Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
Ground penetrating radar is utilised to locate non-conductive underground services and infrastructure such as PVC, poly, concrete and asbestos pipes and conduits that are inaccessible via other means. GPR technology uses high-frequency radio waves to detect reflected signals from subsurface services and structures.
Utility ID use GPR in conjunction with electronic service locating to find a wider range of materials and to identify changes in geology, and underground voids and cracks.
Duty Of Care
We are fully qualified underground service locators being DBYD certified and Telstra and Optus accredited. This guarantees you are doing everything to meet your duty of care obligations to minimise any chance of damaging services. All our work is carried out in accordance with AS5488-2013 ‘Classification of Subsurface Utility Information’ providing you assurance of a safe, reliable, and quality service.
Tailored to Your Assets
Every site is unique and has different complexities and that is why we tailor our approach to suit your project whilst keeping in line with the utility owner’s duty of care requirements.
Although GPR technology is constantly evolving, it is currently limited by factors like highly conductive soils, dense clays and soils that are salt contaminated.
Nonetheless, GPR is still the largest advancement in recent times for the location of underground buried services and infrastructure, and is the only real option for locating pipes, conduits and ducts that are made of non-conductive materials.
Combine our GPR and electronic service locating with our in-house Vacuum Excavation service to guarantee complete protection of all underground utilities and risk minimisation on your next project. Call 0401 202 515 today to get a quote.
Why Use Ground Penetrating Radar?
Utility locating without having to disrupt the surface. GPR is safe to use on a variety of surfaces and utility lines.
Locating tricky utilities
GPR is excellent at locating utilities that don’t respond well to conventional service locating techniques. If the ground conditions are right, GPR can be your only non-invasive solution to locating underground services.
Ground penetrating radar can be deployed and used onsite quickly, requiring minimal set up and no clean-ups. This facilitates efficient decision making and faster project completion with less downtime.
GPR provides real-time data and imaging of underground utilities, giving you instant feedback and better monitoring of your site. This is particularly useful for exploratory projects or survey and mapping your underground services.
