Ground & Overhead Services
Utility Locating and Concrete Scanning will play an integral role in any project where the work site has a public interface. If Utility Scanning is not performed correctly, the work site may become unsafe or work delayed because of utility service breakdowns repairs etc. We, at D-tech only use appropriately qualified people, whether that be the draftsman designing the Scanning Maps/Reports plans or locating Technician.
In most cases, we will take the responsibility to manage the relevant permit(s) from the appropriate governing body. DBYD Each body has their own permit requirements, and D-tech are experienced in managing all requirements associate with obtaining relevant permits.
Planning is important in every aspect of construction, and D-tech provides a service that starts from the Development Application stage, to make sure that each project gets off the ground efficiently.
All jobs include a detailed report with drawings and/or photos.
Ground Penetrating Radar / Concrete Scanning
D-tech provide Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) services for the following:
Location of utilities (cables / finding conduits)
Construction layer changes
Concrete thickness / voids in concrete
Construction layer thickness
Asphalt delineation and condition
Sink holes below concrete slabs
Ground Penetrating Radar is a non-invasive profiling technique, which provides high resolution images of the sub-surface. Its ability to detect ground disturbance and buried objects make it ideal for location services.
D-tech can undertake such investigations for the following purposes:
Development Sites - to ensure that all existing services are located to avoid any complications to ongoing works ot to new services being installed
Construction Sites - to determine the extent of services within the concrete for old and new buildings prior to core penetrations of redevelopment of any one area.
On Site Data Collection - detailed drawings obtained from site and collated with plans and exisiting service provider infrastructure drawings from relevant authorities.
