Subsurface Utility Engineering Projects

On-Call SUE Services

Close coordination with Duke Energy and Archer Westin (railroad) was critical as numerous transmission lines, with their associated easements, criss-crossed the property and the required future modification of an existing spur line.  LDSI supplied GIS mapping and analysis to assist in site selection and has performed all of the boundary/ALTA, topographic and wetland surveys to date.

Navy Clean 1000

They choose the right equipment from the get-go and there were no delays. Of all the work they performed, I saw but one stake out of place, which they caught as well and corrected. We will see in the final product, but they were willing to do whatever we required and I think they produced an excellent product.” and from another site manager, “Thanks so much, just a quick note to let you know I’m very happy with the crews you have sent down here they are very professional and make my job easy. Please extend my thanks to your crews I will recommend your company for all future work here in the Lejeune area. They are by far the best surveyors I have worked with in a while.”
