3 Benefits of Conducting Underground Utility Surveys at Design Stage

Saving budget and time are two of the biggest aims for a contractor on any job.

Avoiding surprises and challenging issues along the way will only seek to make your life easier.

But it’s not uncommon for us to receive a request for a utility survey right before work is due to commence. Whilst this is a commendable step in protecting people from service strikes, a utility survey at this stage may uncover unexpected buried utilities which require design modifications.

Before you know it, your budget and timeframe are impacted.

Here at Intersect Surveys, we can’t stress enough the importance of getting your utility survey done at the design stage. And here are three benefits to carrying out this crucial step.

#1 Design and Planning

Full knowledge of existing utilities means that a project only needs to be designed once.

This also allows you to identify connection points for new site supplies based upon existing utilities, whilst also highlighting potential utility diversions.

#2 Health & Safety

Increased knowledge will prevent against incidence of service strikes, ensuring the safety of the workforce and the public during construction.

#3 Cost and Timescale Improvements

Lastly, full visibility of existing below-ground obstructions mitigates against surprises which would cause labour downtime, reducing additional costs associated with project delays.

These are just some of the benefits to be gained from obtaining a utility survey during the design phase. To find out more, simply pick up the phone and give us a call. We’d love to hear from you.
