subsurface utility investigation

State of the art service location

Abletech Underground conducts a thorough, systemised process before construction and design to safely locate underground utility infrastructure. Using state-of-the-art service location equipment, we can interpret and communicate implications from plans to support or inform improvements to planned designs for works.

Topographical data

Abletech accurately position all underground utilities, anomalies and structures located by our accredited team. This allows for easy integration onto topographical survey data. We ensure all relative information such as; depths, utility type, size, material, direction of flow and configuration is presented with our deliverables.

Vacuum excavation

Our vacuum excavation potholing capabilities visually expose the underground utility and Abletech’s photographic pothole service recording provides a detailed report of each potholed utility with all relative information such as: type, material, depths, size and configuration in real time.
