Surprises Don't Belong at a Construction Site
Know The Risk Before Digging.
As an on-site Construction Manager, you’re responsible for the full lifecycle of all of your projects. The scope of work for each is ever changing, making it difficult to manage risk. The lack of visibility to critical infrastructure assets can halt any project. You’ve got to be equipped with tools that enable you to make quick and accurate decisions.
UVARA minimizes risk during each phase of a construction project. From acquisition through planning, design, construction, maintenance and disposition, our platform allows for intelligent decision making that reduces owner’s risk, saves money and ensures on-time delivery of all of your construction projects.
The consequences of not know where your underground facilities are can be extremely costly. Just ask UCLA.
Not knowing where utilities are located is the biggest risk to your project.

The Risk is Real
Updating and expanding facilities is difficult enough as every project wrestles with unknowns, but construction projects are often delayed or cancelled due to the in-field discovery of unexpected underground utilities. Without a solid asset mapping capability, the dangers remain hidden.
According to the Common Ground Alliance, more than 500,000 excavation-related damages to underground facilities occurred in 2018, up from 439,000 in 2017. This is happening at a pace of more than 1,300 times a day, 365 days a year. This is avoidable with UVARA.
