Societal and economic systems help make the world go round. Everyone uses energy, communication, water, and other infrastructure networks. Add to those our healthcare and emergency services, and it’s easy to see how our safety, well-being, and peace of mind are at risk when these systems and services are unprotected and vulnerable.  

Deliberate attacks on critical infrastructure are on the rise, such as the recent shootings of electrical substations in North Carolina and Washington state. We see critical infrastructure protection (CIP) as an important focus for all industries, including utilities, renewable energy, government, and transportation. When a disruption occurs, the consequences can be fiscal, physical, or even life threatening.

RETTEW approaches CIP with design and installation solutions to help safeguard your utilities, infrastructure, and other vital assets. Our experts in subsurface utility engineering, construction services, safety, geotechnical, and other areas collaborate to ensure your systems are protected. Here are some of the ways we can help:

  • Risk assessments
  • Incident management
  • Emergency response planning and procedures
  • Specification development
  • Isolation and redundancy evaluations
  • Solution engineering
  • Design-build.

Once we identify potential threats to your critical infrastructure, we will work together with you, strategic partners, and other stakeholders to develop an appropriate solution. Those solutions could include walls, diversions, fences, or other barriers that protect against threats like fire, explosions, flooding, and even ballistics.

When you’re ready to prioritize CIP, please reach out to Jeremy Burger, RETTEW’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development, at 610-554-7330 or We can ensure you have reliable protection against current and emerging threats that jeopardize our businesses and communities.
