A. MORTON THOMAS and Associates, Inc.'s (AMT) Subsurface Utility Engineering Division offers a wide range of options for any underground utility structure issues. AMT is committed to our clients from the pre-planning stage through construction. We understand our clients' need for timely and economical services. AMT delivers a high quality, accurate service with support from our expert team of designers, engineers, planners and surveyors.
The American Society of Civil Engineers has implemented a standard of subsurface utility engineering manual entitled CI/ASCE 38-02. Utilizing this criteria, AMT collects and depicts reliable data for existing utilities that is critical for making informed decisions and supporting risk management protocol regarding the impact of these utilities on this project.
Whether you are a contractor, developer, engineer, architect or owner, our unique approach to your subsurface needs is unmatched. Contact AMT for subsurface utility engineering or exploration services on your next important project!
Key Subsurface Utility Engineering services provided by AMT are:
Quality Level-A: also known as "locating", is the use of non-invasive vacuum excavation at critical points to determine the precise horizontal and vertical position of underground utilities, as well as the type, size, condition, composition and other important characteristics.
Quality Level-B: also known as "designating", involves the use of surface geophysical prospecting techniques to determine the existence and horizontal position of underground utilities. Two-dimensional marking information is obtained utilizing APWA color codes.
Quality Level-C: involves visible inspection of above-ground utility facilities, such as manholes, valve boxes, posts, etc., and correlating this information with existing utility records.
Quality Level-D: information comes solely from existing utility records. This helps to provide for an overall "feel" of the underground utilities.
Additional Services: AMT also provides Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), GIS, vacuum excavation, utility mapping as well as other geophysical services.
