SW30 Three Phase Construction
The Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative requested services from M&S Engineering for the conversion of approximately 2.5 miles of 1/0 aluminum overhead single phase line to a 1/0 ACSR three phase line in Bastrop County.
M&S performed field staking of the line to meet Bluebonnet’s specifications and transferred this to electronic staking sheets in Bluebonnet’s Partner software system. The design of this line included use of expanding foam to provide intermediate backfill for structural support on all un-guyed three phase poles.
Verification of condition and integrity of utility poles located in the first two spans of all single phase primary taps in the project area was performed as well. Two programmable sectionalizers were added and all foreign attachments clearances were verified or corrected as needed.
This is the start of a Successful Relationship
Highest Level of Professional Engineering
M&S has been Southstar’s Civil Engineer for over 7 years and our success is a direct result of their stellar work. From their leadership down to the company’s focus and ideals M&S represents the highest level of professional engineering. They are focused on their client and understand our goals and challenges. Southstar would not be the company nor our projects be the success they are unless we had M&S by our side.
Focused on Developing Relationships
This partnership we have forged will launch our District well into the future. With a supportive Board we have focused on developing relationships that bond us with our consultants as partners rather than tools that we use. We feel that we have a very symbiotic relationship with our team at M&S.

Tim S. Gescheidle,
The staff at M&S has been fundamental in building the CIP for Crystal Clear SUD and in guiding the board of directors in all aspects of the overall concepts utilized. They have been able to explain things in manageable segments that have assured understanding at all director experience levels. We greatly appreciate their professionalism and true partnership with the Crystal Clear organization.
