Maser Consulting PA, a multidiscipline consulting and engineering design firm, has opened a new office in Lakewood, Colorado. This location has been strategically selected to support the demand of Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services anticipated throughout the state in response to changes in underground utility location requirements.
“Establishing services in the Denver area was a strategic move for us to expand as well as to address a change in requirements prior to excavation services,” said Executive Vice President and CAO of Maser Consulting Leonardo E. Ponzio. “Employing this level of subsurface investigation prior to breaking ground on projects minimizes damage to these facilities while taking community safety to a higher level.”
Maser Consulting has hired Gregory W. Jeffries, CUC, as SUE Discipline Leader who is charged with overseeing the firm’s SUE services nationally. Mr. Jeffries has over 3 decades of experience within the utility location industry with extensive involvement with large SUE projects.
Geographic Discipline Leader for SUE services, Prasit Frazee, will be managing these services from the Lakewood location. Mr. Frazee has over 18 years of specialization in Subsurface Utility Engineering and related fields. Mark Hall, PLS has been hired as Geographic Discipline Leader in charge of developing a full line of survey services and facilitate the firm’s expansion of service lines throughout the Colorado region.
The Colorado Subsurface Utility Engineering Law (SB18-167) now requires licensed professional engineers, who are designing excavation, to submit the project utility location request. The engineering plan must also meet certain standards as described in the American Society of Civil Engineers ASCE 38-02, Standard Guideline for the Collection and Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data.
