Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) is a process that utilizes Engineering, Surveying, and Mapping to identify and locate underground utilities during the early development of a project. The SUE process can be used for public works or private projects in conjunction with any excavation activity such as the placement of new utilities, upgrading existing utilities, or roadway construction or improvements.


Four major activities are involved in Subsurface Utility Engineering:


Designating is the use of the surface geophysical techniques to determine the existence and approximate horizontal position of underground utilities.


Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) offers the latest advancements in SUE. GPR is a cost effective, non-intrusive geophysical investigation method for locating subsurface features.


Locating is the use of non-destructive vacuum excavation equipment at critical points along a subsurface utility’s path to determine the precise horizontal and vertical position, size, composition and the condition of buried utilities.


Data Management involves surveying and mapping the utility information obtained by designating, GPR and locating to provide its location in relation to the provided project control and providing the information in CAD and/or GIS format.

We provide SUE solutions for:
