The H-Frame removal project saw BC Hydro remove over 350 H-Frame wooden poles, overhead wires and electrical equipment from Downtown Vancouver. The H-Frames were replaced with underground services in easy-access vaults, improving visual aesthetics, accessibility and traffic flow in alleyways. The project also aimed to modernize building connections to the grid, standardizing distribution voltage and improving the reliability of BC Hydro’s distribution system.
RAM partnered with J. Wilkins to deliver the BC Hydro Contract for Design of Distribution Secondary Services for the H-Frame program, providing detailed engineering, construction coordination and project management services.
