Infrastructure Rehabilitation


Infrastructure Rehabilitation

We have worked with regional municipalities, first nations, utilites, and provincial and federal governments to rehabilitate and upgrade existing water, wastewater and drainage systems since GS’s inception in 1974.

Performing physical upgrades on infrastructure to restore it to an acceptable condition that’s conducive to operating standards. This infrastructure rehabilitation process, in turn, will also improve the operational efficiency of the infrastructure while extending its lifespan.

  • Replacing water, sanitary, and storm water infrastructure in older residential neighbourhoods to the property lines.
  • Upgrading and increasing the capacity of existing infrastructure to accomodate current and future growth.
  • Installing new water, sanitary and storm water facilities to accomodate current and future growth.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Infrastructure Rehabilitation?

Infrastructure rehabilitation refers to the process of repairing and upgrading existing infrastructure to extend its service life and improve its functionality. This can include a wide range of activities such as patching cracks, sealing leaks, reinforcing structural elements, upgrading materials, and implementing new technologies. The goal is to restore infrastructure to its original condition or better, ensuring it can continue to serve its intended purpose efficiently and safely.

Why is Infrastructure Rehabilitation Important?

Safety: Aging and damaged infrastructure can pose serious safety hazards. Rehabilitation helps mitigate these risks.

Cost-Effectiveness: Regular maintenance and rehabilitation can be more cost-effective in the long run compared to the expense of emergency repairs or complete replacements.

Sustainability: By extending the life of existing infrastructure, rehabilitation reduces the need for new construction, conserving resources and minimizing environmental impact.

Reliability: Infrastructure rehabilitation ensures that essential services like water supply, sewage, and drainage systems remain reliable and efficient, preventing disruptions to daily life and business operations.
