Every project that breaks ground involves some degree of risk—to property and tools, to human safety, and to budgets and profits. Mitigating utility risk means protecting your team and preventing damages, but it also means minimizing contingency costs by reducing uncertainty about the subsurface.
To mitigate risk, you need a plan that can withstand the impacts of a wide range of uncertainties and unknowns. Our maps help you manage risk with greater confidence and precision: zooming out to understand the wider context, and zooming in to gather visual evidence for more accurate predictions of contingencies and impacts.
Risk comes in multiple forms, and so should your data. Our maps tell you not only where infrastructure is located under and across your site, but also give supporting information for your planning—from the age of buried assets to the type, ownership, and current status of the utilities.
4M gives you an early view into any site, from potential RFPs under consideration to current projects between or mid-phase. Every design and construction process involves some complications: make sure that you have the most high-quality data to estimate contingency and allocate time, budget, resources, and manpower for your specific area of interest.
and see how we can shine some light on your utility strategy.
