Site Servicing Simplified

Site Power takes on dozens of Underground Residential Distribution (URD) design-build projects annually for our developer and utility customers.  Project sizes range from small single transformer jobs to large multi-stage developments spanning several years. From a residential perspective, we’re connecting power to nearly a thousand new homes each year.

Beyond our URD servicing we take on several overhead distribution projects annually for our utility customers.  These projects are driven by system improvements required to accommodate new developments, asset relocations or end of life maintenance.  Site Power’s overhead design services to our utility clients include Site / Asset condition assessments, Stakeholder engagement, multi stage design approvals (35%, 65%, 95%), work on complex / non-standard installations, construction estimates, material forecasting & procurement, GIS system digitizing, issuance of work order packages, construction support, work order reconciliation, closeout and financial asset detailing.
