FW&A provides engineering services for transmission and distribution level facilities.

We provide quality designs using industry-standard tools, such as PLS-CADD and PLS-POLE with Wood, Steel & Concrete modules. We specialize in providing solutions for urban/suburban projects with complex right-of-way constraints, clearance requirements & under-built distribution.

Transmission engineering services include:

  • Overhead & underground line design
  • Underbuilt distribution
  • Upgrades such as voltage conversion & reconductoring for line uprating
  • Design of wood, steel & concrete support structures
  • PLS-CADD design using aerial photos, Laser Detection & Ranging (LiDAR) surveys & terrain modeling
  • Sag & tension calculations
  • Route selection
  • Right-of-way acquisition assistance
  • Permitting
  • Access/patrol road design
  • Electromagnetic field (EMF) calculations

 

Distribution engineering services include:

  • Overhead / underground line design
  • Overhead-to-underground conversion design, including ductbank & manhole systems
  • Cable & equipment replacement design
  • Distribution system studies for load-flow, arc flash, coordination & fault studies
  • Distribution system computer modeling & analysis with SynerGEE, Milsoft, ETAP & SKM power tools
  • Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping with tools such as ArcFM
  • Identification of easements / right-of-ways
  • Permitting
  • Roadway lighting design & computer modeling with tools such as AGi32
