Utility Services

To have an understanding of the buried information across any site that is to be developed is an invaluable asset to the initial design process. Pipe and cable depths, locations and routes are very important to record from a health and safety, time, and money point of view. We have staff who have undertaken Sygma utility training in the various detection equipment available including Electromagnetic locators and Ground Penetration Radar. Benchmark Surveys will to the best of our ability identify and locate buried utilities but depending on the nature of the site the percentage of all buried utilities detected will vary.

UTILITY SURVEYS

PAS128 UTILITY SURVEYS

Benchmark Surveys can carry out PAS128 Standard surveys. This will give a quality level to the method & accuracy in which the services have been located.

GPR

Ground Penetrating Radar for the confirmation of all utilities and to map non-metallic services that electromagnetic location cannot discover. GPR can also look at subsurface ground conditions, for example sink holes.

DRAINAGE

Drainage surveys for mapping drainage network ie. drainage routes, pipe sizes, invert levels, depths along pipe if required.

VIDEO PIPELINE INSPECTION

...If further investigation is required on the drainage routes, We can carry out Video Pipeline Inspection for fault finding and video record.

DIGITALLY SURVEYED & MARKED OUT ON SITE.
 

All of our Utility Survey Findings are sprayed on-site with coloured spray paint to represent the different utility services.
Chalk can also be used if required.

The exact locations of the services are then recorded with our survey equipment, so the client has a permanent digital record with co-ordinates of the locations of those utilities. 

We will then overlay the utility survey data onto a topographic survey if the client has also requested a topographic survey, or we can overlay the data onto a previous survey the client provides.


 

POST PROCESSED GPR DATA.

MULTI-CHANNEL GPR ARRAY.
 

Post processing our Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) data obtained from our advanced multi-channel GPR array. By utilising this technology, we gain access to a wealth of information beyond what can be observed solely during site work.

With the introduction of the stream DP, we now have the capability to conduct more comprehensive investigations.
