Highlands Ranch Water Storage Tank
Highlands Ranch Metropolitan District, Highlands Ranch, Colorado.
A new 4 million gallon (4MG) water storage facility was under design for the Highlands Ranch Metropolitan District in Colorado. The new facility called for a large buried concrete reservoir to service planned residential development. Visual impact from the project was a concern.
POITRA was contracted to make illustrations of the options for the proposed round tank design. The illustrations would be used by the project team to explain and compare the options for tank location and visual mitigation.
The Engineer decided that 3D models would offer the best method for comparison especially for the new grading.
Graphic artists at POITRA Visual created project maps that identified the views for each alternative. (click to magnify)
