Innovative Value-Added Solutions

Using industry standard design tools, our expert Engineering and Design team uses a project management process with performance metrics dashboard systems to achieve savings through efficiency.  We’re experienced in transmission line design, overhead and underground distribution design, substation site development and storm hardening and grid modernization best practices.

Bringing specialized skills in design, construction and maintenance, we deliver projects that significantly increase productivity and reduced project delivery time through process improvements and cutting-edge technology.

Our Experience

Since 2014, BHI’s T&D Design Group has worked with large utilities on grid and storm hardening  construction and upgrade projects.  Professional T&D teams conduct field survey and verification, environmental assessments, GIS mapping and permitting.  Supervisors and Lead Technicians develop and design projects and coordinate with clients, engineers and crews, directing Design Technicians who conduct analyses, calculate loading, verify and update record drawings and design riser transfers and directional bores.

Our T&D expertise has significantly increased productivity and reduced project delivery time for clients through process improvements and best practice implementation, and a proven quality control and assurance program.
