The sewer projects have ranged in size from 8 inches to 144 inches and included rehabilitation by trenchless technology. On several buried infrastructure projects, we have replaced traditional open trench pipeline construction with micro-tunneling and other trenchless methods, which have proven to be environmentally and economically advantageous. The treatment plant projects have included new grit, pumping, disinfection, primary treatment, secondary treatment, and solids handling facilities.

Our water experience has included water main replacement, extensions, and rehabilitation. Water main sizes have varied in size from 6 inches to 96 inches and have included ductile iron, steel, PVC and pre-stressed concrete piping. Other distribution experience includes water booster stations and storage tanks. Our treatment experience includes ground water and surface water treatment facilities with emphasis on disinfection, softening, and filtration processes.

Our concentration in the water/wastewater engineering field has enabled us to develop tremendous capability and ability in handling large complex water distribution, storage and treatment projects, as well as wastewater collection, pumping and treatment projects

Our prior experience also includes upgrading trip relays from electromechanical type to solid state type. Designs for power distribution cover a wide gamut and include entire treatment facilities, remote service buildings, pumping stations, individual processes, office buildings, libraries, and laboratories. Designs for motor control include controllers such as variable frequency drives, soft start motor starters, delta-wye transition starters, auto transformer starters, DC motor starters, across the line starters, and servo-motor controllers. On prior projects REG has conducted lighting evaluations to determine if lighting systems meet OSHA, IES, or LEED Standards.

Our instrumentation and controls experience includes the selection of monitoring equipment, controls design for specific processes and systems; development of system functional descriptions; and programming. Instrumentation applications can be designed for sophisticated process monitoring or the measurement of simple parameters such as flow, pressure, level, pH, etc. Control systems can be designed for HVAC equipment, machinery, pumping systems, material feed systems, production lines, lighting, and motors. Designs can be developed using relays, PLC controllers or computer controls and can include interface networks such as Ethernet, ControlNet, DeviceNet and Data Highway. REG has performed programming services for PLCs, OITs, VFDs and HMIs. Programs have been developed for specific applications using RSLogix5 and RSLogix5000, RSView, Panelbuilder, Wonderware, iFIX, DriveTools and Modicon.

Design deliverables for electrical and instrumentation services include single line drawings; schematic drawings; plan and elevation drawings; panel, conduit and cable schedules; load charts; motor control center layout; wiring diagrams; process and instrumentation diagrams, and loop diagrams.
