A utility mapping survey is critical to gaining an understanding of the buried assets within a given area prior to construction or the design phase of a project. It provides the client with peace of mind before breaking ground. There are multiple purposes of undertaking a utility mapping survey but the primary objective is the safety of the operatives on site. By commissioning Subvision Surveys to undertake a utility mapping survey, it provides the client with a good understanding of any buried utilities present within the area of interest. Public utilities are often present within a given site which need protecting or diverting. This is critical in the deign phase of a project.

There is a network of public utility systems running underground all over the country, including telecommunication, gas, electric, sewers, road lighting and pipelines. Since these utilities are hidden beneath the ground, it is essential that you are aware of them before starting any destruction or construction project to avoid causing any damage.
Hitting or cutting one of these services will not only delay a job, but it can be very hazardous and affect the profitability of your job, so it is important to seek help from trained professionals who have the skills needed to locate buried utilities. Rather than relying on old or incomplete record information, our surveyors will use the latest technology to give you real-time data about the area below your site, identifying the depth, route and type of each obstruction. Our utility mapping services are cost effective and offer an overall view, compared to other more intrusive methods.
