Professional SUE Services

At SSMC, we pride ourselves in offering the best, most comprehensive, professional utility locating and engineering services in Central Florida. Our Subsurface Utility Engineering SUE Division complies with all Washington County and Florida Highway Administration (FHWA) regulations. It relies on the most current electronic sensing devices, collection software, and ground penetrating radar (GPR) units in order to provide a deliverable that exceeds expectations. GPR units allow us to detect the location of certain underground facilities to provide information in the design and construction phase of a project to avoid damage to the utility.

Our projects include extensive Route surveys, commercial developments, construction support, design, and more. Our resources and dedication remain with the client from start to finish to resolve all utility questions or concerns you may have. SSMC’s Subsurface Utility Engineering Division adheres to the ASCE‐38‐02 standard for all quality levels (A, B, C, D) for Collection and Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data. In addition to Jacksonville, Florida, we also specialize in Chipley subsurface utility engineering (SUE) services, Tampa subsurface utility engineering (SUE) services, and Orlando subsurface utility engineering (SUE) services.

Utility Locating & Engineering

Subsurface Utility Engineering, or SUE, is a form of engineering dedicated to accurately locating and engineering underground utilities. At SSMC, we utilize the most current, state-of-the-art technology, devices, and software to guarantee the data received and delivered is of the highest quality levels. Our vacuum excavation team possesses decades of expertise and can provide precise excavations in any location due to our outfitted rigs’ compact nature. We also perform hydrographic surveys, which allow us to collect data such as the depth and configuration of certain bodies of water.

We strive to offer our clients the most efficient, cost-effective SUE services using current electronic sensing devices, GTAC collection software, GPR, and records research, performing highly mobile, non-destructive vacuum excavation (test holes) equipment to positively identify underground facilities. Our goal is to provide the most comprehensive land surveying and mapping services in Central Florida. For this reason, we also offer our Orlando land surveying and mapping, Tampa land surveying and mapping, Jacksonville land surveying and mapping, Chipley land surveying and mapping, and Dothan land surveying and mapping services.
