CarMax Boston Underground Tank Installation


We visited the above referenced job site Wednesday, October 28, 2015 to review the gasoline storage system construction. We met with Michael Kowalczyk, Project Superintendant for DiMarco Construction, and Rodrigo, representative for Com-Tank, the fuel system subcontractor. The primary purpose of the visit was to check the new underground tank, piping, see the piping pressure tests, piping penetrations into the tank and dispenser sumps, and overall progress on the project.

We have no punch list items to report at this stage of the construction. The overall installation appears to exceed the requirements of the construction documents. The contractor appears to be experienced and knowledgeable. The fuel system work that has been completed was professionally done. The fuel system contractor’s work area was neat and orderly. We discussed our expectations (especially with regards to the electrical conduit within the STP sump) for the final construction review with Rodrigo before we left the location.

Excellent work so far. We wish these guys were on all three Boston projects.
