GPR utility surveys
Ground Penetrating Radar, or GPR, has been used by utility tracing surveyors for years. However, it is still relatively misunderstood by many potential clients.
Ground Penetrating Radar uses
Primarily, GPR is used to locate non-metallic or non-conductive services such as modern water and gas pipes. Still, it has many other uses, including the location of underground voids, cellars, abandoned storage tanks and even buried walls and foundations.
Mobile GPR surveys for heritage
In addition to their traditional utility workload, in recent years, our surveyors have located numerous ancient foundations and historic dock walls around the UK. This includes sections of Liverpool’s first dock and the remains of the world’s first steam-powered mill in Manchester. Both were subsequently featured on Channel Fours’ ‘Time Team’.
