Greer CPW Selects McLean Engineering for Pole Attachment Inventory

The Greer (S.C.) Commission of Public Works (CPW) recently selected McLean Engineering Company to provide an inventory of its pole attachments.  

As part of its joint use attachment agreements, Greer CPW is due to conduct a pole attachment count and joint use inventory on its system. Greer CPW selected McLean Engineering to provide this count in an effort to improve billing accuracy and clean up late transfers so unnecessary poles can be removed. As part of the inventory process, McLean is also helping Greer CPW identify obvious safety issues created by joint-users as well as update the GIS data associated with pole locations and the attachments.

McLean works with many municipalities, cooperatives and state trade organizations to navigate through joint-use concerns by providing expertise in all areas related to joint-use matters.
