Client: Scott-Long Construction
Project: Leewood Health and Rehab Center – Annandale, VA
Scott-Long Construction did their due diligence at their new construction site by calling the free utility locating service, as required. The free service went to the job site and marked where the underground public utilities would be found. Scott-Long opted to also have UPI come to the site to verify all the utilities were marked, when it was discovered that the public utilities had been mismarked.
Of special importance, UPI found a utility line that veered to the right into a sidewalk where Scott-Long had plans to start digging. If the general contractor hadn’t called UPI to do a quality review of the site, they would have faced:
- Costs to fix the utility line that would have been struck
- Redesign fees to account for the utility line
- Schedule delays to the project; the time to repair a damaged utility line always varies
UPI saved Scott-Long time, money, and project delays – a goal we are committed to accomplishing for all firms in charge of site work. Email us to get our crews out on your next project.
