      About Underground Survey

      Underground survey maps any assets below the earth’s surface, displaying their position and depth, alongside any other potential hazards that can hinder a planned construction project. Depend on our precise survey data for use in feasibility, design and construction of projects across Derby and UK.

      Utility maps help in ground breaking as they provide the exact positions of the utilities beneath the ground that may be encountered. Through underground surveys, you will avoid digging and damaging subsurface utilities that can harm your workforce and the public. Our Derby’s underground survey reduces your project planning time, minimise risk and provide confidence before commencing excavation works as you expect no surprise utilities. our professional team is fully compliant with health and safety regulations and BSI standards – PAS 128 surveys.

      CCTV Drainage Surveys

      Our specialised underground utility mapping incorporates CCTV drain surveys as an important component of our survey services to help showcase any defects, blockages, illegal connections and connections between access points, and show the exact location of the drainage system between entry points and manholes.

      Utility Survey and Utility Mapping

      Derby Measured Survey provides exhaustive subsurface utility mapping that is tailored to the industry specifications, such as PAS 128, delivering precise solutions according to your requirement and specifications.

      Road (Mobile) Mapping

      Councils, transport agencies and civil engineering companies depend on our road mapping services using drone technology to accurately survey and inspect road projects, oil and gas pipelines, railway lines, transmission lines and linear right of way corridors.

      Concrete Scanning

      Our concrete scanning technology leverages on cutting-edge ferro-scan, GPR scanning and ultrasound equipment to survey your structures, providing details of the underground elements, dimensions, and any other anomalies. Rely on our concrete scanning to inform your construction process, reduce stress among workers, eliminate downtime, and improve productivity.

      GPR Surveys

      GPR surveys form an important part of our utility mapping, providing an underground imagery of your construction site through non-intrusive mapping techniques. Our utility surveyors use the GPR technology alongside Total Stations and GPS devices to perform reliable underground surveys across Derby.

      CAD and BIM Modelling

      A comprehensive scan coverage of your site, through modelling technology, enables our specialists to create a 3D point cloud using advanced software and customised automated extraction techniques for retrieving the needed data.

      BIM Underground Services

      Derby Measured Survey provides underground services data within a BIM environment, and integrates building information, topographical information as well as subsurface utility information in a comprehensive Revit model.

      Site Investigations

      Site investigation enables our surveyors to collect information, assess data, and report potential hazards underground on a construction site.

        • Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR)

      GPR directs an electromagnetic pulse into the ground, collecting data as reflected from subsurface utilities.

        • Electro-Magnetic Locator

      Electro-Magnetic Locators, such as Leica DD series, precisely detect any underground power cable, as well as provide an accurate cable location.

        • Seismic Surveys

      The use of geophones positioned at strategic patterns showcase rock properties several miles under the ground.

        • Registered Earthworks Supervisor (RES) Scheme

      The RES scheme helps site supervisors adhere to cable/gas pipe damage prevention measures.
