Our experienced project managers can offer turnkey solutions throughout all phases of the project from project conception, planning, design, construction and implementation. Let us be the engineering firm of choice (EOC) or allow us to handle the engineering-procurement-construction (EPC) for your next program project.
- Project Initiation - Identifying the full project scope and qualified resources required to carry out specific tasks. Assign special training requirements needed before project begins.
- Project Planning - Creating the milestones and project budgets. Develop the project team and allocate resources to the appropriate tasks.
- Project Execution - Kick off the project with a project team meeting. Discuss all the hard spots and validate all assumptions. Track and monitor budgets, schedules, resources and critical paths.
- Project Closure - Ensure the project scope and criteria have been met. Perform post-job project meeting to discuss lessons learned and project closure process. Document all variances from original project scope. Perform all final documentation required for project closure.
Transmission Line Design
We can engineer and design your next transmission line project according to your specifications with sophisticated software such as PLC-CADD, PLS-POLE, SAG10, and others. We can model your pole and tower structures for adequate clearances, thermal, tension, sag, wind, and load requirements, etc.
We can also help you develop your new transmission line design standards. Let us help you with your next transmission line project.
