Established in 2002 Utility Mapping Service Inc. (UMS) is a Utility Engineering (UE) firm focused on the Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) industry.

We are experts in establishing the georeferenced position of existing utility infrastructure and then accurately depicting that infrastructure in accordance with Standard ASCE/CI 38-02 .

UMS combines state of the art geophysical, bathymetric, and survey Technology with discrete non-destructive test holes to designate utility infrastructure locations.

Measuring Utility Depth

Then our data collection/management application and the latest AutoDesk® and Bentley® CAD software we can help you develop BIM and CIM models with accurate utility delineations you can depend on.

With SUE models developed by UMS project owners, designers, contractors and other involved parties can now collaboratively find resolutions to those conflicts between utility infrastructure and new civil projects well before designs are finalized or before construction begins.

3D Model of Existing Utilities

Accurate and reliable 3D models lead to a better understanding of conflicts between utility infrastructure and civil projects. Equipped with that knowledge, project owners, designers, utility and facility operators, and contractors can plan accordingly.

All of this leads to a safer project with fewer delays and less potential for utility damage litigation – Reduced Project Costs!!!!



UMS provides these services for a wide array of public and private Projects within the US.
