Our familiarity with industry standards and best practices positions GTS as the premier choice for distribution pipeline design engineering and consulting.
Representative examples are detailed below under the “Key Projects” section to convey GTS’s expertise with distribution pipeline design.
Distribution Pipeline Design Project
GTS has engineered and designed several distribution pipeline replacement projects in Arizona to replace degrading plastic and steel pipe. The pipe replacements were primarily driven by potential integrity threats, including degrading PVC and Drisco M8000 plastic pipe, and CP issues on vintage steel pipe. Many of the pipe replacement projects were designed and constructed in a “grid” replacement format… Read More
Mobile Home Park Utility Upgrade Program
The California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) approved a program to convert master metered natural gas and electric utility services serving MHP communities to direct utility services. GTS has provided the completed scoping and gas design packages for over 90 MHPs across California ranging in size from a small rural park of 12 spaces to a large inner-city park of over 300. The scoping and design for each park included… Read More
