Assess your poles. Make a Plan to Treat and/or Strengthen. Extend their useful life. 

1. Risk-Based Inspection
Exo’s Risk-Based Inspections (RBIs) address your specifications. RBIs include visual inspections, sound and bore, partial excavations, and full excavations. Additional
assessment resources include LiDARR, Resistance Drilling, Engineering Assessments, and more.

2. Treatments & Reinforcing Solutions
We gather the data and assign Structural Health Ratings (SHR) to your poles. The SHRs allow us to prioritize and target the most problematic structures in your
system. Based on the data we determine together what we do next: perform field remediation, treatments, reinforcement solutions, or replace structures as needed.

3. Pole Load Analysis (PLA)
When utilities understand where the weaknesses are in the system, they can confidently allocate resources to ensure reliability and resilience. Exo has spent decades engineering, inspecting, and extending the life of utility infrastructure. Now, our PLA process creates clarity about your system.
