Who can renovate an entire water tower while production continues?

GPS applied a revolutionary method to renovate the water tower while production continued. Building a new water tower was not an option, so GPS’s creativity offered another solution. Hydro demolition, sprayed concrete, and the assembly of a new component of the water tower were all part of the scope. A multidisciplinary project of an exceptionally high level. A picture is worth a thousand words, so have a look at the project video below.
