Underground Service Location
It is extremely important to know the exact position of all services (power, gas, water, sewage, phone, and data) prior to excavation to avoid damages. We are fully equipped with our own device and trained in Underground Service Location.
BEFORE YOU START DIGGING, YOU MUST KNOW THE LOCATION OF THE UNDERGROUND CABLES AND OTHER SERVICES NEAR YOU.
Does your project involve digging, site works or construction? Do you know where your services are located? Underground services—such as electrical, telecommunication and NBN cables, water and sewage pipes, gas pipes and fuel lines—are located everywhere. It is vital that before commencing excavation work you know the exact whereabouts of the nearby underground services.
AVOID DAMAGING CRITICAL UNDERGROUND SERVICES
Disrupting or damaging underground services could land you in hot water. You could be liable to pay for repair and insurance costs, leaving you out of pocket. Not to mention the delay it could put on your work schedule and the inconvenience of creating a new plan.
In Western Australia you are required by law that you use an accredited service locator to mark underground utilities before you start your excavation project. At DJL Electrical we provide quality, underground utility location services to Albany, Denmark, Mt Barker, and the Great Southern. We will come out to your site and locate and mark the underground services near you to help minimize the risk to your project disrupting or damaging these services.
GROUND PENETRATING RADAR (GPR) IN ALBANY
When you need to find with pinpoint accuracy underground services that are unable to traditionally be found with electromagnetic frequency, then you need our Ground Penetrating Radar to get the job done.
LMX200 GPR UNIT
We have the highly capable LMX200 unit, that is able to locate the following underground services:
- PVC, cement, and asbestos pipes
- Underground electrical cables
- Concrete storm water and sewer/septic systems
- Underground storage tanks
- Concrete pads, foundation walls, and other subsurface structures
If you need to comply with local or state government requirements for your project or development, then we can easily help you map and find underground services with our specialised Ground Penetrating Radar unit. We have a dedicated operator for this task, to ensure that we locate every underground structure in the vicinity.
Please contact us today to discuss your GPR requirements in and around Albany and the Great Southern.
ELECTROMAGNETIC FREQUENCY (EMF) LOCATING
We use EMF techniques to locate metallic or conductive materials underground. Many of our sewerage, water and gas pipes are made of conductive materials as well as our electrical cables so they are able to be located by our RADIODETECTION C.A.T4+ locator.
We then mark these locations to ensure that everyone on your project knows where they are. This reduces the risk of inadvertent damage to cables, pipes and other services.
At DJL Electrical, we understand the level of risk that construction work poses to underground services and utilities. Alternatively, we also understand the level of risk that unidentified and unmarked utilities pose to construction work.
