Chester Substation

Constructed as the first gas switched substation outside of Long Island, NY, this massive project required close coordination with all trades and was completed in under 3 months.

This new construction was completed by Holt as the General Contractor and included concrete footings, caissons, and concrete encased conduits. The entire site fencing and footings were installed with a grounding grid along with new required fencing. In addition, new road crossings for conduit runs were installed and site restoration was completed throughout the site.

The installation of the power line was a major challenge that involved several stages and a wide diversity of skilled workers. Coordination with the owner, contractors and various trades was utilized to mitigate safety and stay within the original schedule and scope.
