Title: Hazardous material storage facility with sloped floors and method of construction

Abstract: A metal hazardous material storage facility where the floor is divided into an upper floor, having passages therethrough, and a lower floor, located below said upper floor and which has a sloped surface. A sensor, which is coupled to a leak detection system is located at the lowest point on the lower floor. Containers of hazardous material are stored on the upper floor. As such, regardless of where the container is stored in the facility, any fluid which leaks from a container will pass through the openings in the upper floor and flow down the sloped surface of the lower floor to the sensor.
