Pipeline Contractor

A good pipeline contractor is hard to come by especially because there is no trade school to become a pipeline project manager or superintendent. The only way to really learn pipeline construction is to work directly for pipeline construction companies. In some cases, there is no formal in-house training offered and new employees simply go out in the field and learn hands-on from their associates. Pipeline contractors may have had decades of field experience, learning the company's culture along the way, to get the basics. However, some things just tend to get missed when lacking formal training.

To solve this problem, Kana Pipeline developed its own in-house pipeline contractor training program for its future Superintendents and Project Managers - those who are directly involved with contract work.

Benefits of Safety Meetings in Construction

Have you considered the benefits of holding safety meetings? When was the last time you held one at your construction company? Who do you think should attend these meetings and how often do you think you should hold a safety meeting? Here's a story to set the stage in showing how important safety meetings can be:

A group of ten people stand in a circle. One person whispers to another person a certain construction safety rule that makes it mandatory for a ladder to be within twenty five feet of any worker in a water pipeline trench deeper than five feet. The person who heard the rule then turns and whispers it to the next person and so forth until each person has heard the safety rule. Can you imagine what the final translation of this rule will be at the end of the tenth person? Probably something to the effect of twenty five ladders for every five workers in an excavator. The point is that it can be very easy for workers to get false or misleading information in the field. This is why it is so important to make time routinely to hold safety meetings where all workers can get together and communicate.

Water Pipe

There are different types of water pipe material that enable drinking water, fire prevention water and landscape-only water to be available as needed throughout our communities. Pipe that carries potable water, fireline water and recycled water is basically composed of two material types: metal or plastic. These water pipe types must operate under various water pressure conditions to ensure water flows to the appropriate designations.

The type of water pipe materials depends on the nature of the construction project and is usually determined by the designing civil engineer according to specifications required for the city or county where water pipe is to be installed. Water pipeline is commonly installed underground. Depending on the corrosivity of soil conditions, plastic pipe may be more suitable over metal pipe. Then again, metal pipe may also be installed using a protective plastic cover

Storm Water Drainage System

Planning and developing a storm water drainage system is an elaborate process that involves many people and agencies. These systems are required to drain water runoff from streets and surface areas like parking lots and sidewalks.

Storm water drainage system plans are developed by design engineers. Plans and materials have to meet standard provisions established at state and federal agencies. System plans for new construction undergo a review process by the City Planner. Once approval is obtained pipeline contractors can begin construction work.

Pipeline Contractors

Pipeline contractors utilize a variety of techniques to install subsurface pipeline systems. The type of pipes used depends upon the construction project. Gas and oil pipelines are entirely different than sewer and water pipelines, although installation processes are sometimes similar.

Pipeline contractors oversee the installation of new pipelines from start to finish. Once a design is provided, subsurface utility engineering is used to locate existing utilities and pipelines. Afterward, the land is prepared by removing rocks, boulders, shrubbery, trees, and other types of landscaping or building materials.

Pipeline Construction

Pipeline construction is an integral process that involves pre-construction planning, the actual construction phase, and post-construction. Each phase requires a dedicated team of highly trained employees including engineers, construction workers, general contractors, and project managers.

The planning phase of pipeline construction involves working with engineers to design the system. Multiple decisions must be made to ensure the project will not have negative impacts on the environment or community. The pipeline project planning team will need to acquire permits, secure easement rights, meet local, state, and federal requirements, and obtain project proposals from various pipeline construction companies.

Storm Drainage System

Reduce Pollutants into American Waters

A storm drainage system is a complex unit that requires careful engineering by a civil engineer and proper installation by a licensed pipeline construction company. Drainage systems are an essential element in all facets of construction including residential, commercial, industrial, and municipal projects.

A storm drainage system includes a series of pipelines and related structures that carry storm water to the point of release. This system reduces environmental impact, such as flooding, that could result in land erosion and property damage. Storm water that accumulates from buildings, roads, and parking lots is gathered into the drainage system and transported through water pipeline until it can be deposited into retention ponds, lakes, rivers, and the ocean, or detention ponds positioned in low-lying areas.

Pipeline Construction Companies

We are often asked, what is the difference between wet and dry pipeline construction companies? Pipeline construction companies can basically be separated into two (2) categories: dry and wet utility pipeline construction. Some pipeline companies do one or specific combinations of wet / dry pipeline construction. Dry utility pipeline construction companies install pipelines that are typically non-petroleum based, that do not hold liquid volumes inside the pipes.

In contrast, there are wet utility pipeline construction companies such as those that install sewer, water pipeline and storm drainage systems. These types of utilities carry liquid volume in the pipe, and are therefore called, "wet" utility pipelines for this reason. Next time you are looking for "pipeline construction companies," consider whether you need dry or wet utility pipeline contractors. Note, too, that oftentimes, they may be referred to as "underground" pipeline construction companies.
