S.U.E.

Subsurface Utility Engineering (S.U.E.) is in a nutshell, vacuum utility potholing and private utility locating. S.U.E. tasks essentially involve pre-design investigative processes of vertical and horizontal locations under the ground. These processes allow topside investigation of existing utilities in order to verify whether a proposed new utility or utility pipeline installation in that area would be feasible.

Many consider S.U.E. to be the damage prevention solution to consulting engineers. S.U.E. helps ensure that there are no underground utility conflicts once plans are approved and underground pipeline construction has begun. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So goes S.U.E., in preventing underground utility conflicts in the design and preconstruction phase of any new construction project.

Subsurface Utility Engineering SUE

Subsurface utility engineering SUE refers to a practice that utilizes different types of tools to identify the location and condition of subsurface pipelines. Acquiring accurate data is essential for helping pipeline companies minimize jobsite dangers and work delays.

The process of subsurface utility engineering SUE was developed in early 90s and was primarily used by the Federal Highway Administration. Today, it is an industry standard utilized for nearly all types of pipeline construction including water pipes, sewer systems, and storm water drainage systems.

Subsurface Utility Engineering Companies

Subsurface utility engineering (SUE) companies are in charge of duties associated with utility design and potholing, mapping, locating, coordination, and condition assessment. SUE allows contractors to locate existing subsurface utilities and avoid pipeline utility conflicts.

Working with subsurface utility engineering companies, such as Kana Pipeline, can reduce project costs and minimize delays. Companies that utilize SUE technology have access to a variety of detection tools to provide accurate underground information.

SUE is a process that allows the SUE companies to utilize multiple tools and technologies throughout the designating and locating portion of a project. At Kana, we utilize ground-penetrating radar, vacuum excavation, and multiple frequency pipe and cable locate systems.

Subsurface Utility Engineering

Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) is a process that has been known to save potentially thousands of dollars in underground pipeline design simply by addressing wet and dry pipeline utility conflicts well in advance of any subsurface utility installation. Subsurface utility engineering is necessary in the design phase when planning, for example, a construction project that requires new or upgraded sewer, water pipeline, or storm drainage systems.

Subsurface utility engineering encompasses many different engineering activities. According to the standard for SUE, developed in 2003 by The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Standard Guideline for the Collection and Depiction of Subsurface Utility Data, Subsurface Utility Engineering is defined as a branch of engineering practice that involves managing certain risks associated with: utility mapping at appropriate quality levels, utility coordination, utility relocation design and coordination, utility condition assessment, communication of utility data to concerned parties, utility relocation cost estimates, implementation of utility accommodation policies, and utility design.
