Our typical Study comprises the following elements:

  • Field inspection – we measure, record and photograph each attribute e.g. inspection covers, man holes, etc.
  • Geotechnical investigation report
  • GPR analysis to provide accurate and thorough site investigation
  • Topographical surveying using topcon 9005A robotic total station EDM
  • Marking out of high voltage cables in substations and providing detail report of depth and position
Horizontal Directional Drilling
Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is a steerable, trenchless directional boring method of installing underground pipes, conduits and cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface launched drilling rig. Horizontal Directional Drilling minimises environmental disruption and impact upon the surrounding area, and is used when trenching or excavating is not practical.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
Ground Penetrating Radar technology allows you to see the position and depth of pipes and cables in real time, a non-destructive, geophysical method of penetration that can be used in a variety of ground formation including rock, clay, soils, pavements and roads.

By using radar pulses to image the subsurface, GPR can detect objects, changes in ground formation.
