Transmission and Distribution

At Hanson, we understand your complicated and diverse power delivery project needs. Our team of engineers, planners, scientists, and specialists can offer a full complement of support for a wide range of project goals.


Transmission Projects 

Over the years, Hanson has completed numerous transmission projects for more than 2,000 transmission and distribution line structures and five major river crossings.

Services have included:


  • Permitting compliance reviews
  • Substation site development
  • Geotechnical investigations
  • Foundation designs
  • Construction quality assurance geotechnical investigations
  • Recommendations and environmental permitting services on those projects and dozens of substations.

Hanson has provided public involvement, surveying, land acquisition, route selection assistance, environmental studies, and road monitoring to support our clients during project development, design, and construction.

Distribution Projects

Additionally, Hanson has provided surveying and vegetative management services for distribution corridors, providing the basis for facility upgrades as well as planning for potential future upgrade alternatives.

Asset Management

Asset management plays a vital role in distribution networks — our mobile mapping services can help quantify the network and develop a geographic information system on which to base many decision-making processes, including maintenance and planning.

Why Choose Hanson?

Since 1954, we have assessed projects’ risks and focused on safety while keeping our clients’ budgets in mind. We were founded as a geotechnical firm, so we understand soil-structure interactions.

Hanson’s services include peer reviews of completed designs, which can result in significant cost savings for our clients. One such review led to a savings of 10,000 pounds of reinforcing steel in a single drilled pier foundation.

Since our founding, we have regarded engineering and scientific services as much more than applications of technology. We work with our clients to design unique solutions to unique project challenges. With offices across the U.S., we draw on our resources, expertise, and experience from around the country to offer your projects the attention and customization they need.
