THE CHALLENGES OUR CLIENTS FACE
Large-scale electrical transmission projects are unique in that they typically cross multiple regulated resource areas, impact property types with varying access/use agreements, do not have adequate access paths to all work area, and a majority of proposed impacts are temporary. Due to the number of variables encountered, the plan application result is sometimes complex and confusing.
HOW WE HELP
McCormick Taylor’s engineers are well-versed in the permitting and engineering constraints of these project types and how local and state regulations apply or—sometimes more importantly—don’t apply to the project. A firm understanding of the regulatory applicability is a key component in delivering a design plan on schedule.
Our engineers develop highly constructible plans that are expeditiously approved by review agencies. Our team understands the unique constructability aspects of large-scale electrical transmission projects, including the importance of contractibility field condition reviews, project engineering constraints (wire pulling angle restraints, turning radius restraints, typical construction methods, etc.), and the potential complexity and effect of varying real property agreements.
With our understanding of the unique constructability constraints of these project types, combined with our understanding of the regulatory environment in which they are set, McCormick Taylor is able to provide a high quality, constructible product that adheres to all applicable regulations such that it is delivered within the expected permitting timeframe.
