Garver again rises on the Top 50 Trenchless Engineering Firms list
For the third year in a row, Garver has been named to Trenchless Technology Magazine’s annual Top 50 Trenchless Engineering Firms list, which tracks revenue earned by North American engineering companies over the previous year from projects using trenchless technologies. Garver came in at number 16, an improvement of six 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 the firm’s service lines.
“I’m certainly proud of this accomplishment, but not surprised that we’ve continued to improve our ranking on this list. Garver is at the forefront of trenchless technology, and nearly all of our service lines have successfully used these capabilities.”
Infrastructure Practice Leader
“I’m certainly proud of this accomplishment, but not surprised that we’ve continued to improve our ranking on this list,” said Garver’s Infrastructure Practice Leader Jeff Maier, PE, who has more than two decades of industry experience in the trenchless technology and advanced pipeline condition assessment sectors. “Garver is at the forefront of trenchless technology, and nearly all of our service lines have successfully used these capabilities.”
Because of the substantial cost savings and the reduced disturbance to nearby businesses or residents, trenchless technologies have become popular go-to methods for efficient inspection and delivery of critical infrastructure projects.
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, as well as design of a large diameter stormwater drain pipe rehabilitation project at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
Although trenchless technologies are most often associated with Garver’s Water and Wastewater Team – namely, no-dig repair and installation strategies for wastewater, storm water, and potable water pipeline projects – recent projects have spotlighted the technologies’ utility across a range of other applications within Garver’s Transportation and Aviation teams.
Additionally, 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.
