Service Tracing, Excavation and Borehole Clearance
Service Tracing, Excavation and Borehole Clearance from Utiliscan is the perfect solution for anybody wishing to have all underground services and buried apparatus located and clearly marked on the surface (inc depth where possible), or borehole/excavation locations cleared of buried services and apparatus prior to breaking ground.
Utiliscan use different types of state-of-the-art technology to induce signals into both the ground and buried utilities to allow tracing and marking of them within a 5m radius of the target area; Utiliscan surveyors will then mark a clear drill zone (in the case of borehole/excavation clearance) or in the case of site-wide tracing, the exact location of any located service, will be marked on the surface.
This service provides a surveyor c/w with all the necessary equipment to trace and mark any utilities that may be running across a large area or a specific area that is to be excavated or drilled, these utilities are clearly marked in either paint or chalk.
Should a full utility map be required (the above plus the provision of all utilities marked on to a topographical drawing) please select the full utility mapping option.
