Aging infrastructure, changing load flows, system reliability requirements, and permitting challenges are all drivers in upgrading existing distribution line infrastructure to extend asset life and increase capacity. Our staff balances today’s design requirements with the original design criteria to find a unique solution to successfully meet our clients’ system needs.
Increasingly limited rights-of-way, congested city locations, reliability constraints, and aesthetics can make it difficult for a utility to construct overhead lines. With underground distribution line experience in all phases – from concept to energization – Leidos provides the needed expertise when underground distribution is the solution.
Whether for a capital or O&M program, Leidos can ramp up staff to meet the needs of client schedules and kick-start critical programs. Our talent acquisition team combined with a geographically dispersed resource pool brings a speed-to-market differentiator to Leidos clients. Combining program and engineering best practices and templates, Leidos engineers and program managers are adept at developing customized solutions that fit client needs and internal processes.
Beyond producing engineering deliverables that include development of construction work packages, drawings, bill of materials, and cost estimates, the Leidos team has the technical know-how to help with a variety of engineering studies and calculations.
