PRELOAD LLC, a prestressed concrete tank design and construction company, announced the company’s inaugural Concrete Decision Award, a celebration of the communities and industries that are home to PRELOAD’s Top Tanks of 2016.

The Concrete Decision competition is an effort to bring positive attention to the important role that storage infrastructure improvement plays in communities and the impact PRELOAD’s prestressed tank design and construction team makes across the U.S.

“We are proud to bring a spotlight to the communities that have been such great partners for PRELOAD,” said Ryan Harvey, CEO. “Storage infrastructure projects have a major impact on the success and development of communities, and we are intrigued to see which of our 2016 tanks will prevail as the Concrete Decision 2016 Top Tank.”
