Investigations for the Engineering Phase

While the collection and use of S.U.E. (Subsurface Utility Engineering) data is critical to the design element of any project, it may only be the first step in a long range strategy for utility owners and public agencies. We will provide engineers the S.U.E. data and ensure its transfer to design engineers for the development of more accurate PS&E's.

  • The accurate designation of underground utilities is essential to successfully working in the subsurface structure. Our surveys will save you time, money and enhance the safety of your project. 
  • AEI’s Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services can aid the engineering design process by researching, designating, and locating subsurface utilities as dictated by scope. 
  • By implementing our subsurface investigation strategy, clients will be provided with the S.U.E. Quality Level B documentation, a paper blueprint and digital format of choice, clearly showing surveyed locations of existing surface and subsurface utilities within their project limits. 

AEI will designate existing utilities, structures, and survey the proposed work area. The survey plans will depict existing surface and subsurface utilities as identified in the field by AEI Corp. Any infrastructure found will be survey marked to its horizontal position. Marking the locations horizontally on surface with flagging in soil areas and chalk or water based paint on paved areas. Upon completion of the project, a scalable blueprint along with a digital format of choice will be developed referring to the compilation of data collected; showing all existing utilities, structures and appurtenances designated by AEI's investigation.

The benefits include:

  • Accurate and timely utility information to the designer
  • Possible reduction in utility relocation costs by allowing the designer to make informed design decisions around potential utility conflicts
  • Reduction in unexpected conflicts with utilities which can cause construction delays, damages, service disruptions, claims, property damage, or release contaminants and even avoid injuries or lost lives.

Engineering PhaseWith this research in mind, there is no doubt that S.U.E. can benefit projects in industries that manage, create and operate utility infrastructure, especially when project deadlines and budgets are getting tighter and with subsurface pathways becoming more complex networks.  The key to getting the most cost effective benefits out of this process however, is getting the S.U.E. survey done as early in the design phase as possible.  Having accurate utility information up front before pre-design and not waiting until the 60% plan stage, allows "smart" design decisions to be made before it's too late and helps reduce costly redesigns, unnecessary utility relocations or unknown utility complications during construction.
