    There are some good SUE firms in Florida Yahoo.......open your mind to a little change. One of them is headed up by a very solid poster on this board. Check in with him. Talk to Ninja about the SUE firm he worked for, ask OldSchool, he's got nearly 20 years in both SUE and Contract Locating.

    Just a question, are SUE firms having a hard time getting work these days? Are their services more of a "luxury" than a necessity? Just wondering.

    Yes, it has been getting very quiet for me here for that very reason Spray, SUE services are considered a "Luxury" service for the project owners that don't think. Or they just dump all of the utility responsibilities directly on the contractor to figure out. The contractors have the mindset that they will call in a ticket and keep their fingers crossed, and will field fit everything they can. What they can't, they will dump the redesign back on the engineer. It is a vicious, wasteful cycle. The smart ones are more than willing to pony up a little bit of extra money to get it done right. Designating/Mapping/Test Holes/Test Hole Mapping properly utilized throughout the design and construction process.

    Not sure, I really don't have that answer. I would have to say there is probably a lack of people pushing for it. And most likely, those people aren't pushing for it because they aren't aware there is an alternative.
