Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) Services

SUE Services in Chipley, FL

SSMC specializes in SUE services in Chipley, FL and the surrounding areas. Subsurface utility engineering entails identifying and examining the underground facilities of an area or plot of land. SUE is very important during the construction process because it helps identify any risks from the beginning of the project. Vertical and horizontal underground utility data helps avoid loss of revenue, damage, and delays. Our SUE Division adheres to the ASCE‐38‐02 standard for all quality levels for Collection and Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data.

We use the most advanced electronic sensing technology including GPR units and collection software to ensure that all data is accurate and aligns with client requirements. With several years of industry experience, we offer professional vacuum excavation in any location due to the compact nature of our outfitted rigs. Our primary service areas and specialties include Tampa subsurface utility engineering (SUE), Orlando subsurface utility engineering (SUE) services and Jacksonville subsurface utility engineering (SUE) services.

VVH Investigations

Our internal SUE Division has the tools and resources to identify and investigate Verified Vertical Elevation and Horizontal Locations (VVH). We have developed our processes to deliver the most streamlined mobilizations and timelines within our industry.

Vacuum Excavation

Vacuum excavation includes exposing subsurface utilities in conflict areas using specialized equipment. It is best practice to schedule an excavation before or during construction to identify and fix any issues before they get worse and risk delaying the project.
