No matter if it’s a new residential development, industrial building, or commercial project, infrastructure will need to be put in place before major construction can begin. A major component of any infrastructure job is the sewer system.
With precast sewer pipes, you’ll save time, save money, and be confident that your sewer system will stand the test of time.
Advantages of precast concrete sewer pipes
Columbia Precast manufactures all of our products from within a secure facility, allowing us to control conditions during the casting process. From mixing the cement to filling the casts to strength testing, we’re able to maintain consistent quality in all of our products.
Every concrete sewer pipe we build is meant to last for up to 100 years. No other material has a combination of strength, durability, and cost-effectiveness that concrete offers. Clay pipes crack easily allowing for tree root intrusion, plastic is harder to maintain, and steel is a costly material with a shorter lifespan than concrete.
Precast concrete sewer pipes are also easy to install. Built to exact specifications, these pipes are also easy to tie into other sewer line components, such as catch basins or culverts. Once the excavation is complete, precast concrete is ready to be placed.
Once in place, concrete pipes are easy to maintain, too. Regardless of what material is used for sewer pipes, regular maintenance is a must. With concrete, however, all you’ll be dealing with is the standard cleaning service. Crumbling pipes, intruding tree roots, or failing sections will never be a concern.
Win More Bids with Columbia Precast sewer pipes
Using Columbia Precast Products for your sewer pipe needs may even save you money and help you when bidding for city or county projects. Using eco-friendly building practices is very important in the Pacific Northwest. In many cases, any job using public-sector financing must adhere to certain “green building” criteria.
We are the premier precast concrete company in the Pacific Northwest for that very reason. We were the first precast plant in the buried infrastructure nationwide to earn SMaRT certification. Our buried pipeline products achieved “Platinum” designation because of our use of natural materials, long life cycle, and chemically inert properties.
This certification means we are good for the environment and good for the economy. And that’s good for any company looking to secure government jobs. We check many of the boxes that major cities in the Pacific Northwest are looking for when accepting bids for infrastructure projects.
