What we do

A drainage survey being carried out

We supply three core services:

  • Utility mapping – By using the latest generation of electromagnetic survey equipment we can detect metallic pipes, power cables and drainage routes and provide their exact position, depth and if required photographic evidence.
  • Land surveys – We provide a complete range of topographical/land/building surveys; combined with our underground utility detection service, this gives you the most complete picture available of your project.
  • Utility record information – we will source and collate the statutory utility records for your site, providing you with a comprehensive package of information from which to act. We can either supply the maps as received from the utility providers or plot all their data onto a single map in digital format. This provides a useful first step to help you analyse precisely where you may need to carry out on-site utility surveys.
