From water distribution lines to process piping to wastewater system construction, our experienced mechanical construction crews make communities better by building sanitary water and wastewater utilities projects. When completed and in place, water infrastructure projects are expected to meet 100% uptime due to the manner in which failures become repetitive in the fluids processing space. In order to prevent repetitive nuisances in the future, DCG’s crews ensure the infrastructure is installed correctly during the construction phase. Between our veteran leaders and a team of experienced supervisors with decades of experience, you can trust us to play the role of a strategic business partner to manage project completion to move fluids the way your system was designed.
On complex utilities projects, DCG’s primary deliverable is experience and agile solutions for clients who need more than just a pipe-liner. We often work with municipalities with tight budgets or funding from government agencies with strict contract administration requirements such as USDA, FEMA, etc. Water districts that have been able to secure grants sometimes means that they have crumbling infrastructure and a dire need to bring their systems up to code. DCG is outfitted to perform municipal, state, and federally backed water and sewer utility projects with literally hundreds of years of combined experience in this space. We have successfully installed various sizes and types of pipe material, including: Fiberglass, Ductile Iron, PVC, Steel, Concrete, High Density Polyethylene, and others. Hot taps, street cuts, and traffic control each represent a unique challenge on every public utility project. DCG’s crews expect to have issues arise and will take on these challenges directly, as opposed to hoping for change orders.
DRINKING WATER SUPPLY WELLS
In order to keep up with population growth, drinking water supply districts must develop new infrastructure to maintain enough supply for the increased demand. DCG strives to serve the drilling operations and transmission of potable water to new MUDs. DCG takes the approach of a general contractor for these projects, yet self performs heavy civil and wet utility work. This enables us to streamline construction schedules by integrating the overlapping trades with goals that are more closely aligned than multiple contractors working parallel. Teams with similarly aligned goals work to increase processes so every project runs more smoothly and reduces delays.
DCG is carving out a niche in the water treatment space because of the internal skillset and resource strength of the company, making us well suited to perform in this space due to the required capital, time, and project management abilities. Water treatment is an equipment intensive and inherently expensive endeavor. Plant upgrades involve improvements to aging mechanical and electrical components which means the contractor will encounter unforeseen conditions. In a competitive bid environment, contractors need to account for the unique qualities of secondary and tertiary treatment processes within the engineer’s new scope. Plant work is also unique in that whole systems must be brought online as quickly as possible with minimal downtime in the interim. DCG takes pride in performing work that enhances water quality for communities of all sizes and means.
