Establishing the nature, depth, location, orientation and dimensions of buried utilities within a future construction site is critical to producing solid engineering designs. Accurate utility data plays a major role in mitigating unanticipated development redesigns, project delays and various other unforeseen conflicts. That’s where multiVIEW’s Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services come in.
We used to rely on disparate data to gain an understanding of subsurface assets. Whenever a change would occur, the area would be re-surveyed and data would be stored in various formats. By applying Subsurface Utility Engineering, we’ve created a database of high quality data that can be used by future contractors for years to come.
Expertise that Adds Value
At multiVIEW, we effectively manage the risks associated with underground utilities. We boast an excellent reputation that comes from more than 30 years of experience in utility data collection, mapping and management services. As a trusted leader in the industry, we are a recognized, prequalified vendor with many cities and municipalities across Ontario, as well as some of the most recognized developers in the industry.
Highest Standards in Quality Information
Our SUE practice is governed by CI/ASCE 38-02 Standards which provide the benchmark for the integrity and quality of utility data collection. It provides a framework for evaluating the integrity of data based on four Quality Levels (Quality Levels D, C, B & A), dramatically improving utility information reliability.
With a strong focus on QA/QC and our extensive experience using a variety of non-destructive geophysical investigation techniques, including ground penetrating radar (GPR) and vacuum excavation trucks, our engineers and surveyors will effectively verify the existence, condition and exact location of underground utilities.
Unparalleled Project Management
Combining our expertise in civil engineering, geophysics and surveyance, we’ll recommend and manage the best level of investigation effort based on the complexity of the site and specific needs of each client. We’ll handle all tasks involved in your SUE investigation, including utility coordination, surveying, designation, location, assessment, mapping and professional deliverables that report on the utilities in the project site for the quality level investigations achieved.
