Energizing communities

Our energy team has delivered distribution systems for utility, industrial, commercial, and resource extraction clients across North America both above and underground. Our goal? To combine local knowledge with best practice and best cost options to deliver your distribution project on time and on budget.

We also provide engineering and design services for a wide array of supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems ranging from large substation and control center systems to small remote systems. We can help justify, recommend, and provide design, engineering, and specifications for complete data acquisition and control systems—including replacement, upgrade, or expansion.

From substation siting, detailed engineering, and detailed design to protection and control, our range of distribution project expertise means we can deliver fully integrated services, all in-house.

Empowering distribution services

Sage Hill is a 160-acre site, with 18 commercial lots planned. As part of the infrastructure essential to the site, we designed the main power feed provision for the site. Approximately 2 kilometers of large underground power cable was required, along with 4 large switchgear cabinets. Read More

Understanding the reasons behind the rules

Alectra Utilities delivers power, so it makes sense that their people mostly have backgrounds in electrical work. When it came to the structural engineering side of projects, they followed the rules but had never studied the basics. We partnered with Alectra to deliver a training session that grounded our client’s experts in multidisciplinary knowledge. Read More
