Utility Mapping

Utility Surveying is the process of identifying and labelling public utility mains that are underground. Utility Surveying accounts for lines for telecommunication, electricity distribution, natural gas, cable television, fiber optics, traffic lights, street lights, storm drains, water mains, and waste water pipes. In some locations, major oil and gas pipelines, national defense communication lines, mass transit, rail and road tunnels. Since different types of underground utilities are made of different materials, different detection and location methods have to be used. We also use state-of-the-art underground cable locators and GPR that allow us to efficiently induce, detect and trace underground utilities before any subsurface work can be carried out. These are designed to give you unprecedented access to the structure or site, as well as superior protection for safe planning and excavation.

You can trust our team at MESE to give you the confidence to plan, design and manage with our utility detection capabilities and fleet of equipment. We use the utility mapping to Validate existing utility locations and data from existing asset owner plans and search for unknown utilities, using a range of geophysical techniques.

Our underground utility mapping solutions can add value to your project by:

  • Mitigating potential conflicts in design to avoid costly delays.
  • Conduct conflict analysis of utilities clashing with design.
