Horrocks Engineers has opened a new office in the Houston area, which is located at 17240 Huffmeister, Suite 106, Cypress, TX 77429.


Subsurface Utility Engineering in Texas

With more than 50 years of experience providing utility-related services to clients in eight states across the country, Horrocks understands how important it is to safely and efficiently collect accurate utility data. Our subsurface utility engineering (SUE) team in Texas locates and identifies existing utilities early in a project’s planning or design phase to avoid costly errors, prevent schedule delays, and reduce safety risks. Our crew is cross-trained in survey to improve accuracy and support data collection.


Horrocks’ Houston SUE Manager, Shawn Conlin, explained, “It has been my experience through ... years of utility work that the quicker you investigate, confirm, and mitigate utility conflicts on your project, the better off your project is in regards to budget discrepancies and time delays. The early data acquisition gives designers the information needed to design around complex utilities efficiently and accurately. At Horrocks, we employ a staff of utility personnel with over 100 years of combined experience doing just that.”
