Underground Services & Utility mapping

Rely on our professional underground surveys for feasibility, design, and construction of projects across Leicester and UK. Our surveyors will map any assets below the earth’s surface, displaying their position and depth, and any other potential hazards that can hinder a planned construction project.
Utility maps from these surveys are comprehensive, displaying the exact positions of the utilities beneath the ground that may be encountered. Therefore, they are crucial in ground breaking as well as in avoiding digging and damaging subsurface utilities that can harm workforce and the public. Our specialised Leicester’s underground survey reduces your project planning time, minimises risk and provides confidence before beginning excavation works since no surprise utilities are expected. At Leicester Measured Survey, our professional team fully complies with health and safety regulations as well as the BSI standards – PAS 128 surveys.

    Here are the different types of Underground Survey Services Underground Survey Services we offer:

    Utility Survey and Utility Mapping

    Leicester Measured Survey provides exhaustive subsurface utility mapping that complies with the industry specifications, such as PAS 128. We deliver precise and safe utility mapping solutions to our clients as requested.

    CCTV Drainage Surveys

    Our specialised underground utility mapping entails CCTV drain surveys to clearly showcase any defects, blockages, illegal connections and connections between access points; and to show the exact location of the drainage system between entry points and manholes.

    GPR Surveys

    Using GPR technology, we will provide an underground imagery of your construction site through non-intrusive mapping techniques. The technology is leveraged together with Total Stations and GPS devices to perform reliable underground surveys across Leicester and the UK.

    Concrete Scanning

    Concrete scanning technology uses cutting-edge ferro-scan, GPR scanning and ultrasound equipment to map your structures and provide details of the underground elements, dimensions, and anomalies, if any. Our concrete scanning will help inform your construction process, reduce stress among workers, eliminate downtime, as well as improve productivity.

    Site Investigations

    Through site investigation, our surveyors will gather information, assess data, and present any potential hazards that may occur underground on a construction site.

    BIM Underground Services

    Leicester Measured Survey provides underground service data within a BIM environment, and integrates building information, topographical information and subsurface utility information in a comprehensive Revit model.

    Road (Mobile) Mapping

    Councils, transport agencies and civil engineering companies rely on our road (mobile) mapping services that uses drone technology to accurately survey road projects, oil and gas pipelines, railway lines, transmission lines as well as linear right of way corridors.

    CAD and BIM Modelling

    Through modelling technology, comprehensive scan coverage of your site helps our survey specialists to create a 3D point cloud using advanced software and customised automated extraction techniques to retrieve the required data.

    Geophysical Survey

    Leicester’s geophysical surveys utilise ground-based physical sensing techniques to produce a detailed map of a building/construction site. The method used is non-invasive, which is crucial for surveying sensitive environments. Geophysical surveys may take any of the following forms:

    Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR)

    GPR directs an electromagnetic pulse into the ground and collects data reflected from subsurface utilities.

    Seismic Surveys

    The survey uses geophones strategically positioned at convenient patterns, displaying rock properties several miles below the ground.

    Electro-Magnetic Locator

    Electro-Magnetic Locators, including Leica DD series, precisely and accurately detect any underground power cable as well as its location below the ground.

    Registered Earthworks Supervisor (RES) Scheme

    The RES scheme is crucial for site supervisors in adhering to cable/gas pipe damage prevention measures.

    What results will you receive?

    Leicester Measured Survey company assures its clients of accurate utility mapping deliverables in various formats, such as:

    • 3D utility survey data capture and modelling
    • 2D, 3D and 3D Modelled CAD
    • GIS Model
    • BIM Model
    • MEP BIM Model

    When do you need an underground survey?

    Before commencing any construction project on a site, renovation on a building, addition, or modification works on a building or structure, it is crucial to begin with an underground survey to determine the location of all utility lines.

    What Methods and Equipment do we use for underground surveying?

    Our specialist team of surveyors employ various techniques and equipment in underground surveying as required by the nature of a site. Here are some of the techniques and equipment used:

    • GPR: 2D and 3D technology. GPR survey uses towing and pushing systems with a broad range of frequencies.
    • 3D Laser scanners. Leicester Measured Survey uses the latest laser scanning technology from leading brands, such as Leica and Faro
    • EML (Electro-Magnetic Locators)
    • Mobile Mapping
    • Total Stations
    • Software for drawings, modelling and processing of the dat
    • Our own applications.

    Our Interior Design Studio have used Leicester measured survey twice, and they do not disappoint! Not only the team was very professional and friendly on site, we were also extremely pleased by the 3D model and the speed of delivery. On both occasions, we were very impressed and will continue working with them in the future!
