POLE INSPECTIONWhether your project is a transmission line, power plant, substation, or other construction project, a QRS inspector will: review the specifications and technical documents for compatibility; identify critical inspection requirements; verify specific attributes during construction activity and assure quality of construction.
JOINT-VENDOR AUDITVendors are the major user for pole attachments in the field. Performing a Vendor Audit allows QRS personnel to examine each utility owned pole and document which Vendor, Vendors or power utility is attached, along with listing vendor name and type of attachment (cable, fiber, coax, etc.). With a vendor audit, you have a current database, reconcilable with your financial agreements.
FEEDER AUDITAlso known as a System Circuit Audit, these are an ideal way for Utilities to develop a baseline database detailing of their system. Advantages include precision location of assets in the event of structural or equipment damage, service outages of a particular area and consumer call-in for possible maintenance issues. Precise pole location allows the Utility to examine their database and immediately prioritize their inventory needs for replacement or repair, limiting the downtime resulting from an outage. Data gathered from a Field Audit provides this necessary information along with a history of the system.
Complete Feeder Inventory including each pole unit, ground transformer, equipment and other items associated with the unit audits. Information can include GPS location, pole information, conductor information with type, phase, equipment attached to the unit, vendor attachments, etc; from Telco, CATV, Fiber to be used for joint use rentals information and developing a database relative to the audit.
FIELD ENGINEERSField Engineers perform several functions. Some are utilized on smaller projects as Inspectors in addition to being responsible for field changes. The capability of being able to recognize material or location discrepancies, incorrect design applications and ability to interface between the contractor and owner is an important cost saving attribute and QRS personnel are very experienced in these functions.
GPS LOCATESSpecial needs may arise where there is a need to gather inventory data of items requiring special attention, delayed completion of a pole inventory, follow up on previous construction activities,
