Locating Pipes and Cables

Underground Utility Mapping Improving The Construction Industry

 In today’s modern construction industry, underground utility mapping is certainly a must. You might not be aware of it, but there are hundreds of thousands of kilometers of pipelines that are running underneath the city streets and even in suburban neighborhoods. And, these pipes can carry either water, gas, sewage, they can even have electric cables threaded through them. If you start a construction project without checking for these lines first, then you will run into some serious problems.

It is required by law that you consult with a utility map from the city government if you are planning on doing any kind of major construction work, from building a small house to a high-rise building. The problem with these maps is that they are not updated that frequently; there may have been a couple more pipelines installed in a certain area, but they would not usually reflect on the official utility maps. And, as most people in the construction business know, if you run into these pipes and damage them in any way, you will waste a lot of time and resources just to get it fixed.

Not only will you spend a lot of your limited time and money repairing the damage caused by your digging machines, you also need to reevaluate the plans that you have on hand; and this will certainly be a huge setback to your timetable, it may even cause you to scrap the project just so you do not lose any more money.

If you want to avoid these kinds of problems, then besides consulting with the map you got from city hall, you should also hire utility mapping experts to conduct a survey on the job site. These professionals use sophisticated locating technologies that will allow them to sneak a peak inside the earth to find out if there are any utility lines that will get in the way of the excavation.

Professional locating services employ different kinds of gadgets while working. They have ground penetrating radar systems, acoustic detectors, and other imaging devices that can create a clear picture of what lies underneath your feet. Modern underground utility mapping is so accurate that not only will you learn where the pipes lie, you can also find out how deep they were buried; you essentially get a 3D rendering of the pipelines that are underground.

You can save a lot of time and avoid stress and headaches just by consulting with expert utility mapping services first and not just relying on maps. With the help of these experts, your crew can go ahead with their jobs without having to worry about digging into important pipelines and causing excessive damage.
