We locate the presence or absence of underground services on sites using ground probing radar (GPR) and electromagnetic equipment.
Anybody wishing to dig, should by law (HSE regulations), know what services are located below, before breaking ground. Powers underground utilities detection surveys will provide you with comprehensive services locations to the required PAS 128 British Standard. They show the position, type and depth of live, abandoned or redundant service networks based on PAS 128 Quality Levels agreed in advance.
Quality Assured PAS 128 Surveys
PAS 128 is a best practice specification in the gathering of underground services data, transformed into detailed drawings or models that show the location of services underground. Underground service locations can be identified to any of the PAS 128 Quality Levels based on survey type, location accuracy, inclusion of post-processing and level of supporting data. We can work with you to determine which Quality Level can be achieved in advance of the site survey.
PAS 128 Quality Levels D, C, B, A:
|Survey Level||Survey Type||Relative Location Accuracy||Relative Cost|
|D||Desktop Utility Records Search||Lowest||Lowest|
|C||Site Reconnaissance||Medium Low||Medium|
Powers provided us with comprehensive and accurate topographical surveys, on what was an extremely complex area. The information contained in these surveys, including the elevations details, all help us understand the area – and how it can be successfully transformed for future generations – as part of the regeneration project.
