Construction

When you're ready to begin a project, we're your first point of contact. We work with the construction industry to plan, develop and install electricity infrastructure for commercial and residential projects. You can learn more about the process below and get started online or by calling 310-WIRE (9473).

URD Turnkey process

The URD Turnkey process allows developers of a new subdivision to get all electrical facilities under one contract with FortisAlberta. We’ll complete all work outside the boundaries of the subdivision while developers manage the installation of electrical facilities within their property with the help of our pre-registered consultants and construction contractors.

We pre-register consultants and contractors to ensure a safe installation and energization process. To make it easy, we’ve compiled a list of professionals with subdivision construction experience.

Are you a consultant or construction contractor? Contact our Contract Services Group to learn more about the pre-registration process.

Pre-cast base, grounding and ducting process

The customer installed pre-cast base, grounding and ducting process covers our requirements for designing and installing cable ducts, transformer bases, grounding, and other underground electrical distribution facilities. To ensure a safe installation and energization process, please note that we’ll only accept designs and installations provided by pre-registered consultants and contractors. To make it easy, we’ve compiled a list of professionals with pre-cast construction experience.
