UNDERGROUND FEATURE DETECTION

We use the latest technology for underground detection work to ensure efficiency, accuracy, repeat-ability are maximised. This helps our clients have a better understanding of what’s below them before the first dirt is turned.

Our GPR (ground penetrating radar) unit is vital when it comes to locating underground features in any town, city or community. Underground features are often forgotten as they are out of sight and out of mind. Damage to underground assets can be caused by earthworks which is why it is so important to have them accurately located and mapped.

Our GPR services provide ways of locating underground assets that have either poor or no documentation on their location. All without disturbing the ground.
