Municipal And Infrastructure Gas System Construction And Maintenance
BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), Hayward, California
After performing a Gas Leak Inspection Survey of all the BART maintenance facilities in the Bay Area, MBS was tasked with replacing approximately 2,000 linear feet of underground gas piping. MBS utilized a number of methods to replace this piping to make the job as efficient and cost-effective as possible. MBS was able to use Gas Line Slitting for a portion of the project, a trenchless method that slits the existing pipe, pulling the new pipe through to replace at the same location. MBS also used open trenching, completing a large portion of work over two weekends (over 800 LF) due to the parking obstructions. A portion of the gas line was also re-routed due to underground obstructions, with MBS devising a plan to route piping up and over a building to tie-in to a hard to reach location. Completed Mid May 2019 – July 2019
