“We can reduce the uncertainty associated with underground services by offering experienced, competent and accredited locating staff”
Determining the location, depth and direction of these assets is imperative before construction or maintenance commences. Hagstrom can offer pro-active solutions to meet your safety requirements and can offer underground utility services such as service location clearance for electricity, gas, phone, optic fibre, sewer and water in conjunction with our drilling program or as a stand-alone service to minimise cost and project risk.
Hagstrom has invested in the latest Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) systems and Electromagnetic Line Locators. These systems can be used in tandem to provide accurate location giving 3D perspective. Ground Penetrating Radar is an advanced technology which uses short pulses of electromagnetic energy to generate underground imagery. These mechanisms provide a safe, non-disruptive method of capturing subsurface data whilst being highly accurate and cost effective.
As part of our services, Hagstrom can offer specialised trailer mounted Vacuum units also referred to as, vacuum truck excavation, potholing and Non-Destructive Digging (NDD) which allows us to provide non-destructive means of utility locating by using this method to excavate the soil and material without damaging the underground services providing our clients with a safe and non-destructive, safe mode of excavation to expose underground assets.
Applications for our unit’s include excavating for:
Vacuum excavation provides many benefits over traditional methods including greater safety for work personnel and less risk of damaging the surrounding infrastructure.
Our experienced and accredited operators are trained to perform location and excavation services to the highest standards on small and large scale worksites and can provide remedial works to minimise any environmental impact.
“What a time and resource saver, having the driller scan for utilities, only one company for inductions and quotes, fantastic!”
