Ensure safe incident-free working and minimise financial losses, risks of damaging underground services on your all building and excavation projects.
Depending on the project objectives, we provide professional underground services location in accordance to AS5488-2013 Subsurface Engineering Standard, tailored to purpose, site and geographic location including highly-congested urban environment.
Understanding your needs, intended works, anticipated risk levels helps us suggest suitable risk management approaches that meet AS5488-2013 legal requirements, on-time and within project budget, as classed below.
Profit, Safety and Risk Management
Our underground services location procedure, marking and reporting is in accordance to accordance to AS5488-2013 Subsurface Engineering Standard. Depending on the risk management objectives / specifications, site location, depth and nature of targets, we utilise medium-to-low frequency (80-900 MHz frequency) Ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology to survey underground targets.
Buried services may include metallic and non-metallic services including PVC conduits, Optical fibre lines etc. Depending on size and depth of target, GPR may miss detection of PVC and small non-conductive objects. In addition to GPR, we utilise Electromagnetic induction (EMI) techniques using a transmitter (Tx) / receiver (Rx), tracing wire rods, Sondes for active locating or passive locating of all services including: Live, dead, inactive, abandoned, metallic or non-conductive.
