Project Description:

 A three-man underground crew and a 5 man overhead distribution crew was used to complete this work.  The underground crew used a Texoma pressure digger to dig holes of up to 30’.  The overhead crew would follow to set the base with a 20P line truck.  The upper sections of poles were set using a 180 ton crane for the poles and a 75 ton crane with steel basket was used for the men to align and jack together the pole sections.  Pike purchased custom made jacking plates for this process. 

Major Steps of Project:

The major steps of project organization, indicate level of responsibility for schedule and provide scheduled and actual dates for project start and project completion. The first major step of this project was to locate the best crew Pike had to perform this work safely and efficiently.  Given that this was not the typical work that crews in this area perform, Area Supervisor Phillip Combs and GF Tracy Matthews took careful consideration for the men and the work methods that were to be used to complete this work in energized substations.  Tyler Myler’s crew was selected as the underground crew that would be utilized on the digging portion while Doug Duckworth’s crew was selected to perform the pole installation work.  Daily pre-job meetings were held to discuss the particulars for each pole installation.  As each pole location had different configurations and potential safety hazards, each location was treated as a separate project to plan the work and execute the plan.  GF Tracy Matthews coordinated all efforts from the 2 Pike crews and the crane subcontractor.
