Garver named to Top 50 Trenchless Engineering Firms list
For the second year in a row, Garver has been named to Trenchless Technology Magazine’s annual Top 50 Trenchless Engineering Firms list, which tracks revenue earned over the previous year from projects using trenchless technologies.
Coming in at No. 22, an improvement of 10 spots from last year’s ranking, Garver’s rapidly rising placement is a testament to the firm’s ongoing commitment to implementing customized, high quality trenchless pipeline construction and rehabilitation methods across nearly all of the firm’s service lines.
“It’s no surprise that Garver has continued to rise on this list,” said Infrastructure Practice Leader Jeff Maier, PE, who has more than two decades of experience with trenchless technologies and advanced pipeline condition assessment systems. “The wide-ranging versatility of these technologies, coupled with our ability to creatively apply them to a variety of projects, has been a winning strategy for us here at Garver – and has provided significant benefits to our clients.”
Trenchless technologies have become increasingly popular methods of efficiently inspecting and delivering critical infrastructure projects, from new installations to rehabilitation, often resulting in substantial cost savings and reduced disturbance to nearby businesses and residents.
Among the noteworthy projects delivered by Garver that involved trenchless technologies were the San Antonio Water System's (SAWS) sanitary sewer overflow and reduction program – which involved a variety of trenchless rehabilitation techniques – and cutting-edge structural manhole rehabilitation projects for the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority (ABCWUA) in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Although trenchless technologies are most often associated with Garver’s Water and Wastewater Team – namely, no-dig repair strategies for wastewater, storm water, and potable water pipeline projects – recent projects have spotlighted the technologies’ utility across a range of other applications.
Recently, Garver has partnered with GE Research and Garney Construction on the groundbreaking U.S. Department of Energy’s ARPA-E REPAIR research and development initiative, which has been tasked with developing a new and minimally invasive robotic system for the trenchless rehabilitation of in-service natural gas pipelines.
