Commonwealth was hired by a Northeastern utility to provide physical security for their substations. This client is required by NERC to provide physical security for their substations. The project consists of 3,300 feet of fence upgrades to the perimeter of the substation. Commonwealth has done work for this substation regarding other services for many years.
Commonwealth developed the construction specifications for bidders. The fence system for the physical security requires a large amount of foundations. Commonwealth exposed underground obstructions and laid out foundations that avoided existing underground infrastructure. Commonwealth was able to shorten the design phase by a month and successfully stay on schedule.
