Utility Records - As-Built Block Profiles

Utility Records reviews as-built block profile drawings submitted by engineering design consultants at the completed stage of construction. A final acceptance certificate (FAC) is issued once the drawings conform to City of Calgary standards.

As-built block profiles are detailed engineering drawings of a record showing the surface and underground features such as legal, road, waterworks, sanitary and storm sewers. The as-built block profile includes two plan views and one profile as described below:

  1. The top plan view shows the surface features - legal descriptions and bordering property data, curbs, sidewalks, etc.
  2. The utility plan view shows the underground utilities - waterworks, sanitary and storm sewers.
  3. The profile shows the utility grades, elevations and related data.

For major roads and rights of way over 30 m wide, all information on the top plan and utility plan views are combined. Below are samples of as-built block profiles:
