Utility Surveys

Utility Surveys are an integral part of any construction project, providing crucial data about underground services. Whether you are managing a massive construction site or planning a small-scale domestic project, the importance of identifying and mapping these utilities cannot be overstated. This article delves into the world of Utility Surveys, highlighting their significance, the precision they offer, and the cutting-edge tools and well-trained surveyors that make it all possible.

The Significance of Utility Surveys

In the United Kingdom, it is estimated that the construction industry loses a staggering £2.4 billion annually due to utility strikes. These strikes not only result in financial losses but also pose significant safety risks. Shockingly, between 2015 and 2020, 354 workers suffered life-changing injuries due to utility strikes. However, these grim statistics can be prevented through accurate identification of below-ground services. Utility Surveys are the key to ensuring both the safety and financial stability of your construction project.

Efficient Site Planning

A Utility Survey offers the best starting point for efficient site planning. By providing essential data, it enables the best design, layout, and resource allocation across all site sizes. Architects, project managers, and estate managers have all benefited from the data we provide, ensuring the success of their construction and excavation projects. In many cases, local authorities and primary contractors require underground asset details before commencing excavation activities, making our surveys a mandatory first step.

Our Survey Process

Upon receiving instructions, our surveyors promptly visit the site and employ advanced Electromagnetic Location (EML) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) techniques to map the underground utilities. After identifying all potential assets, the findings are meticulously documented using GPS technology, ensuring the accurate representation of services below ground. These results are subsequently integrated into existing or newly created topographical plans, providing a comprehensive overview of the surveyed area.

In-Depth Insights: Inspection Chamber Report Cards

For those seeking even more information, we offer inspection chamber report cards upon request. These reports provide further details and insights into the condition and makeup of chambers within the survey area, allowing for a more comprehensive understanding of the underground infrastructure.

A Full Overview with CCTV Drainage Surveys

For a complete visual representation of your underground assets, consider pairing a Utility Survey with our CCTV Drainage Survey. This combination provides an in-depth understanding of your below-ground services and their condition, allowing you to make informed decisions and reduce the risk of costly surprises during your project.


In the world of construction, Utility Surveys are a vital component of successful project planning. They offer a robust foundation for safety, efficiency, and cost-effective decision-making. Our commitment to precision, backed by cutting-edge technology and a team of highly trained surveyors, ensures that you receive the best possible data.
