Since August 2015, Hill International has worked on behalf of the City of Cleveland for Dominion Energy’s Pipeline Infrastructure Replacement (PIR) program. Hill is providing program management, construction management, construction inspection, professional engineering, and arborist services for the $2 billion, 25-year PIR program, which involves upgrading more than 5,500 miles of Dominion’s existing bare-steel, cast iron, wrought iron, and copper pipe to coated steel or plastic pipe. This transition will provide Cleveland with a more durable and corrosion-resistant gas network in compliance with U.S. Department of Transportation regulations.
The PIR program involves coordinating many concurrent projects throughout the city, each of which involves intensive scheduling, permitting, site visits, and coordination with impacted residents, businesses, and other utilities. After pipe replacement, Hill oversees teams repairing streets and sidewalks and replanting any impacted greenery. Throughout the PIR program, Hill provides a full suite of management support to help assure the success of individual projects. Despite the program’s extensive management requirements, Hill has supported the successful delivery of more than 430 PIR projects to date, totaling more than 260 miles of gas line and more than 5,200,000 million SF of new sidewalk.
