  • Scheduling resources and work to allow for efficient execution within milestones and budget
  • Provide support for customer-driven work and 24hr trouble response for emergencies and storms

 Specialized Work Methods

  • Distribution Live Line Work
  • Underground distribution
  • Feeder cable installation
  • Confined Space
  • Atlas Copco 22” rock drill
  • Use of Allteck’s Robotic Arm, rated for side load, which makes angle structure replacements safer and more efficient. The robotic arm can telescope and rotate energized phases, enabling a larger and safer pole setting window, increasing crew safety during construction. It is also remotely operated, increasing efficiency and versatility.
