Energy & Utility
Energy. It matters.
From providing sustainable power to remote locations off the utility grid, to preparing and reviewing cathodic protection designs for new and existing pipelines and storage tanks, to serving as owner’s engineering support for a new 180 MW power plant, Coffman’s multidiscipline engineers will bring life to your energy and utility project.
Our team supports energy and utility projects across the mainland U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii. At Coffman, we naturally and seamlessly coordinate to share knowledge between our many offices. When you partner with us, you are tapping into our multidiscipline capabilities and collective experience, paired with the latest technologies and processes.
Coffman’s teams scale to and customize our service offerings to provide support tailored to you. We support a variety of energy projects including conventional power plants and alternative and renewable power projects that use wind, solar, biomass, recovered heat, energy storage, and combined heat and power. Our team has years of experience with microgrids and using battery technology for energy storage.
Coffman routinely supports utility clients and has completed hundreds of utility projects nationwide, many under long term on call contracts. From subsurface water and wastewater infrastructure to telecommunications, power generation, LNG facilities, and natural gas distribution, our team has experience servicing clients such as urban and rural electric, gas, and water utilities as well as federal government agencies servicing some of the Nation’s most critical infrastructure.
Selecting the optimal delivery method for your energy and utility project matters. Each option has advantages and disadvantages based on schedule, owner sophistication, long term goals, reliability needs, in-house staffing, project oversight requirements and system complexity. Our experienced project managers and construction managers provide delivery method guidance to help you weigh the options, including design-bid-build, design-build, design-assist, EPC (Engineer Procure-Construct), and construction at risk.
