Our projects speak for themselves

Aquia Force Main & Waterline

Not all of our pipe installations are underground. This project required crossing an existing bridge with a sanitary sewer force main and a waterline. After setting up a pump around system to ensure no residences lost service, we were able to install the pipe alongside the bridge using pipe hangers. Safety is always our top priority and special precautions were taken on this project to ensure our crew members made it home safely each night.


Claiborne Run Sewer Public Infrastructure

42” P401 ductile iron pipe was the star of this Sanitary Sewer project. Installed at 20’+ depths running along Claiborne Run Creek and through the CSX right-of-way. It’s safe to say this project was not for the faint of heart. W.C. Spratt took this challenging project “head on” and exceeded the Counties expectations. Other aspects of this project included a 60” steel casing pipe micro-tunnel operation underneath an active CSX railway, an 1,800 LF bypass pumping system, and a 75’ bridge structure.


Route 1 North Sewer Improvements

This project consisted of upgrading the existing 12” sanitary sewer with 4,000 LF of 30” ductile Iron pipe and 17 manholes. Key components included a 600 LF micro-tunneling operation to install 48” steel casing pipe. The project required over 2,000 LF of sanitary pump around. Depths of installation along with the proximity to the stream and Route 1 made this project a true challenge. Our crews navigated these challenges with ease as they completed another successful project for Stafford County.


Vint Hill Public Street Network– Phase I

We were excited to work on the former Army and NSA base near Warrenton to demo 45,000 SY of outdated roadways and parking lots and build new infrastructure including 9,800 LF of roadway. The project had 60,000 CY of excavation; over 4 miles of water, sanitary and storm pipe; 18,000 LF of curbs; over 14,000 tons of CTA and 11,000 tons of asphalt paving. Sidewalks and trails were welcome amenities for local users. A groovy roundabout improved traffic flow and this new roadway network improves connectivity for the public and planned future growth.


988 Hospital Point Sewer

A gravity sewer replacement project very close to the Potomac River not to mention beneath many different buried utilities. Since the work was over 30’ deep on the USMC base in Quantico, we elected to use a trenchless method using HDD. Despite a myriad of soils conditions, the project was completed without disruption to existing utilities and to the complete satisfaction of the Navy.
