Transmission Lines

We work closely with utility engineers and vegetative management representatives, as well as the Department of Public Service, to identify and address potential routes to avoid significant areas of aesthetic concern. Our projects range from single substation/utility  project sites, under ground electric and gas transmission corridors, but mostly above ground electric lines which span from 1 mile to 130 miles long, We focus our efforts on mitigating the impact of the project through the relocation and elimination of structures, corridor alignment changes and providing landscape plantings. Throughout the entire process we provide extensive testimony, visual impact report and corresponding exhibits to address Criterion 8 Aesthetic concerns at Public Service Board site visit and hearings.We have an ability to present our findings in coordination with the utility companies to educate and collaborate with the town representatives, landowners, key stakeholders and the general public involved with the project. Our visual exhibits such as GIS maps and photographic simulations can give the general public a better understanding of the potential project changes.
