RTR Constructability Services include advising the project team on ROW access, pull sites, work pads, and any concerns that might be an issue with construction. We also work with environmental team members to help solve any potential issues. We work with engineering to advise and help solve any potential design issues that might not be feasible with field construction. Our outage planning work includes working with the transmission planning department, coordinating and designing a working Outage plan, recommending a construction sequence and working with the Field Supervisors to move a project through to the start of construction.
