Re: Fibre Installers

You may want to consider installing warning tape above the buried conduit (detectable or not your choice). If an operator is digging in the area and starts pulling up warning tape they will know to stop digging.

Excellent point. Utility locator companies generally only locate commercial utilities, and not private utilities like data comms between buildings on a campus.

Thanks for all the tips. I'm going to have to do some in depth research.

Yes, use conduit for both mechanical protection of the cable and the ability to easily pull new cable should you ever need to.
And definitely use warning tape above the conduit, and install a tracer wire to the conduit.

If you have a property survey, attach a note with a sketch showing where the buried services are.
