We have been delivering our tried-and-true approach to the utility coordination process since 1994.
Our approach, combined with parallel relationships with the utility companies, ensures smooth and productive project coordination.
For any new transportation project, planners and engineers need to know what hazards exist and where gas, power, water and other potentially perilous utility lines lie under the ground so they can design around them. It is important to note that the majority of construction delays are caused by the surprise discovery of underground utilities.
Goodbee & Associates, Inc. has provided utility coordination services for a variety of projects ranging from planning, studies, feasibility studies, environmental assessments and impact statements, preliminary and final design and design build projects for Clients that include CDOT, RTD and numerous municipalities in the Denver area.
In addition to utility inventory and research, the company works with Prime Design Consultants to develop the utility plan sets for all phases of design, including preliminary design, final design and final bid package submittal. Utility specifications and Project Manual data are prepared to ensure a comprehensive design set of plans for the owner. In addition to plan development, utility coordination, utility clearance finalization and utility agreement negotiation are also provided by Goodbee & Associates, Inc.
With a focus on getting the job done in a cost-effective and efficient manner, and with a skill set that enables us to cover all utility-related aspects of a job, Goodbee & Associates, Inc. are truly experts in the area of Design-Build and Utilities.
We have provided utility services on the largest Design-Build jobs in the Denver and Colorado Springs area, including RTD FasTracks corridors, COSMIX, T-Rex and E-470.

GA proactively collaborates with the utilities and municipalities to produce creative design solutions; encouraging them to look at other standards and to adopt new ones if applicable, finding the most economical design and construction solutions that use the least amounts of materials with low long term maintenance costs.
