Solutions For a New Economy

Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) has emerged since the 1980’s as one of the most innovative tools for civil engineers and construction consultants to protect utilities from damage. Quality Level based mapping in accordance with CI/ASCE 38-02 "Standard Guidelines for the Collection and Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data" incorporates high-tech electronic designation techniques and non-destructive vacuum excavation services to obtain horizontal and vertical utility alignments thereby making the “best guess” scenario obsolete.


Subsurface Utility Engineering will save you time and money. By implementing a SUE program up front you can avoid project pitfalls. Precise utility information allows design engineers to create feasible and functional designs avoiding costly change orders and construction delays down the road. A study prepared by Purdue University for the Federal Highway Administration provides more specific information on costs verses benefits. A savings was found of $4.62 for every $1.00 spent on SUE was quantified from a total of 71 DOT projects.
