Pipe Services Corporation was founded by Andy Martin, P.E. and Roger Gottschalk in 1984. Roger served as vice president and field services manager until 2002 when he sold his interest in the business and retired. Andy served as president and CFO until 2007 when he sold his interest in the business to Kerry Blaisdell. Subsequent to his sale of ownership, Andy continued to work with Pipe Services Corporation on a part-time or consulting basis until 2009.

“We were looking for a way to better utilize the data that came from CCTV field inspections. Pipe Services Corporation was willing to devote the extra time and energy to help us streamline the process of importing the inspection data into Cityworks- our asset management system and ArcGIS. Pipe Services used the NASSCO PACP process and software which allowed us to automatically color code pipes based on calculated condition rating. No more three ring binders, scrolling through tapes to review inspection information! Public works and Engineering have access to all sewer inspection data from their desktop, simply turn on the layer of  information in the ArcGIS project, point and click to get streaming video, complete inspection information, list of observations and click on observation (on the map)  to see still photo of problem. We can add layers for pavement condition, and water main breaks, and now this becomes a tool for planning the future work, saving both time and money for a community. Today when it is time for televising, we create a GIS project folder complete with sewer, parcel, street, and imagery- provide this information to Pipe Services and they import it into their system, and they are ready to start televising. This streamlined process provides greater efficiency and greater value. Pipe Services is great to work with and we appreciate the extra time they spent working through the process. The results are incredible.”

At WSB, we’re always looking for opportunities to help our clients better manage their information, so we were excited when Pipe Services came to us with an idea to significantly improve the quality of sewer inspection data.  The process involved using certified PACP reporting along with a software program that could convert the inspection data into a usable database for importing into our clients’ GIS systems. The end result was a cost-effective process that integrates PACA data with GIS and Asset Management systems, providing our client with added value that is easily recognizable.

“Hey, just an FYI. Below is a link to an article I wrote about how we used GIS to access the sewer videos. It was recently published in the Minnesota GIS/LIS Newsletter”
