Utility Coordination Services

Downey & Scott, LLC offers a full array of dry utility services that are customized to fit your particular project needs.  Services include:

  • Coordination of the dry utility routes with the various utility providers; power, telephone, tv, internet and natural gas; to ensure a timely deliver of these services is an essential piece to the success of any project.  The coordination process can be extremely frustrating and slow.  We strive to assist in cutting through the red tape and providing each utility all of the information they need in a timely manner in order to minimize the lead times for completion of their designs. We intervene to ensure that there is adequate space for each utility to safely install, operate and maintain their facilities.  We also review each of the utility’s service feeds to ensure that they are accurate and comply with their respective tariffs on file with the State Corporation Commission (SCC)
     
  • Our design technicians are trained in the latest version of the AutoCAD software program, and are able to provide detailed drawings independent of and/or in coordination with a civil design firm.
     
  • More and more projects are required to have conduit systems installed due to their density and lack of green space.  In cases where there are no joint use agreements in place among the utility providers, it may make sense to hire a private multi-party contractor to install the duct system.   Not only are we able to provide the detailed drawings necessary to build the conduit system but we can manage the bid solicitation project on your behalf.  Our senior utility specialist has extensive experience with many of the major dry utility contractors that operate in our area.   
     
  • We also routinely provide construction management services of the dry utility site installation process.  Our expertise includes scheduling and management of site utility contractor(s) to ensure that the power, telephone, tv and natural gas are installed timely and efficiently.  Due to our knowledge of each company’s operational and maintenance requirements, we are able to avoid conflicts with other site improvements thus eliminating expensive relocations at a later date.  This also ensures that a project flows smoothly thereby avoiding potentially costly project delays.  
     

We offer customized individual services in any combination that makes sense for your project.  We are client centric in all that we do. Our goal is to reduce risk and take the worry out of the dry utility coordination, planning and installation processes thereby enabling you to focus on what you do best -- developing and building your project.  Our dry utility coordination package, when added to our other core services, enables us to provide a more comprehensive offering of construction services.  We look forward to discussing how we can best partner with you in constructing your next world class project.
