As you make plans to develop a site, it is important to be aware of any underground utilities on the property. Being conscious of these services, including electricity, gas, fibre optic cables etc. enables you to make cost-effective and loss-reducing construction project plans.

Underground Utility Surveys Are Vital

Utilities companies are required to provide maps of their underground utility, yet they are often not detailed enough. This is why our utility mapping survey is so important, to allow construction but also protect public utilities.

Indigo Surveys Ltd has extensive experience in a range of top-quality surveys including underground utility detection. We employ cutting-edge technologies and innovative procedures to detect, trace and map any information regarding utilities at your site.

Our Indigo Surveys specialists are operational from Chester, London and Birmingham. We administer quality underground utility survey services from our Chester office, allowing us to reach towns and cities throughout the UK swiftly. If you are planning to develop a site and want to avoid delay, contact us for tailored services designed to suit your needs.

What is a Utility Survey?

Utility surveys involve:

  • detecting,
  • identifying,
  • and tracing buried utilities at a site.

At Indigo Surveys, we get a topographical surveyor to utilise a supplied land survey plan, if it is available when offering underground utility surveys. These steps form a base layer, which enables us to survey and map underground utility services and existing utilities atop.

To dramatically increase the level of accuracy and volume of utilities to be traced, we employ electromagnetic and Ground Penetrating Radar systemsas well as radio frequency location technology by tracing signals emitted by active objects beneath the ground.

Our specialist surveyors at Indigo Surveys, also offer an alternative whereby we integrate utility record search data for full utility mapping surveys, going as far as to identify both public utility companies and private utility owners that own the underground utility. These we present using AutoCAD in detailed and accurate .dwg and .pdf formats for all underground utility detection needs.

Why Do You Need An Underground Utility Survey?

Development projects without utility surveys are not advisable. It is recommended that you get a quality underground utility survey that will identify any buried services on a site. Development project planning time can be minimised through this procedure, with all the proper underground services health and safety regulations adhered to.

With utility mapping surveys, such procedures are reduced, since the survey provides the client with an overall view of the site instead. You can reach us at Indigo Surveys for a free fixed-cost quotation that will accurately locate underground utilities on your site.

“We have retained Indigo Surveys to undertake measured surveys and tree services for various projects over the last 5 years and have always found the price, quality and customer service to be excellent. Andrew Turnbull is exceptionally helpful, easy to contact and always responds to queries in a timely manner.”

Claire Williams
Project Manager

“I have worked with Indigo on many school projects. Many ran at the same time and had very short pre-construction programmes. Indigo were proactive and able to meet the challenging programmes, which enabled us to meet all submission dates for approval. We were kept aware of all ecology/arboricultural issues from the outset.”

Jane Shaw
Senior Design Manager

“Indigo’s role in the Project Team was crucial in obtaining Planning Permission on a complex and challenging site. Their expert arboricultural knowledge resulted in successful negotiations with the Planning Authority and helped make the project feasible while also ensuring that it preserved the character of the site.”

Graeme Mill
Project Architect

“We used Andy at Indigo Surveys for a difficult planning scheme in Wimbledon Village and found his knowledge and strategy in dealing with the various issues thrown up very impressive and the added footprint that this gave the client on the scheme was invaluable. We continue to use Indigo Surveys Ltd for Arboricultural Consultancy services, and would be very happy to recommend them.”
