Underground Utility Surveys (GPR)

Do you require a non-invasive Underground Utility Survey to accurately detect, trace & identify Underground Services ?

At Chanton Survey delivering accurate & reliable Survey Data is the foundation of what we do.

An Underground Utility Survey can be invaluable to identify pipes, cables, ducts, sewers, gas pipes, foul drainage & surface water drainage routes before major construction starts. Identifying Underground Services as early as possible on-site is crucial to avoid problems further down the line.

How we do it ?

We integrate Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Radio Frequency Locators, GNSS, Total Stations capture comprehensive Survey Data relating to sub-surface services. This data is combined with detailed Topographical Survey information to produce an accurate Underground Utility Survey.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is very effective at capturing images through surfaces such as concrete, rock or soil & identifying non-metallic utilities like gas pipes and Pvc water mains.

Underground Utility Surveys aid in the Planning & Design process for a wide range of Construction & Engineering purposes. We provide high levels of detail, accurately Surveyed, edited & presented to suit your needs. The Surveys often feed into other services such as Construction/Engineering & Drainage Analysis.
