NB+C Awarded Electric Utility Engineering Contract
The infrastructure associated with electric utilities in the United States is immensely important to providing many critical services to our nation’s citizens. These services include power, gas and communications. Due to our significant experience with telecommunications infrastructure, NB+C was recently awarded an engineering contract to support an electric utility covering numerous states in the eastern United States.
NB+C’s scope of services on this new contract will be across the utility’s network of telecommunications towers. The towers are utilized by both the utilities themselves as well as various commercial wireless service providers (WSPs) to enhance communications networks across the utility service areas. While the focus of the contract is on the upgrade, maintenance, and increased utilization of the utility’s telecommunication towers, NB+C will also provide services on the utility’s internal wireless networks.
To meet the complex demands of this contract, in addition to our engineering team providing civil and structural engineering services, NB+C has a dedicated project team currently providing this client with project management, zoning and permitting, and construction management services. NB+C is proud to be assisting the power industry with the important work of preparing its tower assets for the future needs of communications systems.
