Construction

During construction, utilities are at their most vulnerable. 1300 Locate can help to ensure that you have adequate forward planning in place and utilities are located, marked and mapped in advance. This will save you time, money and stress during the essential construction stage.

Utility locating must be done before each stage of work commences. Primary Contractors have responsibility for ensuring that utilities are located on and around the entire site and identifying associated hazards. Sub-contractors use this information to locate and expose utilities (using vacuum potholing) during each scope of work. Failure to identify and locate all utilities can have significant, and costly, consequences for a project.

It is good practice to use one locating company for the entire project so that they can become familiar with the site, saving you time and money and preventing potential damage. Early detection of utilities will save you money and assist with early streamlining of your project.

Utility detection utilised correctly will:

1.      Save you time
2.      Increase your profits
3.      Streamline your project
4.      Give your sub-contractors peace of mind
5.      Keep you in good stead with the general public and utility owners
6.      Reduce down time
7.      Reduce safety issues
8.      Create awareness
