Size of Project: $2,000,000 (Construction)
Duration: 7 months (Design); 4 months (Construction)
System reliability was a major issue for our client. Constant hydro outages were a nuisance for their customers in the area, largely because nine kilometres of vintage 1984 hydro cable had to be replaced, in addition to the existing transformers and foundations.
PowerStream needed to design and build a new system that would be safer, much more reliable, require less maintenance and last 35 years or more.
We assisted PowerStream and Trans Power (the utility contractor) in the predesign site inspection of underground assets, then:
Prepared a primary schematic
Prepared detailed electrical drawings for the project area
Ran cable pulling tension calculations
Coordinated with PowerStream and Trans Power to finalize and approve the design utility coordination
Obtained Town of Aurora Municipal Consent Approval
Prepared IFC (Issued for Construction) work order package and drawings for construction
Provided support during construction
