      What is an Underground Survey?

      Underground surveying maps and determines all the services occurring below the surface of the earth. Coventry Measured Survey conducts specialised underground utility surveys in line with the health and safety regulations and BSI standards – PAS 128 surveys.

      Using underground utility survey data reduces project planning time, and lowers the risks of costly adjustments made to the design or mistakes further down the construction line.

      Detailed and accurate utility survey maps enable contractors to work with a high level of confidence before and during excavation. Contractors will also provide the necessary protection to their workforce according to health and safety regulations.

      Our professional underground survey maps the location and depth of objects such as cables, pipes and tunnels. Rely on our efficient underground survey to locate subsidence, or the movement of the earth’s surface.

      Various types of Underground Survey Services

      Utility Survey and Utility Mapping

      Our experienced and professional surveyors guarantee reliable subsurface utility mapping, providing solutions for a wide range of clients. Our utility surveys are tailored to the industry specifications, including PAS 128.

      CCTV Drainage Surveys

      CCTV drainage surveys form a crucial component of our specialised underground surveys. They are designed to check any detailing defects, illegal connections, blockages and connections between access points, as well as the exact location of the drainage system between entry points and manholes.

      CAD and BIM Modelling

      Coventry Measured Survey Company boasts of an experienced modelling specialist team that conducts in-depth scan coverage of a construction site, and generates a 3D point cloud with the help of the latest software.

      Road (Mobile) Mapping

      We use drones for our mobile mapping to precisely survey road projects, gas and oil pipelines, transmission lines, railway lines, as well as linear right of way corridors.

      GPR Surveys

      Utility mapping depends on GPR surveys for non-intrusive scanning to provide an underground imagery of your construction site. A combination of GPR technology, total stations and GPS devices delivers accurate underground surveys.

      BIM Underground Services

      Our specialist team of surveyors provide data on underground services within a BIM environment, thus, enabling the integration of building information, topographical information and underground utilities information in an all-inclusive Revit model.

      Concrete Scanning

      We employ modern concrete scanning technology that uses cutting-edge ferro-scan, GPR scanning and ultrasound equipment to gather reliable information from underground elements, structures, dimensions, and many more.

      Site Investigations

      Through site investigation, our survey team will be able to gather information, assess data, as well as report potential hazards below a construction site.

      Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR)

        • Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR)

      A GPR sends electromagnetic pulses into the ground, capturing information from the underground utilities through reflections.

        • Seismic Surveys

      Geophones placed at strategic patterns showcase rock properties several miles below the ground.

        • Registered Earthworks Supervisor (RES) Scheme

      The RES scheme enhances the competence of site supervisors, enabling adherence to cable/gas pipe damage prevention protocols.

        • Electro-Magnetic Locator

      EML (Leica DD series) will detect the location of any underground power cable.
