Writer’s Guide

Info-Excavation (alliance pour la protection des infrastructures souterraines) has written an information guide on preventive measures regarding the protection of underground infrastructures when writing an excavation bid.

The writer’s guide is the result of an excellent collaboration between stakeholders. Info-Excavation wishes to acknowledge the following participants who, by their active involvement, made it possible to achieve such a high-quality guide.

The guide provides clarity on the importance of the client’s role during the planning and design stages, allowing him to integrate these clauses in his excavating bids. Generally speaking, an excavation bid identifies the nature of the excavation work that is to be expected. But they do not mention in which work context the excavation work will be done. The bidding document contains no information or measures that need to be taken to maximize the prevention of underground infrastructures and reduce the risk of damage.
