Utility Pole Placement & Maintenance

A thorough pole inspection enables us to gather the essential data for determining the ideal poles suitable for your specific needs and attachments. This crucial information empowers us to notify you when the time for replacement arrives.

Utility pole decay is a major problem for many companies in the US. It can cause poles to collapse, which can lead to power outages and other disruptions. It happens slowly over time and is caused by fungi and insects, usually below the ground line. Factors like location, wood type, treatment, and soil conditions can affect how quickly decay happens. The good news is that there are things you can do to prevent pole decay. Experts recommend proper preparation, planning, and ongoing maintenance. By collecting accurate data about your poles, you can identify those that are at risk and take steps to protect them.

That’s where we come in. With our precise utility pole data collection and 3D modeling, we give you the knowledge you need to confidently move forward with your communications plan. We understand that pole decay is a serious problem, and we are committed to helping you protect your poles and keep your community safe.

Outside Plant Engineering (OSP)

With the ever-increasing demand for high-speed internet and advanced telecommunication services, OSP engineering and maintenance have become paramount in meeting customer expectations. Our skilled professionals in OSP engineering ensure efficient and cost-effective solutions that meet your needs.

OSP ensures that telecommunications networks are reliable and available. Without a well-maintained OSP, networks can be disrupted by things like power outages, storms, and vandalism. OSP plays a vital role in enabling us to stay connected with our loved ones, access vital information, and carry out our daily activities in today’s interconnected world.


Joint Use Request (JUR)

As the demand for telecommunications infrastructure grows, establishing joint-use agreements becomes crucial. With OCM, you have a key partner in ensuring the efficient allocation of space and the continued reliability and safety of the utility pole infrastructure.

Imagine a world where telecommunications companies were constantly competing with each other to build their own infrastructure. It would be a world of waste and inefficiency, and it would make it difficult for businesses and individuals to get the telecommunications services they need.

At OCM Engineering we help break down these barriers and create a more efficient and effective telecommunications industry. JUR is the heart of this harmonious collaboration, a process that brings different providers together to efficiently utilize and share the infrastructure. It’s a way to make sure that everyone has access to the telecommunications services they need, and it’s a way to protect the environment.


GIS – Records Updates

Incorporating GIS into pole engineering practices ensures the integrity and up-to-date status of pole infrastructure. It streamlines data management, enables proactive maintenance, improves asset management, and empowers informed decision-making for a cost-effective and resilient pole infrastructure.

It provides a centralized repository of information about utility poles. This information can be used to identify poles that need to be inspected, plan pole inspections, and collect data about pole conditions.

  • Improved safety: The identification of poles at risk of collapse is a straightforward process. This critical information can then be utilized to prioritize pole inspections and implement measures to effectively mitigate potential risks.
  • Increased efficiency: The time and resources required for collecting and managing pole data are significantly reduced. This newfound efficiency frees up resources that can be allocated to other important tasks, such as conducting thorough pole inspections and carrying out necessary maintenance activities.
  • Improved decision-making: The provision of a clear picture of the condition of utility poles enables stakeholders to make informed decisions regarding pole inspections, maintenance, and replacements.
