CDG’s Utility Services Department, led by Kevin Cox, was created to bring together existing services that our staff provides to utilities outside of power generation and other traditional engineering disciplines. Currently, Utility Services provides project management support, Integrated Resource Planning, 3D Scanning and Modeling, Drone Surveying and Transmission and Distribution Protection and Automation programming and design.
Our specialists have provided project management support for clients since the early days of the company and currently have staff working at client sites to provide project controls, purchasing support and project planning.
Our electrical engineers have also been providing Integrated Resource Planning and Analysis to utility clients since 2013. CDG staff work directly with clients’ resource planning staff to provide support for regulatory filings or develop complete load forecasts and Integrated Resource Plans.
CDG’s Design Technologies department works directly with utilities and in support of CDG’s project engineers to provide laser scanning, drone surveys, 3D modeling and CAD support.
Through strategic hiring and development, we have added transmission and distribution (T&D) design and automation to our service offerings. This part of our team can provide support for relay changeouts, RTU design and programming, and substation design with the addition of engineering from CDG’s other departments.
