Patterson & Dewar’s distribution and field services staff comprises experienced engineers and staking technicians who help utilities build and maintain a reliable power delivery infrastructure. We assist clients with projects ranging from a simple single-span tap, to a major highway relocation, to overhead and underground subdivision layouts with single-, double-, and triple-circuit construction and underground duct systems.
