BPI provides a complete overhead line design service for distribution and transmission lines at operating voltages from 11kV to 400kV, and across the full spectrum of structure types; wood and composite poles, lattice steel towers and BPI’s own Protean overhead line system.
The BPI overhead line design team has proven capability throughout the lifecycle of an overhead line project. From initial high level design to enable route feasibly and planning, our services extend throughout the various stages of survey and overhead line modelling, including concept design for planning and consents, to the production of a complete and detailed solution ready for construction and thereafter design support during the build programme.
Our services encompass everything from small overhead line diversions and cable sections, on-line rebuilds, new off-line routes to one-off bespoke crossing and clearance solutions. Additionally we offer a range of specialist studies including conductor uprating, condition assessment and structural analysis.
BPI’s overhead line services utilise the latest aerial survey data acquisition techniques to provide the highest quality dataset on which to base its overhead line designs. The team has qualified surveyors who can offer traditional survey techniques, if required, for construction stage setting out and as built records.
To facilitate its overhead line design services BPI has multiple licenses for a range of software suites including PLS-CADD and associated Tower, Pole and Caisson software as well as AutoCAD Civil 3D and AutoCAD Map programmes.
