Power

The power industry is up against a unique challenge with the shifting horizon of power generation and conveyance.  The transmission grid is consistently overloaded and is supported by aging infrastructure, the generation sources are being pushed towards renewable while phasing out older sources, and utilities have the unique design challenge of supplying power to a growing population.  A2Z Engineering strives to be a firm that works with our clients to develop efficient, cost effective solutions to meet these challenges.  We have extensive experience in civil and structural power design and have collaborated with multiple utilities and electrical groups to complete complex projects with professionalism and exceptionalism.  We have extensive power design experience from distribution level design to  high voltage design including all structural and civil aspects of substation and transmission line design.  We have analyzed existing infrastructure for reconductor/rebuild work and designed new lines out of lattice steel, tubular steel pole, wood monopole, wood h-frame, fiberglass, and concrete.  A2Z Engineering prides itself in excellent customer service, cost effective engineering, and creative ingenuity that keeps projects on track and under budget.
