Utilities and Infrastructure

Water management is crucial for both commercial, municipal, and private development, as well as for utilities. Kolb Grading continues to support the project and infrastructure development linked with the gas and oil industries by offering its civil construction services to regions around the country. 

This goes hand in hand with Kolb’s industry-specific safety requirements, rigorous project timetables, and support for numerous client and project site demands.

Water, Wastewater and Stormwater

Kolb Grading has a significant portfolio of water management projects under its belt, working with recognized utility companies as well as private owners, installing solutions for all types of water management.

  • Water Pipeline
  • Cast-In-Place Structures
  • Security Grating
  • Low Span Bridges and Tunnels
  • Storm and Sanitary Pump Stations
Sanitary and Storm Pump Stations

Installation of pump station facilities is part of the service provided by Kolb. These facilities design and build water/wastewater solutions. They are frequently used in tandem with reservoirs, rivers, and wells and serve as a valuable part of Kolb’s toolkit.

Cast in Place Structures

Typically, on-site cast-in-place constructions are produced due to their size or shape. Kolb Grading has worked on preparing many cast-in-place constructions, including the Lambert International Airport in St. Louis. As part of the 2002 airport development, the runways were dredged, requiring Kolb Grading to deal with heightened security measures.

Bridges and Tunnels

Many of our projects involve the construction of bridges or tunnels that are used for both transportation and water purposes. We have bridges and tunnels for railroads, airports, highways, utilities, and private projects, all thanks to pre-cast concrete structures, box culverts or design-build.

HDPE Pipe Installation

We have worked on HDPE pipeline installations in the utility industry. We have trained our welding crew on all areas of field joining of HDPE pipe and fittings, and they have all been qualified in all those aspects. Our concentrated field-based heat fusion capabilities:

  • Socket Fusion
  • Butt Fusion
  • Saddle Fusion

Kolb Grading’s Vermeer T1255 was used to install HDPE pipeline on the Iowa Fertilizer project. The benefit of this highly specialized piece of equipment is that it performs multiple activities normally requiring additional machinery and manpower and is extremely useful in projects where blasting is not desirable. It works equally well in utility or energy large-diameter pipe installations or in deep sewer and water applications.
