Utility Designation

Experienced UMS engineers and technicians will use both conventional and advanced 2-D and 3-D geophysical survey tools and methods in combination with state-of-the-art GPS technology to designate your underground features for your next project. 


That data can then be used by our clients for special purposes, or that data can be used by UMS to build both 2D and 3D utility CAD SUE models which can be incorporated into your project’s BIM or CIM.
That data can also be used by our clients, to build “as-built” records or GIS models of their facility, using the clients applications.
Our engineers and technicians understand both the strengths and weaknesses of the various geophysical tools and methods that we employ to designate underground features for your facility or project.
Our tool box includes:

RD 8000 Pipe and Cable Locators

Vivax-Metrotech Spar 300© 3D Pipe and Cable Locators

Geonics EM-61 Metal Detectors

SSI ML-1 Magnetic Locators

IDS Stream C Ground Penetrating Radar
