beforeUdig membership

Why join beforeUdig service

A beforeUdig member is any utility, local authority or similar organisation that wants to protect its underground assets from damage and or interruption. Asset owners become members of the beforeUdig service by registering the location of their underground assets and will then receive notifications of any intended works lodged as an enquiry with the beforeUdig service. By doing this, asset owners will be notified immediately when contractors or others who use beforeUdig are planning to excavate in or around their assets.

Contractors use beforeUdig because it is easy to submit a single enquiry and quickly make contact with all relevant asset owners.
