Subsurface Utility Engineering

Our Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) team delivers highly accurate designating and mapping of underground utilities and help clients avoid costly utility conflicts or construction delays caused by unknown or misrepresented utilities. Three national magazines have published articles on the BBI SUE team and their use of cutting edge electromagnetic technologies to find and map un-locatable utilities as deep as 50 feet. Our extensive use of electromagnetic technologies is coupled with vacuum excavation and safe-dig technologies to further locate and identify utilities. Our SUE Team and our Utility Coordination Team work closely together and form a real synergy in managing all aspects of utility relocations and redesigns, including avoiding and resolving utility conflicts and addressing construction issues. Our professionals have the in-house capabilities to take any project from concept to fully completed operations with the proven success of the best balance of accuracy, cost, and timeliness.
