Utility relocations, whether you plan for them or not, present the greatest potential for schedule delays on infrastructure projects. One of the primary goals of utility coordination is to minimize the need for relocations through early identification and communication with the project design team, reducing claims and expensive delays during construction. Engaging T2 Utility Engineers' Utility Coordinators helps ensure a well-managed approach to identifying and resolving the myriad of utility systems within a project footprint so construction can progress smoothly.
T2 Utility Engineers' Utility Coordination team has the holistic knowledge to successfully guide you through the complex utility conflict resolution process. Our experienced Utility Coordinators have backgrounds in utility design standards, roadway construction management, and agency processes. We work with utility owners and agencies every day and understand the requirements and procedures. Combined with specialized communication skills and processes to navigate the detailed phases of utility coordination, our team allows your staff to focus on other project priorities.
What is the benefit of utility coordination?
Utility Coordination allows for the early identification of utility conflicts using record information such as permit logs and utility records. An experienced team, like T2 Utility Engineers, will identify the potential for utility conflicts and work with the stakeholders to determine the most advantageous method to resolve the conflicts. Sometimes there is need for further investigation such as Subsurface Utility Engineering or surveying to have the information required to develop a comprehensive plan and strategies to reduce the number of utility unknowns during construction. We provide a full range of Utility Coordination services to help ensure the constructability of your projects.
