Utility Surveys

Utility Surveys

Utility mapping surveys provide critical information on below ground conditions, clearly showing all manner of obstacles (utilities, voids, foundations etc), their depth, position and type. What’s more, this can usually be achieved without disturbing the ground and with minimal disruption to the public or other site workers.

From power, gas, water and telecoms to fibre-optics, drainage and sewers, our survey teams pick up all services in accordance with BSI PAS 128 2014, the current British Standard for underground utility detection. From an initial desktop study and site reconnaissance to the detection and physical verification phases, our team enforce best practice throughout the entire project.

With over 30 years’ experience L&M Survey Services are leading the way in Utility Mapping Services. The accurate location of existing services is an integral part of the process of planning and constructing a new building or a new service route.

  • Train Station Platforms & Tracks
  • Hospitals
  • Schools
  • Highways
  • Brown Field Sites
  • Motorways
  • Housing & Developments
  • Cities
  • Airports
  • Local Authority Developments

Detailed, accurate plans which show where utility services are located allow a safer working environment and a cost-effective way to help plan any construction or building works.

Primarily using Electro Magnetic Detection (EMD) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) techniques utilising the most up to date instruments available. All information is mapped by topographical survey techniques and is presented in such a way that it is easy to understand and identify the services.

Our comprehensive survey drawings are vastly superior to industry wide public utility plans, and our consistency of staffing will see the same team survey, process & report the job to ensure the highest possible quality of results.
