Project Description

Utility Coordination

OPC’s multi-faceted team of proven utility performers has over 80 years of combined experience. Working on a variety of infrastructure projects within a wide range of budgets, they have the flexibility to be added to a project at any point in its life cycle.

OPC’s utility team is known throughout the industry for completing technically difficult utility conflicts on time-sensitive projects. This depth of knowledge and experience, combined with our long-standing relationships have positioned us to directly address utility-related issues with upper management of the most challenging utility owners.

From project inception to close-out, the OPC utility team provides:

  • Reliable guidance and meticulous documentation
  • Quality cost estimates for utility relocation
  • Early identification of long lead items that could impact schedules
  • Crucial information to acquire utilities as-built, mapping within the project limits
  • Understanding of both design and utility
  • Engineering advice on best practices
  • Construction management following the award to a contractor. This continuity saves time and is highly desirable during projects like bridge and grade separations
  • Numerous, long-standing relationships with on-call potholing contractors who provide positive location and survey
