PG&E needed to lay utility lines in a new residential development with no existing records. Charge, the EPC in charge of the job, hired a premium locator to mark the area, but brought in Exodigo to conduct a Quality Assurance layer.
Exodigo scanned the area and detected twice as many lines as the premium locator. After verifying these findings with test potholes, Charge redesigned the project based on Exodigo’s utility-free areas (“green corridors”), enabling them to avoid five utility strikes from missed lines and reduce the number of required potholes by 50 percent.
Santa Rosa, CA
Exodigo exceeded all our expectations. They found twice as many lines as what the premium locators we called had found. This avoided a number of utility strikes that were in the right-of-way and would have been a major issue for our team and the execution of the project."
