Our underground utility location service enables precise and safe location of buried utility services prior to excavation. Ground-penetrating radar is used from above ground to locate services. Civil and drilling crews then apply vacuum excavation to pothole services accurately and safely with no damage to surrounding buried utility services.
The use of unobtrusive trenching around dense service areas is fast becoming the preferred method as it presents clients with a cost effective solution with minimal risk.
Diverse Group Australia has successfully used vacuum excavation with high pressure water to excavate ground in areas with a high presence of existing services on a number of projects including the Rowley Yard Upgrade Project with Calibre Global for Fortescue Metals Group in late 2011/early 2012, which entailed vacuum locating, trenching as well as pit and pipe installation.
