What followed was 130 years of communications evolution that saw telephones in nearly every home, the privatisation of the network and birth of Telecom in 1987, and the arrival of the internet and mobile phone technology.

PelicanCorp’s solutions and services are focused on the protection of infrastructure, communities and the safety of workers. Our unique OneCall beforeUdig solution is deployed globally in New Zealand, Australia, US, Singapore, Ireland and the UK.
Construction designers, workers and individual homeowners use the beforeUdig service to obtain plans to indicate the position of utilities and other assets prior to commencing works and to obtain permission to work near those assets through the owner and local authority. This saves the contractor time, money and crucially keeps the workers onsite safe. On the flipside the benefit to the owner is their assets remain operational with minimal interruption to their customers and residents and with reduced costs from restoring the utility or asset to its pre damaged state.
Today more than 80% of New Zealand’s underground infrastructure such as gas, power, telecommunications and water is covered by beforeUdig’s footprint and collectively more than half a million notifications are made to our members each year where contractors are excavating.
