Utility Engineering Services

SAM’s utility engineering services help owners and developers capture a more complete picture of existing site infrastructure, laying the groundwork for faster and more reliable planning, design, construction, and utility relocation.

As the nation’s largest combined geospatial and inspection solutions firm, SAM can rapidly pivot to adapt to changes on the ground. With the help of the industry’s most innovative technologies, our team provides results with unprecedented accuracy and speed.

Experience at every level of service

SAM offers both geospatial and inspection services expertise. From surveying and mapping through Subsurface Utility Engineering, utility coordination, and utility construction monitoring and verification, we streamline your program from beginning to end.

Working up front with stakeholders to identify a job’s unique needs and constraints, we develop a recommended approach. From there, our licensed engineers and experienced project managers can move concept development, conflict identification, engineering design, and preliminary construction activities in concert, all in accordance with regulatory requirements.
