Why do I need to locate underground services?

There is a whole world of infrastructure that has been placed underground to provide services such as power, water, internet, gas, sewer etc for our day to day lives. Due to the large amount of services underground the network is complex and intricate making design and excavation around existing infrastructure difficult.

To ensure these services or utility assets are recorded accurately in a design phase or not struck and damaged in a construction or excavation phase, they need to be located at the commencement of the project. This will reduce overall project costs, minimise project risk, increase safety and protect against costly damages and liabilities.

Industry best practice is known as the 5Ps – Plan, Prepare, Pothole, Protect and Proceed. At Utility ID we conduct the first 4 essential steps in house so you can Proceed safely and lawfully with your project.
