Subsurface Utility Engineering

Tight timelines and even tighter budgets mean construction managers must leave no stone unturned during the planning stage. Subsurface utility engineering allows them to do just that. Studies show SUE returns a quantified average of 400% in avoided costs and even more in qualitative savings. Q3 Contracting’s S.U.E. service can reduce and eliminate costs & delays associated with redesign, relocation of utilities, utility damage and contractor claims on many projects. Health and safety risks are also greatly reduced for both staff and the public. The goal of Q3 Contracting is to provide our customers with the most accurate information for project design and excavation.
