Everybody has heard that the real estate sector is hot right now, but what does that have to do with pipelines?
Real estate markets drive the development industry. As the development industry continues to grow at unprecedented rates, this means that the risk of damage and encroachment for pipeline infrastructure is also growing.
We recognize that our clients have an urgent and critical need for Class Location Predictive Assessments to understand how upcoming development will impact their infrastructure or trigger a class upgrade. Operators want to know where and when short and long range development plans within the class assessment area will occur, and need to know when a class upgrade will be needed.
Since 2019, ProACTIVE Planning has completed over 110 Class Location Predictive Assessments, totaling over 10,000 kilometers of infrastructure in urban and rural areas across Canada. Our reporting has caught over 9,000 new and future dwellings within the class assessment area of our clients’ infrastructure. We have also identified over 200 urban development projects and over 100 major transportation and utility projects that may also have damage and class implications.
We are here to help our clients with CER class filing requirements related to new development and to support class location obligations of CSA Z662-19. To learn more about this service or ProACTIVE’s other solutions for pipeline operators, please get in touch with us and we’d be happy to work with you!
