Our team uses the latest advancements in design, scheduling, and cost estimating technology — backed up by extensive field analysis — to ensure every project is designed and managed effectively.

Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE)

For services and teaming opportunities, contact Roy Payne, PE, or Robert Williams, PE, at 225-766-7400.

Construction delays and conflicts are often a direct result of utilities being unidentified and improperly located. Many of these issues can be resolved prior to construction by using Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services, which utilizes a variety of non-destructive techniques to locate and identify existing buried utilities. These utilities can then be accurately mapped to aid in the advanced planning of a project by identifying the utilities that need to be relocated and those that may be avoided. Utility mapping services can be provided for any SUE Quality Level, described as follows:

  • Quality Level D: Identifies and & tentatively locates utilities based on records research and interviews.
  • Quality Level C: Physical survey of visible above ground utility features and markings to correspond with utility record information for each of the markings identified and includes Quality Level D.
  • Quality Level B: Determines the existence and approximate horizontal location of subsurface utilities. Ground Penetrating Radars (GPR) and other non-destructive techniques are commonly used and includes Quality Levels C and D.
  • Quality Level A: Provides 3D mapping of existing utilities based on information derived from hydro-excavating and other means to identify & locate utilities. The resulting 3D maps may be used to either design around potential utility conflicts or prepare utility relocation plans and includes Quality Levels B, C, and D.

Our SUE professionals have over 15 years of experience in: utility record research, coordination with utility companies, and non-destructive identification of existing utilities using advanced utility locating and hydro-excavating equipment. We also recently added a GPR unit to our SUE equipment. Providence is not only able to identify and map the existing utilities, but also able to provide utility relocation and oversight services during or prior to construction to minimize conflicts. 

Construction Engineering & Inspection (CE&I)

For services and teaming opportunities, contact Roy Payne, PE, Robert Williams, PE , or Marissa Lingoni at 225-766-7400.

Our Construction Engineering and Inspection (CE&I) team is committed to ensuring all projects are executed in accordance with plan specifications, and are completed on schedule. Our qualified professionals have the background and expertise to manage, inspect, and document entire transportation projects while also ensuring consistent communication with the client or agency.

Our reliable processes not only allow us to be proactive on any potential issues, but also provide a roadmap for ensuring the entire scope of work is fulfilled. Our engineers are a valuable resource throughout the entire project lifecycle who can recommend cost-effective issue resolutions to keep the project moving forward and on track, with the highest level of quality. Specific CE&I services include: daily inspections, detailed record keeping, contractor coordination, issue resolution, budgetary audits, schedule management, quality assurance & quality control, value engineering, cost estimating, and change order pricing.
