1. Safety First: Minimizing risk and avoiding accidents on construction sites should always be a requirement and never an option. A concrete structure scanning survey is your best tool in minimizing your risk.
Because we at Utility Survey Corp. realize the severity of the risk you take on each job, our 10-Step Concrete Structure Scanning Protocol™ will provide you an extra level of comfort that every precaution has been covered before you saw-cut, core, or drill.
We are confident, based on feedback from our many long-term customers, that this is a level of assurance no other concrete structure scanning company can provide.
2. Proceed with Confidence: You should never saw-cut, core, or drill, wondering if you’re going to run into any unexpected utilities or other hazards. Why take that chance? Damaging a utility or post-tension cable can have potentially costly and/or fatal consequences.
Before any of your construction activities take place we will find and mark those hidden dangers that can more than ruin your day. With our proven and proprietary 10-Step Concrete Structure Scanning Protocol™ we at Utility Survey Corp. will clear the way so that your work may proceed with confidence.
3. Protect Profitability: Hitting a buried utility or post-tension cable can be costly and damaging to both people and property. It can seriously affect the profitability of your job. Even the smallest of incidents can cost big money in unplanned for and expensive emergency repairs.
Even if no utilities get damaged, unexpectedly running into any utility that no one knew was there may bring your project to a grinding halt anyway. A re-design may be necessary. Manpower and machinery will be idle until a solution can be arrived at.
There are just so many unanticipated factors that can affect your bottom line. Incident prevention is so much more cost effective than any cure.
Planning ahead to have Utility Survey Corp. locate and mark all utilities with our 10-Step Concrete Structure Scanning Protocol™ before you saw-cut, core, or drill, makes for a sound investment.
4. Peace of Mind: Imagine if there was a process or methodology that could significantly reduce your risk that came with an investment of as little as a fraction of 1% of the project budget, you’d probably agree that is an investment worth making, wouldn’t you?
You might be surprised to learn that our service, our "10-Step Concrete Structure Scanning Protocol™" is typically a minuscule, inconsequential cost on the average construction project. It’s what the accountants typically call a rounding error.

Unfortunately, you will be named on any lawsuit if something goes wrong and a live electric, or a post-tension cable, or some other hazard gets hit.
