Project Profiles:


Major Road Rebuild and Gas Main Replacement

A municipality awarded a multi-million dollar contract to completely reconstruct over one mile of roadway in an urban area. Work included grade changes, water main improvements, drainage, and new curbs and sidewalks. The Gas Utility in the area took advantage of this work to reinforce their systems by replacing over 5,000 feet of gas main, saving all paving restoration costs. This work required near full-time inspection in which the utility could not provide. They turned to Wagner Energy Services Inc. to provide this service. Wagner Energy Services inspectors ensured the work was done properly, safely, and in a timely manner, so as not to delay the municipality’s contractor.  In addition, this work was done without a single contractor damage incident in over a year of construction, as Wagner Energy Services ensured the contractors compliance with local “Call before you Dig” laws.


Gas Expansion Program

A gas utility recently embarked on a major gas expansion project providing new service to several hundred customers. This work required the extension of miles of gas main, as well as hundreds of new services to their customers. Not having a dedicated inspection staff, the utility contracted Wagner Energy Services Inc. to provide coverage on this work. Wagner Energy Services Inc. Inspectors have experience, professional training, and the know-how to get the job done right and to the standards of the gas utility.
