Outage Coordination works closely with engineering, constructability and the local utility’s operations planning department to develop a highly detailed and realistic sequence of outages. By working closely with engineering we gather a comprehensive scope of work . That scope is then organized to consider real world clearance, strength of structures and sequence of major steps. With our internal construction supervisors we plan for logical and efficient steps in construction. This enhances the projects bid process by providing construction companies a common and manageable work plan based on outage steps. Outage coordination uses the power of Data Links with the AutoCAD environment to automate the creation and maintenance of the technical drawings and documents vital to the outage sequence process.
The more detail we create, the fewer unknown issues; which results in better bidder confidence; the result: better prices. Project Managers can appreciate that. The most important aspect of these two items is that at every step of the process we consult with the utility operations department to ensure our plans are realistic and executable. Our internal experience in operations builds a strong relationship. Our requests are clear and maximize the best use of the outage windows. That clarity also helps during construction.
