A beforeUdig member is any utility, local authority or similar organisation that wants to protect its assets from damage and/or interruption from third party damage by excavation works. Asset owners become members of the beforeUdig service by registering the location of their assets and will then receive notifications of any intended works lodged as an enquiry with the beforeUdig service. By doing this, asset owners will be notified immediately when contractors or others who use beforeUdig are planning to excavate in or around their assets.

At the end of 2017 beforeUdig had more than 160 registered members, we received more than 160,000 excavation enquiries and notified members more than 600,000 times of work taking place near one of their assets.
