Here’s a bit more information about our underground services:

EMF Utility Locating

EMF (Electromagnetic Field) Locating is an effective way of locating underground infrastructure. When we carry out EMF utility locating a radio frequency is induced onto a conductor, then traced by the receiver. Our accredited locators provide a safe and cost-effective solution that helps to protect your underground infrastructure and prevent damage from digging and construction.

Push Camera with recordable footage

All technicians here at LADS carry a 60m Push Camera. With the ability to live record, this makes our CCTV camera inspections a great way to locate and inspect underground infrastructure quickly and efficiently.

GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) and Concrete Scanning

Here at LADS, we use the IDS Opera Duo, which is one of the best ground penetrating radar products on the market. Ground Penetrating Radar or GPR for short is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to form an image of what’s beneath the grounds surface, whether that’s buried tanks, cabling or even non-metallic services such as pipes and drainage ways.

We can also use GPR for concrete scanning, whether you’re conducting an investigation into the quality of an existing concrete surface or you’re clearing slabs for proposed core holes, GPR is the most effective way to safely and accurately penetrate the surfaces. Our GSSI Structure Scan Mini HR has the ability to scan in both 2D and 3D modes.
