Irby Construction was the successful bidder on the Colton Substation project for LCRA. Upon award of the substation it was announced that LCRA needed the station constructed and turned back over to them 27 days earlier than originally scheduled.
Irby was able to demo the 138kV side of the station, perform foundation installations with seven-day breaks on concrete and construct the substation up to the newly rated 3000A capacity.
Irby completed the station work within the timeframes requested by LCRA incident free and was also able to deliver a quality substation product to LCRA.
