Outside Plant Construction
OCI handles all phases of underground and aerial plant construction. We work with all major communication and power companies assisting their needs.
Our daily activities include, but not limited to, new construction, conduit installation, manholes, V-rad cabinets, directional drilling, and cable placement (both telephone and power).
Plant rearrangement due to infrastructure construction, gelling innerduct to prevent fiber freezing, and moving live cable are some of the challenges that our clients face.
OCI delivers quick, efficient and skilled solutions and responses to meet whatever challenges you may have.

Directional Boring is the preferred technology for underground plant installation and construction. Many situations make it impossible to open cut trench due to traffic, existing infrastructure, wildlife habitats or customer requests.
Controlled boring can solve these tough situations by opening up new avenues for plan installation. The advantages of directional boring include:
No trenching or restoration
No interruption of traffic
No erosion problems due to open trenches on hillsides
OCI can place your cable or carrier pipe with minimal inconveniences to customer traffic, landscaping and site restoration in comparison to open cut trenching. The payoff is a reduction in customer complaints and restoration callbacks.
We offer installation of telephone, cable, power, gas, water, innerduct, conduit and pipe with diameters between 1" and 8".
OCI has extracted thousands of miles of both direct buried cable and cable from conduit.
We offer a complete removal system where cable is cut into 4 foot lengths, automatically loaded into trucks and shipped to an environmentally safe recycling center.
Buried or in conduit, OCI Construction can meet your salvaging needs quickly and cost effectively.
