In France, strict legislation requires that utility companies locate underground utilities before construction and mark them accurately on the ground throughout project phases. However, written records are often out of date, making it difficult for utility teams to ensure their field markings are correct without intrusive methods. 13,000 gas lines alone are damaged in France every year, across thousands of construction sites. GRDF and VINCI decided to test Exodigo's solution for safety, budget, and compliance needs on future construction projects by comparing Exodigo's findings to three existing records.
GRDF and VINCI (through VINCI's foresight and innovation platform, Leonard) partnered to test Exodigo's underground mapping capabilities. They asked Exodigo to provide a complete map of underground assets on a site in a suburb of Paris, including line properties and identities.
“Promising results for improving ground markings and preventing damage to structures on buried networks!"
