Best practise: Our guiding documents

1. American Society of Civil Engineers Standards ASCE/CI 38-02
When subsurface utilities are discovered during construction, the costs of remediation and the potential for damage is very high. So data accuracy is critical. Without accurate data engineers can't make informed decisions and support risk management protocols.

This Standard ensures that everyone on a project knows how to reduce risk because we have improved the reliability of information on existing subsurface utilities in a defined manner.

PAS 128 provides a robust methodology for delivering utility surveys in the UK. It focuses on levels of accuracy – referred to as Survey Category Types – that you can specify when requiring a PAS 128 compliant underground utility survey.

As the British standard document regarding the specification for underground utility detection, verification and location, we use PAS 128 to ensure all our underground investigations are carried out to the highest standards.
3. ISO 55001:2014

ISO 55001 is a framework for an asset management system that will help your business to pro-actively manage the lifecycle of your assets, from acquisition to decommission.

This system helps you to manage the risks and costs associated with owning assets, in a structured, efficient manner. It supports continual improvement and ongoing value creation.
