Pole Replacement Design

Pole replacements, overloaded poles, and reject poles require engineers and designers to create accurate and compliant designs and associated work orders in order for crews to replace the pole.  Common pole owner challenges include:

  • Struggling to meet internal or mandated timeframes for replacement of reject poles
  • Multiple hand-offs between internal departments to support current workflow

Whether performed to remediate non-restorable rejects or support make-ready requirements (to alleviate space or pole loading concerns), Osmose has the engineering resources to manage the survey, analysis, design, and work management tasks associated with efficiently replacing poles and coordinating all transfer work.  Osmose pole replacement design services:

  • Reduce the risks created by the failure to replace reject poles in a timely manner
  • Reduce costs and avoid backlogs of poles requiring replacement
  • Provide technicians (on or offsite) who can more cost-effectively tackle your pole replacement design work
  • Manage a full turnkey process in conjunction with your pole inspection program

This proven strategy drives business value as renewed focus and ownership is applied to managing your pole assets while freeing up utility personnel to focus on the core tasks essential to running your business.
