    How is a utility survey completed?

    Locating Equipment

    Our utility surveys in Nottingham are carried out by using various methods of locating equipment. A locator and signal generator are used to find services, also known in the industry as a CAT and Genny. This method is called EML, where the surveyor connects onto or clamps service points such as lampposts, water valves or metallic cabling to trace the direction and depth of the relevant services. This is used throughout the utility survey in Nottingham.

    GPR

    Once the EML stage has been completed GPR is then used to find any additional services. GPR uses an antenna to send electromagnetic waves into the ground which then causes a reflection shown on the screen. The image shown is examined by the surveyor to determine possible services, voids and disturbances in the ground a reading can then be taken to give an accurate depth. Using stats, markers and knowledge from years of experience the surveyor can then determine what these signatures may be.

    Technical Drawing

    Once utility surveys in Nottingham are complete, a technical drawing can be created using AutoCAD. The marks can be picked up onsite using a Total Station or GPS unit to pinpoint the location of the services found with mm accuracy. Road markings, kerb lines, building outlines and other street furnishings can also be picked up to give a more detailed perspective of the area and the services located.
