Barnett Southern Energy Services focuses on high voltage (69kV-230kV) transmission line construction. With the support of Barnett Southern’s civil construction and marine divisions, we are able to fully self-perform projects involving clearing, matting and access, and  barge work.

MISSION

The mission of the Barnett Southern Energy Services Division is to serve electrical utilities in the south and mid-west, their customers, our employees, and our owners by building high-voltage (69kV-230kV) transmission lines safely, efficiently, and in full compliance with all technical and environmental and schedule requirements.

VISION

Our vision is to be the first-choice contractor for utilities needing the services we provide and for people who want to work in this industry.

THE 5 CORE VALUES OF THE BARNETT SOUTHERN TRANSMISSION LINE DIVISION:

  1. Do the right thing all the time -- Fairness and honesty are non-negotiable and are essential to attracting quality customers and employees.

  2. Safety comes first -- If we master the task safely, productivity will follow.

  3. Do things right the first time -- We have the time to do things correctly.  Having to correct errors costs us in time, money, and reputation.

  4. Superior service produces profit -- The long-term financial health of our company will always depend on how we serve our customers, the public, and our fellow employees.

  5. Proper planning produces punctuality -- On-time completion is a result of good advance planning and allocating the right resources, not "cutting corners." 

Services/Managers

Our transmission projects address a wide range of needs for our clients. Although these projects may vary greatly in size and scope, the services we typically bring to these projects include:

  • New construction

  • Line rebuilds

  • Marine construction

  • Structure change-out

  • Performing re-conductor projects

  • OPGW installation

  • Foundation installation

The experience of our senior managers dates back to the mid-1970’s. Joe Irby and Randy Driggers have managed some of the largest and most complex transmission line projects built in the United States over the last 40 years.
