Initial Specification 

The original specified product was an arch retention system comprised of 2 basins for a total volume of 1,168m2.

ORIGINAL PROPPSAL-01.png

Initial specified product: Arch retention system

1,168m2

EZSTORM-01.png

Proposed Solution: EZStorm Basin

868m2

After careful review, NouVLR selected EZStorm for their waterstorm retention system.

 

The EZStorm high-capacity structure was installed, allowing the construction of a parking lot for light and heavy vehicles.
