Underground Survey

Our underground survey services enable a clear picture of the subsurface utility infrastructures in the site and the location of utilities to generate a detailed map for use by the client in the planning process of a project. The mapping process reduces time spent on planning and design and lowers the risks of safety and health and the need for costly adjustments as the project progresses.

Benefits of Using Our Underground Survey Services:

High Standard Equipment

Our Edinburgh surveyors’ team uses the most advanced and powerful tools Electro-Magnetic Locators (EML) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to obtain and analyse underground data to plan and execute your project.

Minimize Risks

Our Utility Mapping Survey provides you with the required confidence to proceed with your project as it eliminates any ‘surprises’ as the project progresses.

Complete Accuracy

We conduct real-time examination with camera images and, through on-site specialist software, provide full digital imagery. This ensures complete accuracy of our underground surveys.

Reliable Results

Our underground survey services provides you with the most reliable results presented in a complete and detailed technical report, 2D CAD drawings, and 3D Models ready for proceeding with your project.

Methods and Application of Underground Survey

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.
