Highways – Utility Search case studies

We have undertaken C2 utility asset searches for a number of long linear routes on UK motorways. For each project we have delivered a Utility Search report and an interactive Premier Asset Layered Map (PALM) in PDF and DWG format.

The A14

What did we do?
We provided complete Utility Searches and a PALM for the entire route of one of the UK’s largest road schemes – The A14.

Size of site:
We consolidated a complex 40km linear route into a co-ordinated map involving 30 mapping tiles of utility information, making it clear and simple for our client and the construction team on site.

Key facts:

  • We mapped over 6,000 hectares on our PALM and Utility Searches.
  • We gathered and consolidated information from over 2,000 utility plans.
  • We combined 17 utility layers onto a single interactive map.
  • We ensured we complied with health and safety guidance and the Cabinets office requirements for Stage 2 BIM where all records must be held and managed electronically.
  • We created view ports for our clients, allowing for easy access to the individual tiles.

Our Client for this said ‘we used the PALM every day on this infrastructure project’
