    • Work TBD

    *All work is weather dependent

    Duct bank: Duct banks are groups of conduits designed to protect and consolidate cabling to and from buildings which are surrounded by a protective casing (either concrete or metal).

    Taphole: Smaller manhole (3x3x3)

    Transformer Enclosure: These enclosures are designed to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts and to provide a degree of protection to the transformer from     contaminants such as moisture, dust, metallic dust, and chemicals.

    PCC Base: Base and subbase thickness for early roads. Portland cement concrete (PCC) was originally used as a base and was surfaced with wooden blocks, bricks, and cobblestones.
