SAFE. EFFICIENT. RESULTS.
Since our beginning in 1981, we’ve completed hundreds utility construction projects for various clients across the state of North Carolina. From planning to closeout, our goal is always to improve the function and appearance of the infrastructure while maintaining the highest standards of quality and safety. We constantly strive to exceed the expectations of each and every customer. Below are some examples of our work.

Boshamer Stadium Emergency Storm Repair
Chapel Hill, NC
This UNC-CH project included emergency repair/replacement of a failing stormwater line under UNC’s baseball field. It involved a 30-foot deep trench with shoring to install 300-feet of 72-inch reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) bedded on rock. Stadium renovations were conducted concurrently with this project which restricted the amount of space available to perform the work, as well as required the work to be performed in a short amount of time as not to affect the renovations to the field.
UNC-CH Cogen Steam Tunnel Replacement
Chapel Hill, NC
The UNC steam tunnel replacement project involved constructing over 2,000 linear feet of new underground cast-in-place concrete tunnel to replace an existing walkable tunnel dating to 1939 with major structural failure and asbestos insulation as well as and an accessible tunnel built in 1987. This new tunnel provides low- and high-pressure steam (40/150 PSIG) and pumped condensate piping. A unique challenge on this project was the close proximity of residential neighbors to the construction site – sometimes only feet away from the trench.
Little Creek Interceptor Replacement
Chapel Hill, NC
Included 1,200 linear feet of 16-inch ductile iron gravity sewer with manholes. A stream crossing was required to make the tie-in to the pump station piping.
