Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE)

Civil Design and Construction, Inc. (CD&C) is excited to expand our services to include Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE).  The discovery of unforeseen underground utility lines during construction can lead to catastrophic results such as lengthy construction delays or expensive cost increases. Let CD&C take the guesswork out the project for you.


What is Subsurface Utility Engineering?  Subsurface utility engineering (SUE) is an engineering process that utilizes data processing and site characterization technologies to accurately locate and depict underground utilities in the preliminary stages of a project.  Nothing is worse than unnecessary downtime costing you millions of dollars along with delaying your project.  CD&C uses the latest technology to accurately locate all subsurface utilities before the first piece of equipment ever arrives on the job site.


The One Call System was never intended as a tool in surveying or planning of any construction project.  The companies contracted by One Call receive two to five thousand utility location request a month.  Not to mention the hundreds of utility location request a day from homeowners, long distance construction projects and emergency location request.   You may experience delays relying on the traditional One Call process and many times the accuracy of the utility markings are not correct.   CD&C can accurately locate and mark all underground utility lines with precise Subsurface Utility Engineering technology.  This will ensure your job is done correctly the first time.


Using Subsurface Underground Engineering (SUE) is the best-known practice to find and document utility conflicts for your project, before you begin.  This can allow for design changes that could save the project costly obstacles.  When you are in the design phase, you need to know what is feasible and what is not.  An upfront re-design can help prevent delays in the construction process that are typically very costly once you have broken ground.  Civil Design and Construction, Inc. is committed to getting your job done correctly the first time.


Do you want to avoid risk and liability that can result from damaged underground utilities on your next project?  Knowing utility locations ahead of time will help your construction crew avoid damage, downtime and workplace accidents.  Give Civil Design and Construction, Inc. a call today to discuss their new Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services.  (225) 765-1802 *

Did you know an underground utility line is damaged about once every six minutes, creating a major concern for everyone involved in the construction process.  Do not let subsurface utilities get in the way of your next construction job.  Give Civil Design and Construction, Inc.
