I want to commend BLD Services and particularly Robert Odom for the service lateral lining work that was recently conducted in Belle Meade. Robert and the entire BLD crew did a fantastic job not only in the quality of work, but also in communicating with residents to ensure everyone was well aware of the status of the work being done. Impacted homeowners often must contact the Public Works department for information and Robert’s constant communication with those residents impacted prevented such inquiries to the Public Works Department.
Mount Pleasant Waterworks Section Repair and Lateral Linings: “We had a communication cable drilled through our 8” gravity line that was over 12’ deep and under a major roadway. The damage to the pipe was completely through both sides and approximately 5” in diameter on each side. We contracted with BLD to install a trenchless sectional repair to save us from open cutting for a point repair. BLD removed the cable remotely, performed the sectional repair and stopped heavy ground water infiltration; we estimate the total was 200,000 gallons per day.
The job was a success with no open cutting of the road and the infiltration completely removed.
BLD also completed 3 lateral linings for us that removed approximately 43,000 gallons per day. The 3 laterals were deep and would have been difficult to make point repairs on.”
“BLD has been a key member of our sewer rehabilitation team for several years. Their staff has been professional and have helped us reach our goals of significantly reducing our I/I. The quality of their workmanship and the finished product have been excellent and they have provided a key component in what has been a very successful program with significant results for the work that has been completed. We plan to continue to include them as part of our team and have already planned out work which they will be continue to performing in our 5 year capital plan.”
“BLD Services has been working as a contractor in Jefferson Parish for more than 9 years. During this period, BLD’s Underground Construction division has done a wide variety of projects that have included the rebuilding of pump stations, point repairs, installation and rehabilitation of manholes/catch basins, and directional drilling. BLD’s Trenchless Rehabilitation division has successfully installed hundreds of their CIPP laterals within the Parish. The CIPP laterals that BLD currently uses have been installed since the early 1990’s, previously by Insituform, thus resulting in thousands of successfully installed CIPP laterals throughout Jefferson Parish. BLD’s quality of work, timeliness of completion, and professionalism of their employees has been nothing but exceptional. Jefferson Parish is more than satisfied to have BLD as a contractor working in our Parish.”
