Detection (survey type B)

This survey is accompanied by a Desktop Utility Report (survey type D). The detection survey is non-intrusive and conducted using at least two geophysical survey techniques. Typically, we will use Electromagnetic Location (EML) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to detect the location and depth of the services. Additionally, and unique in our industry, we also use GPS to accurately mark all of the services on a CAD plan.

Verification (survey type A)

This type of survey can be carried out alongside a Detection type B survey or just prior to site works taking place. Our engineers will visually inspect any services detected to improve the information and confidence level. Visual inspection of services can be via access points such as manholes or via excavation and exposure.
