As a company Pier (uk) Limited and our operatives have considerable knowledge and experience in the construction, civil engineering and utilities industry.
We have invested in the most recent up to date Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology operated by highly experienced operators from a land surveying and setting out engineering back ground.
The service we provide is for the locating of existing services prior to design and more often prior to excavating works commencing on site.
With the use of the cable locating tools (RD8000) and generator we scan the area to single out the obvious services first which would normally be the metallic material.
We then scan the area with the GPR unit (RDS Detector Duo) to accurately locate the first findings and look for the non-metallic material I.E gas, water, ducting and drainage pipes etc.
All of the identified services will be marked on the ground with marker paint or flags showing their line and depth.
On completion of the GPR survey the information will be recorded by a GPS survey and can be presented to our clients by a CAD drawing. We also provide a full Topographical survey if required.
Other uses for this equipment are for locating:
Underground tanks, manholes, pits, voids, steel reinforcement in concrete and many more.
We also supply the GPR equipment and or the RD 8000 & generator on a non-operated hire with durations to suit your requirements. Training can also be provided.Contact Us
