Utility Coordination & Right of Way

Utility Coordination

Utility coordination is an essential component of project management. Whether for site development, infrastructure expansion, or transportation projects, utility coordination is a proactive investment in project delivery and right-of-way (ROW) management. Utility conflict analysis identifies and alleviates critical or time-sensitive delays by mitigating risks for project owners and maximizing project funding for clients.

Project owners investing in utility coordination understand the value of bringing together all stakeholders to plan, minimize conflict, avoid delays and have better regulatory compliance. GBA’s technical staff has extensive experience performing utility coordination for traditional and alternative project delivery methods by assisting with compensable agreements, status of utility reports, one-on-one coordination, training, oversight, scheduling and plan review.
