WHAT IS AN UNDERGROUND UTILITY SURVEY?
An underground utility survey is a type of survey used to determine the location and type of below ground utility infrastructure.
UNDERGROUND UTILITY SURVEYS COVER:
- Electricity cables
- Oil and Gas pipelines
- Water pipelines
- Drainage and sewage pipelines
- Telecoms and fibre optics cables
If an underground survey is not performed before commencing a development project, there can be serious consequences. Rectifying any damage to utilities caused by development can prove extremely costly and cause unnecessary delays to the programme.
Likewise, there are obligations for project teams to comply with Health & safety regulations, such as The Construction (Design and Management) 2015 and provide the right protection for their workers. Contractors can work confidently prior to and during excavation by using our accurate and detailed underground utility survey maps.
UNDERGROUND UTILITY SURVEYS INFORM:
- New Developments
- Retrofit and refurbishment projects
- Public realm and landscaping improvements
- Utility repairs and upgrades
- Excavations and trenching work
Data from underground utility surveys typically references the ordnance survey grid and level datum and can be combined with our Topographical surveys to give a complete understanding of the development area. Data can be supplied in 2D or 3D CAD drawing formats and added to a 3D Model if required. There is also the option to overlay an existing topographical survey
