Thousands of shotcrete tanks have been built since the process was pioneered in the early 1930s. These watertight, durable, and economical tanks, which range in size from 50,000 to 20 million gal., can be used to store a variety of liquids, including wastewater, industrial wastes, and chilled water.
Further, since their initial creation in the 1950s, thousands of shotcrete domes have been built as well, ranging from small shelters to huge vessels spanning over 200 ft.
Sturdy, attractive, and cost-effective, these structures are built for a variety of uses, including homes, grain-salt storage, churches, and auditoriums.
