Overhead Voltage Conversation

Client: BC Hydro & Power Authority

Location: Coquitlam, BC

Completion Date: March 31, 2016


  • 200+ tasks to prep overhead for conversion to 25kV
  • Cutout, arrestor, insulator, transfer, and concrete pole changes.
  • Crossarm re-frames
  • Major issues with the units issued and discovered in pre-construction.


  • Due to many missing units, FB Valley (FBV) provided value-add services by creating an as-built sheet for every structure to identify requested scope compared to actual scope required to adhere to BC Hydro standards.
  • FB Valley worked directly with the program manager and project manager to ensure that conversion was completed on time with the additional scope and materials.
