Milhouse delivers reliable, competitive engineering and design services to natural gas providers nationwide. Our team began its work in the natural gas industry in 2012 and now serves a diverse roster of utility clients, including Atlanta Gas Light Resources (AGL), Nicor Gas, Peoples Gas, NIPSCO, and Ameren.
Gas utilities serve more than 68 million residential customers and more than 5 million commercial enterprises. Natural gas is delivered to customers through a 2.4-million-mile underground pipeline system that includes 2.1 million miles of local utility distribution pipes and 300,000 miles of transmission lines. With many of these systems aging and in need of replacement, the management of system integrity in the natural gas industry is more important now than ever.
Milhouse is a natural partner for gas utilities. Our engineers understand gas industry standards and each client’s specific design criteria. We are dedicated to working with our clients and the local municipalities which they serve, to create compliant and cost-effective design solutions.
Our expertise in a range of complementary infrastructure practices, such as environmental, tunnels, highways, and water/wastewater, means we can assemble diverse teams to help solve project challenges that might sometimes fall outside the routine for gas utilities. Our specialties include design solutions for multi-year programs to remove and replace cast iron and bare steel main from the existing gas distribution system, as well as designs for relocation and new business.
In 2015, we provided design solutions for the replacement of over 50 miles of distribution gas main, doubling our capacity from the previous year. Our team offers experience in high and low pressure systems; uprating systems for pressure improvements; horizontal and directional drilling; vault/tin replacement; meter set design; and public improvement projects.
