Design Services

Tier 1’s experienced designers provide Physical Electrical, Wiring, and Structural Design services for Utility T&D Infrastructure projects.

Electrical Wiring Design

Tier 1’s Wiring Design Team provides detailed point to point wiring designs based on developed schematics. Tier 1 provides panel layouts, internal panel wiring and equipment interconnect wiring for new and modified substations. Tier 1 wiring design has an average experience level of approximately 25 years and is very experienced in developing wiring designs to meet client requirements.

Physical Electrical Design

The Physical Design Team develops detailed physical designs using AutoCAD or MicroStation. Designs include plans, elevations, Bills of Material, underground and above ground conduit systems and grounding design. Designs are 2D or 3D depending on client preferences. Tier 1 uses AutoCAD design suits and Bentley substation design package for 3D design projects.

Structural Design

Tier 1’s structural designers work closely with the Structural Engineers to develop both concrete design and steel design/fabrication drawings for all structures as well as assist in coordination with the Physical Electrical Team to ensure the Structural Designs match the physical designs for the project.  The designers work from sketches prepared by the engineers and produce construction ready documents which include foundation, structure and erection plans; rebar schedules, details, and bill of materials.
