Underground Utility Construction
For over 50 years Electric Conduit Construction (ECC) has built underground utility infrastructure for power and communication companies. The world has moved into fiber optic cable but the earth is as unyielding as ever and the work to install anything underground is more complex. ECC works in the heart of major cities, suburban environments and rural settings. Our award winning utility damage prevention programs and protocols have won us recognition for safe excavation in the most difficult of circumstances. ECC generates over 100,000 dig tickets each year.
Excavation, grading, concrete forming and pouring are a few of the civil tasks associated with most construction projects. ECC excavates by mechanical, and hydroVacuum or hydro excavation. Using these methods we pour building slabs and foundations, transformer foundations, sono tube footings and other support footings.
As the cost of connecting to the Internet of Things (IOT) continues to decline, the number of connections increases. ECC is very good at managing complex 5G and fiber network installations. The complexity of urban and suburban permitting, material acquisition and tracking, crew scheduling and power and fiber installation, is a normal process for our project managers and field superintendents.
Horizontal Directional Drilling
Horizontal Directional Drilling is an efficient way to install conduit without disturbing roads and parkways. But it is fraught with danger. ECC has decades of experience with directional drilling. Our planning and execution of each drill eliminates utility strikes and keeps workers safe.
Intelligent Transportation Systems
Our expertise with directional drilling and overhead utility work enables us to upgrade existing roads and highways with minimal disruption to traffic. Fiber optic networks allow for the connection of multiple data sensors for dynamic signage, video surveillance cameras, environmental data, traffic data and lighting. Road operation centers, applying this data can smooth traffic flow and give drivers advance warning of slowdowns or other road hazards. ECC is proud to play a part in building this infrastructure and maintaining it into the future.
Emergency Call Out Services
ECC’s emergency call out service responds to over 25 calls per week. A typical emergency call is responded to in under two hours. A trained technician inspects the site and assesses the situation. This early assessment saves our customers time and money by focusing the right expertise, crew, and equipment on the trouble. ECC’s objective is to understand the problem first and fix it fast.
Electric Conduit Construction builds new infrastructure and offers maintenance on new and existing installations. These maintenance programs are typically customer driven and may consist of inspections, damage repair, antenna testing and alignment, equipment replacement, equipment upgrades or planned replacement of life limited or obsolete equipment.
is the foundation for all we do
For over 60 years, we’ve built an environment within our company where safety is everyone’s responsibility. Every phase of every project, we accept nothing less than an accident-free jobsite. We believe this standard leads to safer and more productive jobsites and that’s why we’re dedicated to having the highest level of protection for our employees, our customers and the general public. That’s our standard.
Increasingly the ability to work for certain customers depends upon qualifications and experience. Work on critical infrastructure may require certain electrical certifications or operator qualifications, or both. ECC supports these certifications and pays for its employees to gain the knowledge and skills to perform the tasks that require them.
