Moody Substation to Galveston Substation

Galveston, Texas

This project was performed at Moody Gardens and required very careful sequencing and preparation so as not to affect their operations. Binkley & Barfield | DCCM performed SUE Quality Level B in and around 59 transmission poles, covering 2.64 miles, and provided vacuum excavation in an “X” pattern at the proposed pole locations (to be sure they were clear of all utilities). There were many water lines with no utility records and very heavy traffic. Binkley & Barfield | DCCM spent a lot of time inspecting the site, meeting with utility companies, and seeking utility records and maintenance records before beginning the work. We then coordinated with Moody Garden representatives, utility owners, and the City of Galveston to minimize any effect on the public and Moody Garden’s operation from the work, the required traffic control, and road closures. Thoughtful upfront planning and careful coordination resulted in this project’s successful completion without disrupting the public or Moody Gardens.
