Gravity is here to be a strong force in the industry.

We deliver a comprehensive suite of services through our operating segments: Water Solutions and Infrastructure, Power Generation and Infrastructure and Equipment Rental Solutions.

Our company is committed to our customers.

Already, we have the deep resources and proven capabilities. Our employees are well-trained, passionate and customer-oriented.  We’re growth-oriented, with financial flexibility and a well-capitalized and active customer base.

For decades our people have come through for our customers when it counts. We’re striving to be the force you can depend on - providing a variety of solutions to keep operations on track.

Our commitment to safety has enabled us to obtain projects from industry leaders with some of the most demanding safety and operational requirements. Among the safety practices now in place are written standard operating procedures; our Stop Work Program, which empowers any employee to stop work if there is danger to themselves or others; our Safety Observation Program, which reinforces strong safety habits by observing employees during job duties and correcting any deficient behavior; monthly online safety training that must be completed by all employees; and our Job Safety Analysis Program, which requires all employees to complete a job safety analysis form before each task or delivery and at the end of every day.

Gold Shovel Standard (GSS) is a nonprofit organization committed to improving workforce and public safety and the integrity of buried infrastructure. GSS believes that greater transparency in all aspects of damage prevention among buried-asset operators, locators and excavators is essential to drive continuous improvement, and vital to increasingly safe working conditions and communities.
