    Event Description:
    Training Intent: To have designers resolve their own utility issues without SUE (utility owners identifying existing utilites) 

    Training Background: The Utility Coordination Task Force noticed an increasing trend in the number and cost of utility conflicts. Many designers have minimal experience with the differentiating between what utility appurtenances are significant to relocate and what are not. The increasing utility conflict trend also includes designers not fully investigating utility conflicts. Consequently, utility conflicts are not completely resolved before the project goes to construction. This has caused construction claims, delays, and change orders.

    Training Purpose: Educate Designers on the Risks of Impacts to Utilities (concentrating on the more expensive ones) to Improve Project Delivery. This effort will focus on the Traditional Method (submissions and markups) of adding utilities to roadway plans.

    What you will Learn: To successfully coordinate any and all utility issues during the design phase to reduce or eliminate claims and delays during construction, damages to utilities during construction, and injury or loss of life by a utility hit during construction.
