WE CAN LOCATE IT ALL, ANYWHERE.

Our Locators are experts in their field. It is through regular and rigorous training that they are able to deliver results for every client. All of our work is completed under AS- 5488-19– Classification of Subsurface Utility Information.

 

Comprehensive reports are provided in real time, ensuring efficiencies in time and cost. Our team have all the equipment necessary to undertake jobs from major infrastructure projects to geotechnical investigation work.

ELECTROMAGNETIC DETECTION

SERVICES THAT CAN BE DETECTED USING ELECTROMAGNETIC DETECTION INCLUDE:

  • Conductive underground pipes and cables

  • Communications Infrastructure

  • Electrical Infrastructure

  • Water and Gas Mains

  • Unknown Services

For conductive or metallic services, we induce an electrical current into the service and trace the location, direction and depth within a specified area.

 

Our locators provide a utilities location report and consultation with you to explain our findings and points of conflict.

 

GROUND PENETRATING RADAR

SERVICES THAT CAN BE LOCATED USING GPR INCLUDE:

  • Underground Pipes and Cables

  • Unknown Services

  • Non-Conductive Assets

  • Voids and Cavities

  • Ground Disturbances

To locate underground services that are non-conductive, we use Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). Our GPR units emit and receive reflected signals from subsurface services up to 1000 times per minute. The added benefit of GPR detection is that it is non-destructive.

NON-DESTRUCTIVE EXCAVATION (NDD)

VACCUM EXCAVATION CAN BE USED TO IDENTIFY:

  • Gas Mains

  • Water Mains

  • Electrical mains

  • Sewer & Storm water pipes

  • Telecommunication lines

Non-destructive excavation (NDD) is a fast, effective and safe method to locate inground live services. NDD reduces risks and costs that are brought about by traditional digging methods. Highly pressurised water is used, along with an air vacuum to complete the hydro excavation process.

 

CCTV & INSPECTION REPORTS

OUR CCTV EQUIPMENT CAN TRACK & RECORD EXACT LOCATIONS & CONDITIONS OF:

  • All sub-surface infrastructure

  • Damaged or blocked pipes

  • The shape & layout of pipes & trenches including junctions & bends

CCTV inspection is used to record footage from inside a drainage system to determine the condition and any blockages. We undertake a range of CCTV operations from dilapidation reports to general pipe condition reports.

 

Using the latest in CCTV equipment, we can inspect pipes from 50mm conduits to large drainage culverts & tunnels.

DILAPIDATION & CONDITION ASSESSMENT

OUR TEAM CAN PROVIDE REPORTS FOR:

  • Internal Sewer and Stormwater

  • Utility Pits and Manholes

  • Heritage Assets

  • Concrete Structures

A dilapidation & condition assessment is a report on the current condition of an asset at a given point in time. It records any existing damage, and the condition of any particular aspects of the asset. Our reports include identification of any defects that may impact the life of the structure and recommendations for any repair requirements.

 

CONCRETE SCANNING

CONCRETE SCANNING CAN BE USED TO IDENTIFY:

  • Post tension cables

  • Steel rebar

  • Steel mesh

  • Voids and cavities

Concrete scanning can detect slab thickness, reinforcement and other anomalies within a concrete slab or wall. Like GPR, the concrete scanner uses a high frequency to detect services in high definition.

Following concrete scanning, we are also able to provide concrete cutting & coring to assist with integration of new services.

Locating Concrete Cutting.jpg

CONCRETE CUTTING

OUR CONCRETE CUTTING SERVICES CAN BE USED FOR:

  • Service Penetrations

  • Manhole Openings

  • Expansion joints

  • Demolition

Concrete cutting utilises diamond tipped blades for optimal performance in cutting through both concrete and masonry surfaces.

 

Utilising both electric and petrol handheld cutting tools allows us to perform concrete cutting within hard to reach and inaccessible locations. For cutting that requires longer lengths, we utilise mounted cutting techniques that allow for straighter and more accurate cutting.

 

CONCRETE CORING

OUR CONCRETE CORING SERVICES CAN BE USED FOR:

  • Dowelling

  • Service Penetrations

  • Manholes

  • Structure Investigations

Diamond concrete coring is a fast and non-vibrating method of penetrating through concrete and masonry structures. Utilising both mounted and handheld drilling equipment we are capable of coring up to 600mm diameter holes in vertical, horizontal, inverted, and diagonal positions.

 

In addition to our drilling equipment, we utilise the technology of recirculating water management systems (RWMS) that collects & reuses water to minimise slurry over runs.
