier. At New York Engineers, we make it easy for you to receive better detention tank designs regardless of the size of the project. If you are interested in our services, here is our standard protocol:

  • Get in touch with us to make initial planning

The first step involves the initial planning where we discuss details of the project including the budget, materials used, building requirements, and many more. We listen to your needs keenly in order to come up with models that exceed your expectations.

  • Site Inspection

Step two involves sending principals over to the project site to gather additional information that will aid us during the designing process. Before we begin the design process, we ensure that we collect all the relevant information with regard to the project.

The sites’ characteristics will be accessed in terms of locations of discharge outlets, space availability, and whether you want your detention tank to be on ground level, on building, or underground. Here, you may also be asked to give details about the building, materials included in the construction, items’ measurements, and the like. 

  • Commencement of Design Process

Once our team takes note of all the relevant details, we will instigate the design process. Our experienced detention tank design team will use the latest technology and software to craft an intelligent and detailed model that best represents your goals. We allow cooperation from every team member to make the design stage more successful.

  • Further Collaboration

Collaborating is important to a successful design stage. For this reason, we will send the design to you and discuss if there are changes that need to be done. We are happy to make any adjustments should you require any. This way, we will eliminate any errors early enough before the project goes to the construction stage.

  • Model Delivery

Once we are certain that you are satisfied with the output, we will send the final design on or before the deadline. 

MEP design is undoubtedly a necessity in the world of construction. Research shows that billions of dollars are lost in the US due to faulty design software systems, and this leads to a lot of complications when it comes to developing a detention design system. 

With our detention tank design, it will be easy for you to alter and adjust your model before the actual construction. Whether you want 2D or 3D models, we guarantee that we will cover each angle of your project with accuracy and precision. Rely on our designs to make quick decision making, seamless performance, accurate documentation, thorough planning and operations, as well as cost-estimation.

Before we embark on the job, our certified design professionals take into account factors such as clients’ needs, architectural design, sustainability needs, as well as structural and commercial factors. Our design engineering professionals bring in a lot of expertise and knowledge to every project. Whether you want your MEP design to be created for the concept stage, design development, tender stage, schematic stage or construction stage, we have you covered.

What is a Detention Tank and Why Install One?

These are tanks that store water from your roof temporarily and discharge it at a slower rate. To put in simple terms, a detention tank slows down the rate at which rain from your roof is released into the stormwater infrastructure. Detention tanks collect stormwater during a storm event and release it to the downstream drainage system at controlled rates through a small opening in the tank. 

Here are some primary reasons why you need to install a detention tank:

  • Reduces Peak Flow

Detention tanks can be used to reduce and manage peak flows for up to 10 years’ rainfall event. It provides on-site storage for the stormwater released from your property. 

  • Cost-Efficient

Our detention tanks are undertaken with efficiency and sustainability in mind. We use materials that are energy-efficient to ensure optimal performance for your detention tank. Additionally, we design low-cost detention tanks to cut down maintenance cost in the long run.

  • Adaptable

Apart from holding stormwater, a detention tank can also be used to collect rainwater when it is empty. This makes detention tanks convenient to install for both residential and commercial applications.
