Distribution Construction & Repair

Whether a utility needs pole change-outs, relocations or reconductorING work, our workforce gets the job done safely and efficiently. Our crews have years of experience with bare-hand and hot-sticking as well as know-how of underground and overhead distribution systems.

Overhead Distribution Construction

Our crews provide our utility customers with all (or a subset of) the elements of constructing and repairing overhead distribution lines. Our expertise includes:  installing poles, single-phase and three phase transformers and transformer banks; decommissioning lines; line tensioning and testing; commissioning; and undertaking high voltage power cable splices and terminations.

From setting poles to replacing worn components like insulators, we train and certify our crews to work safely on de-energized and energized circuits.

Our crews handle the rearrangement or modification of assets to make a pole, conduit or other support equipment ready for a new attachment.

Whether it’s extending a line or converting a single-phase line to three phase, our crews help utilities make smart grid investments by offering services including: installing conductors; setting poles; adding remotely operated throw-overs or replacing older-model throw-overs with new ones; and strategically placing fault sensors on line reclosers.

If a utility needs to build new infrastructure or retrofit existing assets, our crews can ensure what’s built is more capable of withstanding extreme weather.

When utilities need a quick response to unplanned outages, we safely deliver electric distribution restoration for investor-owned utilities, municipalities, and cooperatives.

Underground Distribution Construction

As communities increasingly consider underground distribution lines, utility managers call on our crews to excavate trenches, direct bury or install conductors in conduit, properly space conduits to dissipate heat, carefully backfill trenching with appropriate materials, and replace the surface layer.

Since buried power lines can develop faults from bare neutrals and accidental excavation, our teams regularly help utilities with their underground distribution maintenance programs.

Our team has the equipment and knowledge to construct trenches and place and bury the pipes and cabling for a variety of utility services along a single trench.

As communities increasingly consider underground distribution lines, utility managers call on our crews to excavate trenches, direct bury or install conductors in conduit, properly space conduits to dissipate heat, carefully backfill trenching with appropriate materials, and replace the surface layer.

Our crews have experience with installing duct banks on site, including conduits and spacers, or putting in place prefabricated duct banks.
