A key component of any construction project is knowing where any/all underground utilities are located, in order to avoid disruption. Point to Point Land Surveying is pleased to offer this additional service in addition to our other types of surveys.
As land surveyors, we rely heavily on utility location, and because we need these services dependable and consistently accurate, a number of years ago we decided to bring it “in house” and perform these services ourselves. Since that time, we have had numerous clients and fellow land surveyors seeking our assistance with underground utility location. Our experience in this area give us a clear understanding of what clients need in terms of quality, dependability, and, most importantly, accuracy.
WHY UTILITY LOCATION SERVICES ARE NEEDED
Of course, utility companies participate in the state’s “call before you dig” one-call system; however, it’s important to know that the utility companies who respond to location requests will only locate and mark facilities they own—they will not mark utilities from another company, or those that are privately owned. There are many underground utilities beyond the meter, including electric, gas, and water services, and many industrial complexes, commercial properties, and even private properties may have privately owned underground utilities between the meters and other buildings on the property. This is why it’s important to perform extensive underground utility location, especially on commercial projects or expansions to existing structures. By locating these facilities ,you can avoid design issues, large repair bills and personal injury.
Our team of utility location technicians are continually trained and updated on all modern locating techniques. Point to Point will make sure your underground utilities are marked correctly so you are properly prepared for the design professional or excavator to begin work.
