“I’d like to congratulate
International Line Builders…
on a job ‘most well done.’”
David C. James, P.E.
Transmission Line Manager
International Line Builders, along with its many resources, is a full service electrical distribution and transmission power line construction company. Throughout the West, we take care of our customers so they can take care of theirs.
Whatever, whenever, or wherever we’re needed, the International Line Builders team mobilizes quickly, providing the services you need, including vaults, repair, streetlights, paving, transmission and distribution. In other words, we see the bigger picture. From underground and overhead work of any size, to new or additional substation bays and more, we’ll get it done right the first time.
Our parent company, MDU Resources Group, Inc., along with MDU Construction Services Group, serves customers throughout the West and Midwest, including electric utility infrastructure support, construction, repair, maintenance contracting and more. Fact is if you need help getting power in or out, we should be your first call.
Dedicated to protecting our people
Around here, safety is the first and last thing on everybody’s mind. Why? Because we want every employee to go home safe every night. Experience tells us that top-notch safety is the best way to ensure the prosperity of our company, the praise of our customers and the eagerness of our employees.
Everyone at International Line Builders, from management to linemen, are committed to quality, productivity and safety. Our never-ending dedication to protecting our most precious asset - our people - is what has made us the industry leader.
To maintain that status, every new employee is given a thorough and effective New Hire Safety Orientation. From there, a Project/Job Hazard Analysis, Daily Job Briefing and Daily Task Hazard Analysis, as well as Weekly Safety Meeting are used to further enhance our core value. Site Safety Inspections conducted by all levels of management result in a healthier, happier and more productive team.
Our Work Speaks for Itself
Throughout the West, our crews have replaced thousands of transmission structures and installed just as many miles of new conductor. We’ve also installed, repaired and maintained overhead distribution lines for as long as we’ve been in business. Whether we perform under fixed-price contracts or time and materials, we always come in on time and under budget. In some cases, projects have been completed while circuits remained energized in order to keep residential and commercial customers in service.
From wood poles carrying 12kV to full-blown steel structures running 500kV, we know our stuff. Whenever utilities have needed our expertise, we’ve been there to get them up and running. Whether we’re replacing one pole for a private industrial customer or the complete installation of a new distribution system, every job is done right, on time, and on budget.
“Boring” in a Good Way
Our crews and supervisors have decades of experience and all the certification necessary to get your job done right - every time. That includes installation of electrical lines and conduits underground, pulling and splicing cable, racking cable in vaults and installing elbows. We can even troubleshoot and repair.
Using guided boring methodologies, we’ve helped utility as well as commercial customers replace primary and secondary electrical cables in some of the most difficult to reach places imaginable, including property easements, parks, through rock, clay, sand, gravel and more. Anywhere conventional open extraction won’t work, our crews come to the rescue - installing conduits and vaults for all types of distribution networks and circuits.
We’ve made underground easy for clients like PG&E, Avista, SCE (Southern California Edison), City of Anaheim Public Utilities, PGE, PacifiCorp and more. If you’re looking to go underground, we are here to get to work.
