Underground utility survey is done using two major equipments, namely the Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) and the Electro-Magnetic Locators (EML). GPR transmits an Electro-magnetic pulse at various frequencies into the ground, which are recorded on-site. The recorded sections of scanned data is assessed and analysed for possible targets using specialist software; from which output is integrated into a utility survey model and presented in a concise and easy-to-understand way.
We offer a wide range of underground surveys for detecting, verifying and locating underground utilities across Edinburgh. Our techniques for underground surveys provide for detailed understanding of underground conditions before doing any excavations, drilling, piling or boreholes on site. We have conducted several underground surveys across Edinburgh to identify safe areas ahead of impending invasive works. Receive the most advanced underground survey services beyond reproach; all in accordance with the BSI standards “PAS 128 – Specification for Underground Utility Detection”.
