Premier Asset Layer Map (PALM)

The Premier Asset Layer Map (PALM) enables all utility information for your project to be transposed onto a single base map.

This layered map can show single or multiple utilities for the site and can be selected and deselected at the touch of a button to suit your needs.

PALM is set to the use of utility record information in utility conflict detection & management, PAS 128 survey level definition and scope writing. The PDF can be used on handheld devices meaning it can be used on-site before any groundwork is undertaken. It’s available as an interactive PDF and DWG allowing accurate measurements of distance and area.

The PALM product is available with any speed of utility report service ordered but will be delivered on the 20th working day.

Key features:

A standard PALM consists of 5 utilities: electric, water (clean and waste), gas, Openreach (formerly BT) and Virgin Media. Where additional layers are required because of the presence of additional utilities the client will be advised of any additional fees if required.
