Substation Projects

Tamark Sub

Tamark Sub was a turnkey project. It required demolition of the old building and a 100% self-performed new building construction, including rock drilling and placing all foundations, erecting the new building and installing the new underground utilities.

Pit 1 Sub

Pit 1 Sub was a project that required 100% demolition of bank #1 and #2 115kv yards and construction of all the new foundations incorporated with the bank replacements. The project schedule was intense, requiring multiple crews to keep construction going 24/7 for a three-month period during the dead of winter.

Brighton Grand Island

Outback teamed up with its engineering partners to deliver a design build project to drive piles and build new towers in the Delta of California. The piles were driven anywhere from 30-70 feet in depth, then protected with UV coating to prevent damage on exposed casings.
