Slide2 l.jpg
GOAL: EXCHANGE

To improve the accuracy and efficiency of preliminary utility location by employing common CADD software and utility-specific tools to create electronic plan mark-ups.


Traditional process l.jpg
Traditional Process: EXCHANGE

  • Conduct topographic survey

  • Designer produces plan sheets with topo survey and 30% design

  • Mailed to UAO with request for mark-up

  • UAO marks up plan sheet with colored pencil using UAO drafting standard

  • UAO returns hardcopy plans to designer

  • Designer transfers hardcopy information into CADD file

  • Designer produces hardcopy and sends to UAO for verification


Electronic process l.jpg
Electronic Process: EXCHANGE

  • Notify UAO’s of upcoming project

  • Conduct topographic survey

  • Designer transmits survey & blank mark-up file to UAO

    • MicroStation (DGN) Format, unless previously coordinated

  • UAO’s conduct mark-up with CADD and FDOT Utility Tools

  • UAO returns mark-up file to designer (topo survey excluded)

  • Designer compiles UAO mark-ups to produce plan sheets

  • Designer transmits PDF to UAO via email for verification


  • Benefits l.jpg
    Benefits: EXCHANGE

    • Time Savings (reduction in request/response)

    • Encourages Standardization of Plan Mark-up

    • Allows Historical Archiving for Wide-Scale Use

    • Improved Accuracy and Clarity of Plan Submittal

    • Eliminates Need for Hardcopy Retention

    • Format Promotes Internal/External Use

    • Reduced Paper Consumption (Save the Trees!)

    • Reduced liability
