Asset Damage Prevention Services and Solutions

About This Brand

Established in 2012, Benchmark provides damage prevention solutions to utility companies and municipalities. Benchmark also provides private utility-locating services to homeowners and contractors, with 24/7 service to its clients.

Benchmark is responsible for eliminating or reducing damages to underground utilities during any kind of excavation. Through the 811 call center, Benchmark locates underground facilities through established on-call contracts, and is responsible for marking gas, water, sewer, electric and fiber lines.

The company works diligently to build lasting relationships within the industry. Benchmark’s contracts typically span several years, so providing the highest-quality work and outstanding customer service is the top priority, after ensuring that all safety measures are taken before, during and after each project. On its largest contract, the firm boasts a 99.99% accuracy ratio.

Our Services

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) — Benchmark employs this non-destructive, geophysical technology that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. The goal is to detect subsurface objects, changes in material properties, and voids and cracks.

811 Locating — The company contacts 811 before starting any project to avoid costly mistakes, bypass underground utilities and protect lives as well as the utility’s infrastructure.

Private Utility Locating — Public utility companies locate only the facilities they own. While they are responsible for locating a utility from the main to the meter, the utility from the meter to the building is privately owned, so the property owner is responsible for marking the utility at that point. Benchmark is ready to help property owners who need this service.

Watch Protect — In addition to its locating services, Benchmark offers a suite of proactive solutions that support safe digging, including watch-and-protect and specialized site services at high-risk excavations.
