SolidPoint is dedicated to providing fully detailed PAS 128 compliant utility surveys. 

Locating services on your site using the best equipment

A utility survey provides information on buried services on your site. They are essential because they help prevent any hits on utilities when performing excavation on site or help to identify where services run to avoid interference when planning.

These surveys are completed using the latest Electromagnetic Locators (EML), Ground Penetrating Rader Units (GPR) and lifting inspection covers. 

We provide existing drawings to show where metal pipes, plastic pipes, electricity cables, drainage systems and telecommunications run as well as do borehole clearances and CCTV pipe inspections.

Efficient delivery: Due to using latest equipment available we can quickly collect and mark out information on site to be ready for post processing to be then delivered electronically.

Budget friendly: Due to the increased levels of accuracy, there is often little need for correction or re-working. Saving you both time and money.

High Accuracy: We make sure that our surveys are PAS 128 compliant and the checks that the standards require are performed to ensure we get results as accurate as possible.

Why an accurate survey is important

Accuracy is paramount in surveying. Accurate data means less mistakes and delays which means that costs are minimised.

If you want to add to your land and are worried about services running through it, then a utility survey is essential. Without knowing what utilities are under the site most contractors will not undertake a job because they are worried about hitting a vital utility/service which can be very costly to replace if damaged. A Utility survey will be able to indicate where services run and be able to avoid them, which means avoiding large delays and costs.

Why should SolidPoint survey your site?

We have qualified surveyors that work and collect data to the British standard PAS 128. This means that your land/area will be surveyed according to tried and tested techniques to ensure that the results are as accurate as possible.

We are flexible and can work to a custom specification provided by you, or we can create one based on your project requirements so that costs suit you and every detail you require is covered to the best of our ability.

Our surveyors understand how to use the kit and where services may be located, which further minimises the chance of not finding a service.
