Utility Survey

Share now

A Utility Survey, also known as an Underground Survey, serves the purpose of inspecting below-ground wiring or pipes to identify the presence of water, power, fiber optics, drainage, sewage, gas, and telecommunications beneath a designated survey area. This is crucial to ensure the protection and non-interference of these services during construction activities.

Purpose of a Utility Survey

It involves non-intrusive measurements conducted before site works commence to pinpoint the positions of buried services. This proactive approach helps prevent costly delays and minimizes risks associated with construction projects. Utility surveys are applicable to various locations and projects, ranging from industrial and commercial new builds to rural areas and city center regeneration sites.

Applications of a Utility Survey

Utility surveys are employed to precisely locate underground pipelines and wires, ensuring uninterrupted services such as water, power, gas, telecommunications, fiber optics, drainage, and sewage during building or excavation works. These surveys are typically commissioned before project initiation and cross-referenced with existing records to ensure accuracy.

Benefits of a Utility Survey

The primary advantage lies in the cost and time savings on a project. Accurate location of utilities prevents potentially lengthy errors that can be challenging to rectify, making companies liable for any damage caused due to inaccuracies in their projects.

Expectations from Our Utility Surveys
Our surveys utilize radio detection and ground-penetrating radar methods to precisely identify the locations of underground utilities. The outcomes are carefully mapped and presented in CAD format, guaranteeing accuracy and enabling smooth incorporation into project planning.
