Underground Utility Clearance & Scanning

Silitto Enviromental Consulting (SEC) have been utilising edge Ground Penetrating Radar technology for the detection and location of underground utilities and subsurface features since 2012. Subsurface scans are carried out by skilled, tertiary-educated Technicians with years of experience on commercial, private and high-risk industrial sites. Work completed to date includes surveys of over 50 service station sites, mall developments, commercial environments, cemeteries, nuclear power stations and road upgrades within and outside of the borders of South Africa.

  • Underground Utility Detection

  • Underground structures detection and delineation

  • Live or dead electrical cable location / Electromagnetic Field Detection

  • Slab Thickness scanning

  • Void Detection

  • Illegal underground dumping detection

  • Archaeological Dig Site Scanning and Grave Location

  • Railway ballast thickness determination

    Through a combination of the various Ground Penetrating Radar units and the cable locator, it is possible to scan virtually any type of landscape reducing the risk of damaging services during intrusive works saving you both time and money.

    SEC advocates conducting an Underground Utilities Survey prior to any form of intrusive work and with some of our clients this is a mandatory requirement.

    Once the survey is completed, all the data gathered is compiled into a site sketch plan and supporting photolog report or provided in a survey accurate in the format required by the client and depending on requirements.
