- Converting overhead electrical to underground
- Replacing alley surfacing with concrete
- Project staging to reduce impact on local businesses
- Coordination/cooperation with multiple utilities
- Design project construction with limited space
- Cooperative project for two Owners (electrical/utility and City)
This pair of projects encompassed eight downtown alley blocks over two construction contracts in consecutive years. The improvements consisted of new underground telephone, cable and electric lines; converting the old overhead equipment and repairing the full alley width with new concrete. The project navigated converting utilities, narrow corridors and staging while minimizing disturbance to the public to create a revitalized look to the downtown business district.

Treatment Plant & Well Exploration
DGR Engineering worked closely with OCRWS to design a new Water Treatment Plant to target iron and manganese removal from a shallow groundwater source near the site.
Due to concerns with the age and condition of the structures, along with safety clearances to energized equipment and conductors, a project was undertaken to replace the old infrastructure with new underground lines and associated padmount equipment.
