Utility Mapping and Geographical information systems
The diversification of the utilities sector in recent years has led to greater difficulties in consolidating utilities asset information. This coupled with incomplete and inaccurate utility records can mean there are many unknowns and risks when planning and undertaking both design and construction work.

Virtual Trial Pits
Avoid the need for invasive and disruptive excavations where detailed information within any local area is essential, surveys are undertaken using the latest GPR systems and techniques. Client will receive a detailed CAD drawing and/or GIS output as required to assist with their design.
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is the tool of choice for those who need to quickly and easily identify the presence of buried utility infrastructure, both metallic and non-metallic.Modern advances in technology, particularly in the design and construction of buried utilities, have resulted in an ever increasing use of non-metallic materials. GPR Locator professionals know the difficulties associated with non-metallic utilities and that conventional locating tools leave you a few pieces short. So let the GPR help you fill in the missing pieces. GPR is the only technology available that does not require a physical connection to the utility, nor does it rely on radiating electromagnetic (EM) fields that may or may not be present or detectable.
GPR is not only used to locate underground utilities. It can also be used to find:
Voids and cavities
Large solid objects
