The Solution

Our Creative Approach

T. Baker Smith, LLC was contracted to provide subsurface utility engineering (SUE) services to assist in the placement of a new electric distribution structure within an existing facility in Port Fourchon, LA.  The design of the structure included an elevated platform, multiple poles and transformers as well as associated buried cabling and conduits, all within a very congested area. Records research was conducted, but no drawings or as-built data for existing utilities was available.  Surveying the above-ground appurtenances within the area revealed the likely presence of multiple telecommunications lines, buried electric lines, gas and fuel pipelines, and water lines. These utilities were designated electronically, surveyed, and mapped according to CI/ASCE 38-92 standards. Several conflicts were identified between the design and the existing buried facilities. TBS performed a SUE Level A to verify the precise locations of the existing lines at the areas of potential conflict, which allowed the project engineer to adjust the placement of key structures and resolve these conflicts prior to construction.
