3 Ways Technology Is Propelling Underground Infrastructure

3 Ways Technology Is Propelling Underground Infrastructure

Tags : 

Technological advancements are changing the world in almost every industry and even in people’s daily lives. In the construction industry, this is no different, especially with respect to underground infrastructure. Not only is underground infrastructure more sustainable than above-ground options, but it also is becoming less expensive due to technology. If you were considering underground infrastructure for your next building project, here are some ways that technology is making the choice easier than ever.

1. Upgraded Piping Materials

One of the biggest issues plaguing existing underground infrastructure is age. Cement, cast iron, and clay pipes laid decades ago are starting to reach the end of their useful life due to corrosion, cracking, and other issues. And with over half of water mains across the country built from these materials, upgrades are necessary.

Thankfully, the prevalence of PVC pipe has changed the game. This type of pipe is impervious to corrosion while also offering a life span of 100 to 125 years. Once installed, you never have to worry about replacing this part of underground infrastructure for the remainder of your life.

2. Improved Tunneling Techniques

Tunneling techniques have also propelled underground infrastructure to new levels, reducing costs and allowing pipes to fit into areas that were once thought impossible. Perhaps even more interesting is that these techniques limit damage to the surrounding area or above ground. Where old technology might have caused sinkholes or structural issues, modern tunneling techniques provide a low-risk option for laying water and utility pipes beneath the surface of the soil.

3. AI and Sensors Create Underground Maps

Another major issue that has proved an issue in the past is creating tunnels and pathways to properly accommodate underground pipes and utilities. Improper digging or digging unnecessarily caused over $30 billion in damages in 2021 alone. Moreover, another issue isn’t exactly a lack of places to put pipes, but rather, how to do it without interrupting traffic or damaging plant life or other above-ground infrastructure.

Fortunately, artificial intelligence (AI) and sensors have made this process that much easier. Israeli-based company Exodigo is at the forefront of this technology. Using a system based on AI and sensors that can reach up to 10 meters below ground, Exodigo can create a map of the underground infrastructure. The map is then superimposed over a satellite image of the above-ground infrastructure to determine the feasibility of a particular project.

These sensors also bring non-invasive technology, using drones to map the area while also “seeing” below the surface. While the technology is still in its relative infancy, it could become a game-changer in the future of the industry.

EPS Engineering in the Bay Area is relied upon by residents, businesses, and municipalities to complete the most complex underground infrastructure projects.  For multiple decades, we’ve served our community, our references speak for themselves.

While underground infrastructure may still remain a bit more expensive than outdated alternatives, the gap in costs continues to close. So, whether you’re a prospective homeowner, a project manager, or part of local government, considering underground infrastructure is a step in the right direction. Just make sure you contact us and schedule a consultation to discuss your upcoming project.

With EPS Engineering, you’ll have infrastructure that’s longer-lasting and with fewer complications than other alternatives.

How Underground Infrastructure Is Leading to Sustainability

How Underground Infrastructure Is Leading to Sustainability

Tags : 

If you’ve ever been to an underdeveloped country, you may have seen the horrors of above-ground infrastructure. Wires hang haphazardly above crowded city streets, seemingly ready to start a catastrophe should they fall or be hit by bad weather.

But in the U.S., rules and regulations provide a basis for safety and how to do jobs correctly. The major difference here isn’t with safety; it has to do with space and sustainability. As urban and suburban areas continue to grow, issues with sustainability continuously mount. And that’s what underground infrastructure aims to solve. By putting pipes, wires, and utilities underground, municipalities, business owners, and even homeowners are lending a hand in responsible planning and sustainability.

Why Is Sustainable Infrastructure Important?

At the onset of rapid industrialization around the beginning of the 20th century, not much was known about the effects of urban planning or pollution. Factories were built next to housing and little was done to ensure that the factory wasn’t polluting water or poisoning the local populace.

Fast-forward over a century later, and everything humanity has discovered about air pollution, noise pollution, overcrowding, and even green areas has created a desire for sustainability. As the population continues to grow and people continue to build, sustainable infrastructure, and in particular underground infrastructure becomes vital.

Why Many Municipalities Are Turning to Underground Infrastructure

Despite major advancements in underground infrastructure and construction, many municipalities have widely ignored it. Why? Simply due to budgetary constraints and the urge to save money.

But over time, above-ground infrastructure starts to create problems. It fails due to severe weather, creates traffic disruptions, and leads to noise and possibly air pollution problems.

Yet as public opinion changes, so do cities’ desire to weigh the cost vs. benefit of underground infrastructure. By putting wires and pipes underground, the “out of sight, out of mind” idea couples with more effective ways to improve quality of living.

What once was thought unbuildable due to money is now being replaced with the thought of city beautification and a more aesthetically pleasing place to live. And with fewer repairs necessary as underground infrastructure ages, it’s more sustainable in the long run in terms of feasibility and cost.

And in many communities, perhaps the final hurdle has been cleared. Many politicians and planners have started to create sustainable development goals, or SDGs, that include underground infrastructure. Due to this level of planning, underground infrastructure becomes part of a greater plan to sustainability, which in turn, leads to more opportunities to apply it.

Underground Infrastructure Is Only as Good as the Contractor You Hire

Underground infrastructure undeniably is leading to sustainability, but as a business owner, homeowner, or project manager, infrastructure is only as good as the company you hire. And that’s why you should contact EPS Engineering as your professional firm.  With on-the-job experience, the equipment necessary to get the job done, and a professional staff, our underground infrastructure team is the best way to get the work done on time and under budget.

Do you have a project planned? or want to discuss future plans?  Give Nick Bechwati a call to discuss our firm’s portfolio and learn more about what’s possible.

Why Your Dream Home Needs Proper Underground Infrastructure

Why Your Dream Home Needs Proper Underground Infrastructure

Tags : 

Cookie-cutter homes have been popular throughout the United States for over 70 years. For developers, creating the same home over and over again was a cost-cutting measure, especially for consumers that were more worried about leaving the city than residential architecture.

But tastes and times have changed. While a generic home used to be popular among homebuyers, the desire for something that’s unique and custom-built often trumps the idea of merely buying a home. So if you’ve ever dreamed of building your dream home, you aren’t alone. And while picking the right spot and choosing the right plans are integral, don’t forget about one often overlooked aspect: underground infrastructure.

Why Underground Infrastructure Matters

You probably don’t think about underground infrastructure when you flick a light switch, flush your toilet, or turn on the sink. But all of this revolves around your underground infrastructure. By building these subterranean lines, you avoid the unsightly wires that plague above-ground infrastructure.

So unless you want a jungle of wires connected to your house, underground infrastructure is essential. Plus, there’s nothing worse about building your dream home than having it draped in wires and ruining the ambiance and aesthetic of the property you’ve worked so hard to create.

How to Assess a Lot for Proper Underground Infrastructure

One you’ve found a lot that appeals to you, assessing it for proper underground infrastructure installation is ideal. Soil and the water table are two crucial aspects of the inspection. If the water table is too high, you risk constant flooding, as well as possible damage to your underground pipes.

The type and hardness of the soil are also of the utmost concern. The ground has to be sturdy enough to support the home, but it also must be soft enough that digging out the soil for the foundation and underground infrastructure is attainable. As a result, make sure to hire a contractor with the ability to assess the soil before you buy.

Choosing the Right Contractor for Your Underground Infrastructure

Now that you have the lot, the blueprints, and the permits, the next step is to find the right contractor for the job. Unfortunately, not all contractors are created equal. You need to find one that has:

  • The right equipment for the job, whether they own it or can reasonably rent it
  • The most experience possible
  • A staff or team with a proven track record and expertise in the field

EPS Engineering a division of Express Plumbing is your underground infrastructure contractor in the Bay Area.  Equipped and staffed to handle any size project from blueprint to reality. 

In many cases, the lot you choose will have easy hookups to water, electric, and waste. But if you decide to build in a rural area or something further away from neighborhoods and people, underground infrastructure becomes an essential part of your plans for a dream home.

So, before you buy or build, make sure you partner with us in order to assess the feasibility and costs of the project. The success, budget, and your love of the home all depends on it.

To discuss future or upcoming projects, or to learn more, contact our owner Nick Bechwati directly.  We are a hands-on company, he is involved in every aspect of project planning to long after the project is done.

We will support you as you turn your dream into a reality, consider us your civil engineering partner in the Bay Area.

What is Heavy Construction?

Tags : 

Heavy construction is a subset of the construction industry geared toward larger structures. Because of the amount of engineering and project management that goes into heavy construction, specialized equipment and highly experienced individuals are part of the successful completion of a project. In many cases, these are municipal and government projects. So how should companies and government entities plan for large-scale heavy construction? Read on to find out.

Heavy Construction Planning: The First Step of a Successful Project

Before starting any heavy construction project, planning is essential. This multistep process starts with a project initiation document or PID. This preliminary document estimates the cost of the project (budget), the necessary materials to complete the project, and how many workers are required. Without this document, construction firms cannot conduct a feasibility test of whether the project is profitable or doable.

EPS Inc. has been serving our municipal, commercial and residential clients for multiple decades. Our experience, manpower and equipment availability gives us the ability to be price when planning a heavy construction project. We are the Bay Area heavy construction company of choice for many municipality projects due to our commitment to quality and excellence.

Once the construction company drafts a PID, it moves on to more specific estimates of the resources required, as well as technical portions of the project. Using the PID, a more accurate and specific plan comes together, as well as a strategy to complete the project under these rubrics. Many times, construction software eases this complex step and crunches numbers to provide the information for a proposal or presentation.

Equipment and Manpower for Heavy Construction

Determining the equipment and manpower for a heavy construction project isn’t always easy. Volatility in economic conditions and other situations can cause variability. In this regard, estimates may change.

However, the initial step of project planning can provide a solid estimate for the amount of equipment and manpower. A formulaic approach can help determine this number, as well as past projects. The idea is that a company with more experience in municipal and large-scale construction projects is more apt to provide a concrete idea for these numbers.

In addition, heavy construction firms must make seemingly smaller decisions that have a huge impact on a project. This includes aspects such as:

  • Whether to lease, buy, or use already purchased equipment
  • What subcontractors to hire
  • Whether to hire temporary personnel to meet the demand of the project
  • Where to buy wholesale materials
  • Other logistical considerations

By determining these needs, a heavy construction project can move forward without any hiccups. In this regard, trade magazines and journals are a vital resource to limit the amount of overhead and get the best workers for the job. Experienced firms may already have a team of suppliers and workers assembled to limit the chances for sunk costs.

Beyond these vital aspects, heavy construction companies must also devote a portion of their efforts to contingency plans. Few projects of this scale will proceed without a hitch. Therefore, a contingency or emergency plan can prevent a bleeding of resources and cash flow.

By choosing a company that has the necessary manpower, machinery, and expertise to finish a heavy construction project, governmental organizations and private builders can avoid any headaches during the process. With a well-constructed building delivered on time and under budget, all parties can enjoy the result of planning and project management.

When you rely on our EPS team, you’re in good hands. From manpower to equipment availability and experience. We get the job done! Contact us with any heavy construction project you’re planning, and we’ll be glad to assist you from start to finish.

Local Infrastructure and Municipal Underground Projects Continue During the Covid-19 Shelter in Place

Tags : 

Businesses across the country have suspended their operations due to the Covid-19 outbreak, and many more have cut their staff to all but essential workers. However, local infrastructure and municipal underground projects can’t slow or stop as a result.

Residents of these areas need the infrastructure and underground utilities during shelter-in-place orders, and municipalities are forced to continue their workload in the face of danger and adversity. Thanks to the selfless work of these individuals and government planning, none of the essential services that people need will halt as a result of Covid-19.

Underground Sewer

Underground sewer systems are among the most important services to residents during the Covid-19 pandemic, especially as these services come under strain due to more usage. Fortunately, underground sewer repair and other projects will continue during the outbreak to ensure that these services continue uninterrupted.

Although there’s little evidence to support that Covid-19 can spread through sewer systems, protecting against sewage backups remains crucial. Many residents may find that a sewage overflow may cause problems, specifically because of the lack of cleaning supplies as a result of panic buying.

Therefore, municipal workers will continue to monitor sewer systems, build new lines when necessary, and conduct repairs. These projects will also follow all current mandates and safety procedures to keep workers and residents safe.

Utilities

Although utilities supply the power necessary to curb cabin fever and reduce boredom, they also play a vital role in the everyday lives of citizens, especially during the Covid-19 outbreak. Without gas, power, internet, and telephone lines, the ability for people to cook, work remotely, or contact family members and emergency services becomes compromised.

During the Covid-19 shelter-in-place requirement, municipal crews continue their normal routines. This will include the inspection of all above-ground and underground utility lines, as well as any repairs necessary due to weather, wear and tear, or any other type of issue. Like other businesses, these workers will apply social distancing guidelines and other protocols designed to minimize the spread of Covid-19 to coworkers or other members of the general public.

Emergency Pipe Replacements

Pipe repair and pipe replacement are two essential services that homeowners and renters need to survive and maintain their quality of life during the coronavirus pandemic. Without fully functioning pipes, water systems, and other utilities can be rendered useless. When pipes fail, it can create a catastrophic scenario, especially for customers who are confined to their home for the near future.

Municipalities understand the importance and maintenance of pipes. As a result, they continue to put crews to work, albeit with safety guidelines in place. Thanks to the efforts of these workers, everyone affected by Covid-19 can enjoy uninterrupted services and maintain their way of life as long as possible, despite the challenges posed by coronavirus.

Through planning and strict safety guidelines imposed by municipalities, residents can enjoy the services they need to make life easier during the Covid-19 pandemic. In these times of uncertainty, having these services will at least provide a bit of consolation and reassurance.

EPS Inc. has been a partner of Bay Area municipalities for multiple decades, we want to honor those that continue to serve during these difficult times facing our nation and are proud to support their efforts on municipal infrastructure projects whenever and wherever they need us.

Service Feeders – Overhead Utility Lines vs Underground Utility Lines

Tags : 

Since the introduction of electric power transmission lines in 1889, overhead utilities have been the standard for all types of services. Electricity, phone, cable, and internet are all pumped into residential and commercial buildings via utility poles. But with the advent of underground digging and trenchless technology, utility companies and municipalities have begun to see the advantages of underground power. While both have their advantages, underground utility and power lines are quickly becoming the gold standard in the industry.

Overhead Utilities

Overhead utility lines are service feeders strung atop large poles. Measuring 30- to 60-feet in height, buried 6 feet below the surface, and made of wood, these poles are manufactured to withstand severe weather and inadvertent collisions from automobiles.

Feeder wires from these utility poles are then connected to your home through masts on the roof or the side of your home. Because these feeder wires are suspended in the air, they don’t interfere with anything on the ground. However, they are vulnerable to ice, falling tree limbs, and other inclement weather because of their exposure to the elements.

Underground Utilies

The service provider still uses utility poles to run underground utility lines, but instead of suspending them above ground, they run a pipe underground. Workers then push feeder wire through these underground pipes and into a transformer, which acts as an intermediary between the power source and your home. The feeder lines are installed into one side of the transformer, while the other side features cables that connect to your electric meter and circuit breaker.

Unlike overhead utility lines, underground utility lines aren’t exposed to weather that can cause severe damage. Utility companies also clearly mark these lines so that homeowners or construction crews don’t accidentally damage them when running trenches for other utilities, digging water fixtures, or landscaping. The result is a cleaner look and a reduced chance of damage that can take days or weeks to fix.

Advantages of Underground Utility Lines

Aside from less exposure to weather, underground utility lines have numerous other advantages. Underground power lines have extended reach due to less voltage drop. Voltage drop is a decrease in electrical potential, which is lessened by underground power lines because of lower reactance, or the impedance of a circuit.

Although overhead utility lines are more affordable to install — by many estimates, up to 80% cheaper — underground utility lines offset this through lower maintenance costs. With little repair work needed during heavy storms and no extraneous costs such as tree trimming, underground utilities often pay for themselves within a few years.

Transitioning from Overhead to Underground Service Feeders

In densely populated areas and new subdivisions, many builders and municipalities are turning to underground service feeders or transitioning from overhead to underhead. This minimally invasive service only requires workers to dig a small hole near the home and one near the utility pull. Using a trenchless boring machine, they can run the utility lines from the service pole to the home in just a few hours.

With so many advantages over overhead service feeders, underground service feeders are the next wave in how utility companies and local governments power homes. No other type of installation process offers streamlined service that protects the curb appeal of homes and their ability to get the power they need.

Join our Bay Area Water Conservation Efforts – Tips for the Family

Tags : 

By now, parents throughout the country are relieved from the “back-to-school” rush.  Our Bay Area water conservation efforts have been implemented since we started in 1989.

As the #1 referred and preferred Bay Area plumbing contractor.  Our company is family owned and operated, we love the community we serve and always want to educate on preventative measures and tips to save our environment and save money for our clients.

Probably, the the last thing on your mind right now is water conservation, but we must remember the importance of saving water for our environment, and if that doesn’t interest you, how about saving money for yourself along the way?

Use these tips to make water conservation a fun learning experience for the kids, and something that will teach them good habits that last them a lifetime.

 

Water Conservation at Home

Must the faucet stay on the entire time while their brushing their teeth?  Once the brush and toothpaste is in their mouth, the average brushing time is two minutes.  Teach kids to shut off the faucet while brushing their teeth, this will save water and a hefty penny on your water bill

Conserve Water at School

Hygiene is a very important part of not spreading infectious diseases at school, remind kids to wash their hands before and after recess or anytime they eat, but also remind them to shut off the faucet while they’re scrubbing their hands.

This will help in the effort of conserving H2O and will quickly become a habit they follow at home.

Make the learning experience fun and rewarding.  It’s not a matter of you “have to do this” but “you should because”.

Discuss the details with the children and allow them to participate in these efforts that will help our environment and their future.

Debora Bekins, a Bay Area residential plumbing client said to one of our plumbers in San Francisco “I took my kids to the aquarium, and explained to them how important it is to keep our environment clean and healthy so we can enjoy things like this.  We wouldn’t want all these fish not to have water anymore, would we?”

That might be a little drastic, but not far off.  Whatever works for you and your family, do it.  Get the kids involved in your efforts and they’ll be so excited to share with their friends and teachers at school.

Water Conservation Tips for Mom and Dad

Set a good example by following the same instructions given to the kids

Fix leaks quickly and don’t let them get worse.  We are a 24 hour plumber!

Water your lawn early morning or late evening

Remember to turn off the sprinklers on rainy day

Go to a car wash that recycles water instead of washing it in the driveway

Don’t run the washing machine and dishwasher until they’re completely full

According to the EPA, the average American family uses more than 300 gallons of water per day per home.

If you implement these small water saving tips at home, you will not only be helping the environment but will also see a drastic change in your water bill.

“Maybe you could use the savings to take a trip with the kids to the aquarium or somewhere to enjoy the beautiful nature we so well need to protect and preserve.”

Let’s share and keep this conversation going.  Do you use any other methods of conservation? We would love to hear from you and share it with others in our Bay Area community.
