Our Utility Surveys include a full range of underground tracing and mapping solutions that will identify all of the relevant underground utilities present on your site. Whatever project you are working on, it is essential that you have an accurate Utility Survey carried out. Not only does this reduce the risk of costly mistakes, but it will also help you identify any unforeseen complications that you may have missed.

What Is A Utility Survey?

A Utility Survey is an invaluable service for any type of construction project which includes a site with hidden or unexplored underground infrastructures. Here at Target, we utilise a variety of techniques, such as EML and GPR, to carry out both 2D and 3D Utility Surveys that can trace any underground services that could impact your construction project. 

Our Utility Surveys trace and map all main underground utilities so you are fully aware of any potential hazards to your development. This includes electrical mains, sewage systems, gas and water mains, communication infrastructure, heating, fibre optics and much more. 

Do I Need a Utility Survey?

Utility Surveys ensure that you get it right the first time around by giving you and your colleagues an all-encompassing picture of your site. By doing this before any construction or engineering work begins, you will be reducing the risk of any complications arising as well as avoiding any unforeseen costs that are literally hidden underneath your feet. 

The information provided by your Utility Survey will allow you to fully understand the subsurface elements of your site. Not only will this help you avoid costly mistakes, but it will also help create a safer site environment for all. 

Our Utility Surveying services can also be incorporated into our Topographical Surveys to create an all-encompassing overview of your site above and below ground.


How Could A Utility Survey Benefit My Site?

  • Our Utility Survey can identify, trace and map all underground services, utilities and hidden infrastructures present at your site. This will enable you to make more informed decisions, allowing you to dictate the best way of proceeding with your project. And increasing the likelihood of a smooth and efficient design and build phase. 
  • The data from our Utility Surveys is analysed in meticulous detail to ensure no follow-up site visits are needed. This allows you to identify the best areas to carry out any excavations, boreholes or piling! 

Certified to PAS 128 Standards, the current specification for underground utility detection, verification and location services.

Underground Utility Mapping describes the process that a Utility Surveyor performs – this includes identifying and recording all of the underground utilities in a specific area. At Target, we generally collate all of this information and add it to one of our Topographical Surveys.

Here at Target, all of our Utility Surveys are carried out to PAS 128 specifications. Although this is not mandatory, it is the most commonly referenced and used specification.
