Wabash Valley Power
Commonwealth designed a new wood 138 kV transmission line 4.5 miles in length. Private easements were purchased for right-of-way and tree trimming. In addition, routing and permitting services were rendered as part of the total work. Commonwealth’s responsibilities for the project also included project management of the overall schedule; construction bidding and award; material bidding, ordering and expediting; and construction field audits (construction management) of the construction.
Work was performed in Commonwealth’s Jackson, Michigan, office with multiple on-site visits and meetings to coordinate construction management and design efforts. Survey subcontractors were contracted and managed as part of the project. The scope of the work included a digital terrain model for design and staking of the transmission structures for construction. The construction of the line was completed two weeks prior to the in-service established by the client.
