Underground Utilities & Drainage Surveys

The location of underground services is often a critical factor in any development – the cost and time scale involved in re-routing services, or having non-existent services supplied, can be a decisive factor on the viability of a scheme. It is also vitally important to ensure that existing services are identified and accurately mapped, to ensure site safety when digging or building commences.

Our team’s extensive experience, together with our use of the best modern underground mapping equipment, helps eliminate the need to excavate.

We use two main methods of underground utility detection to help us pick up the different materials used in underground pipework and cabling:

Radio Detection

The latest Radio Detection equipment is used along with signal generators and asset plans supplied by the utility companies, so that we can locate metal objects and provide details of the service locations.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) 

Where non-metallic pipes, such as plastic or asbestos cement, are detected, we use GPR to indicate the presence of services and voids.

Do you have the relevant plans from all the utility providers for your site? If not, we can obtain these on your behalf by undertaking the relevant desktop searches to obtain asset plans from all the main utility companies. These are essential when undertaking any underground survey work.
