How Subsurface Utility Engineering Validates Design and Enhances Safety

Articles 05-01-2019

New construction projects of all shapes and sizes continue to populate our landscape.

On occasion, those projects will run into untimely, costly delays because a utility conflict was encountered. Even worse, a utility line was ruptured. That’s where subsurface utility engineering (SUE) comes into play.

Halff’s SUE teams accurately locate and map visible and underground utilities early in a project’s planning or design process—ideally before construction begins—so contractors can avoid costly conflicts and hazards.

Halff has developed proven processes that provide accuracy and economy in project-driven utility inventories. All SUE projects are managed by a Professional Engineer, who performs a final review, and signs and seals all submittals.

Here’s more information about how SUE can reduce risk and benefit projects.
