Underground utility design projects involving existing utilities require a different approach than completely new design projects. Collecting information on the existing systems has evolved over the years as new technology has come along. We've moved from paper forms, to electronic forms, to building the infrastructure network on handheld devices in the field. Getting the information to the CAD programs typically used by the engineering firms has also evolved. Utilizing newer technologies, we have been able to streamline the process while giving the client added value in the deliverables. Using the approach described has reduced errors, saved design time, and provided the client with added value.
