What is a utility survey?
Utility surveys are an essential part of any design and pre-construction works as they can help to reduce risk, avoid delays, save money, and find potential health and safety issues.
A utility survey is used to locate buried services which could otherwise be disrupted during a construction project. This includes everything from finding out where pipelines and wires are to locating drainage and sewage works.
Do I need a utility survey?
Utility surveys are carried out using a non-intrusive method and can be useful for a whole range of projects. Not having one of these surveys could have serious implications should any utilities be interrupted whilst work is being completed, and you would be liable for any damage caused.
Having a utility survey is an investment and will give you peace of mind that your project can be worked on without the risk of disrupting water, gas, electricity, or telecommunications services.
