Innovative design including design of an OSD tank at basement ceiling of a building in Polding Street, Fairfield Heights
OSD refers to On-Site Detention Tank, an approach used to detain rainwater within a tank during major storms to protect street stormwater system from sudden large flows.
The project was for a commercial building and the aim was to save every square meter of the land. The challenges with this project were to provide an OSD tank that complies with Fairfield City Council requirements and Hydraulic Engineering principles whilst minimising the area lost for construction of OSD tank. Zeta team designed an OSD tank supported to the ceiling of the basement.
The design fulfilled Council and engineering requirements with ZERO losses.
This innovative design has saved the developer an area for a large commercial shop and a spacious office.
