Keeping powered: Substation upgrades & repairs

Substation Construction

Increased consumption demand requires continuous upgrades and expansions to the region’s electrical substations. Working in a live electrical environment requires well-trained, safety-conscious technicians who achieve precise concrete forms and finishing. Waters & Bugbee works with all of the region’s major utilities and electrical contractors to ensure stations stay online.

Electrical Distribution

We service the critical connection of the distribution grid, completing the circuit from the utility to the client. Through constant weather and aging infrastructure challenges, Waters & Bugbee addresses aerial and underground issues using its manhole and conduit capabilities, including a fleet of directional drills for environmentally sensitive areas.
