At TerraScan, we have a range of equipment to find everything that may be hidden underground. From pipes and cables to metallic and non-metallic materials to storage tanks and vault detection, we can find what you can’t see.
We also have the ability to scan concrete, vacuum excavation, locate faulty cables and leaks, and offer survey and mapping services.
At TerraScan, we send you the data collected for use in field reports and other earthwork documentation including Dial Before you Dig plans. Precise and up-to-date information is mandatory to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
UNDERGROUND SERVICE LOCATION
Knowing the location of an underground pipe is not something you can usually find on a map. In some cases, a pipe may not be known about at all.
It’s important to know where pipes and cables are on your property, especially if you are considering building, or doing earthworks.
At TerraScan, we use Electromagnetic Field technology when locating underground cables and pipes. The technology allows us to scan an area without little to no disturbing of the ground.
GROUND PENETRATING RADAR
Buried utility infrastructure can be problem when undertaking earthworks. At TerraScan we use Ground Penetrating Radar which can locate both metallic and non-metallic items that may be underground. The GPR is an efficient way to locate these items, saving you time and money.
We can use Ground Penetrating Radar to find everything from underground storage tanks to utility detection to lost cables and valves.
Our TerraScan concrete scanning equipment allows us to safely inspect concrete slabs and beams. We can scan for cables, high tension cables, electrical conduits and other structural steel.
You should always ask for a concrete scan before conducting works on concrete structures to find hidden materials and avoid significant damage.
Vacuum excavation uses the power of high-pressure water jets to dig through the ground without damaging underground pipes, cables and other infrastructure.
Our TerraScan hydro jets excavate the ground with more precision than you’d find from a mechanical excavator. If you’re looking for safe and efficient earthworks, then we recommend our vacuum excavation service.
CABLE FAULT LOCATIONS
Some cables can be buried up to three meters underground. Our TerraScan cable fault locator can efficiently find the cable or cable system and detect the location of the fault.
If a cable is within a conduit, it can be a difficult to locate, however we always give it a go to see if it’s possible.
Have you noticed a jump in your water bill? Or maybe the flow and water pressure isn’t as strong. There may be a water leak on your property, and which can be an expensive problem.
At TerraScan, we have specific water leak equipment to efficiently locate the damaged water pipes at the source. We can precisely detect leaks under lawns and driveways.
Sometimes, a simple mud map is all you need to document where the hidden materials are in our backyard, however if you require surveying or complex mapping of your site, we can arrange for this to happen.
We have a Licenced Traffic Control Operator, who can provide signage and safer traffic conditions for your works. At TerraScan, we can also provide Stop Start traffic control if requested.
