Aerial Utility Construction
Electric Conduit Construction (ECC) has the crews, management, equipment and tools to build, repair, maintain or move, electrical distribution systems and any type of aerial communication system. ECC can manage and execute your ‘make ready’ work, and thanks to our extensive list of MSA’s with all major communications companies, we can move their assets along with yours.
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.
Underground utility construction requires extensive excavation for trenches to carry conduit. Utility civil work is also required when foundations have to be dug for building slabs, transformer pads, retaining walls and other ground stabilizing structures. Electric Conduit Construction utilizes mechanical and hydro-excavation to establish trenches, slot trenches and potholing.
We have a long history with cellular systems and distributed antenna systems. Now with 5G most of our work is involved with the fiber rings, fiber backhaul laterals, power feeds and installation of 5G cell sites. Our projects are turn-key for our customers. This requires us to plan, secure permits, remove old street lamp posts, and replace with new street lamp posts or utility poles and mount the radios, antennas, optical network interface, fiber whip and test the entire system.
Horizontal Directional Drilling
HDD is the least intrusive way to place conduit, fiber or electrical distribution cables. Normally 1,000 foot shots can be accomplished with a small crew. Planning is the key to successful HDD work. Every foreign utility must be identified by using utility locates and then verifying visually by potholing. In addition the pothole must be large enough and deep enough for the observer to watch the drill head emerge at the prescribed depth with sufficient separation from the foreign utility. Our methods, crew training and quality assurance helps us avoid utility strikes.
