November 15th, 2017 | Featured Episodes

In Episode 6: Designing Zero Damages we take a look at what goes into the design and safe construction of a vital infrastructure project with HBK Engineering in downtown Chicago. We talk with an HBK locator mapping fiber locates into a GIS mapping system and interview HBK VP Jim Jackson on a fiber job in downtown Chicago. Locate, design, verify, build. All this and more goes into the ultimate goal of making of a consolidated base map of all utilities. HBK is showing us the way, getting it done, today. Accuracy in data collection, smart design, and the sharing of data from survey through construction by all parties involved must lead the future of damage prevention. Damage prevention begins at the design phase.
