This straw-made material is typically used as part of Best Management Practices, a.k.a. "BMP's." A straw wattle has several uses: it captures inlet sedimentation; generally prevents sedimentation runoff in active construction jobsites; works as a check dam; diverts flow and
For wet utility pipeline construction installations, HDPE is typically a black in color and corrugated. It varies in size. Here it is being installed in a pipeline construction project.
An I-Beam has several names, "double-T", "UB" or "Universal Beam", "RSJ" or "Rolled Steel Joist", "W-Beam" meaning "wide" flange. Mostly, it gets is name because it looks like the shape of the capital letter "I." It is usually made of
Engineered shoring is necessary to prevent trench collapse, which is specifically required whenever trench excavations are 20 feet or deeper. Engineered shoring varies from project to project and is specifically designed to accommodate the type of installation that would be
This is basically metal corrugated metal pipe (or "CMP") which has been specifically designed, or "squashed" to meet certain water retainage requirements of a construction project. After it has been squashed, it is considered a pipe arch for its "arch"
This soil penetrometer is a tool used to test cohesiveness of soil during the excavation process. To learn more, read our blog about pipeline trenching and various ways to test soil types which helps determine the best shoring methods to
Pictured here is a welder joining two pieces of CML&C steel waterline pipe.
This is a section of one of the ends of a 20" cement-mortar-lined and coated steel pipe main.
Orange colored pipe is typically made of vitrified clay pipe (VCP) material and is a prime indicator that this pipeline is a sewer-specific wet utility pipeline system.
Wet utility contractors, like Kana Pipeline, can install water pipeline, sewer and storm drainage systems. Here, Kana Pipeline is digging with an excavator to install sewer pipeline for a new building add-on to an existing building.
This is the spoil of soil collected underground in the adjacent bore pit. Pipeline construction crews are working to bore and tunnel an 84" steel pipeline casing underneath railroad tracks that cross this pipeline at a perpendicular angle. Within this
A muck bowl is a term used in construction boring and tunneling operations for the container that carries excess soil from underground pipeline tunneling operations.
