Utility Survey for Upcoming Event

Our recently onboarded Utility Surveyor, Karl Hodgson, embarked on a memorable assignment set amidst the enchanting ambiance of Fountains Abbey in Ripon. Tasked by the Trust overseeing a stakeholders’ event, Subscan UDS was called upon to conduct due diligence for the strategic placement of a marquee within an open field, ensuring a seamless experience for all attendees during the festivities.

At Subscan UDS, we harness the power of cutting-edge technology such as the MALA Easy Locator Core utility locating system to conduct comprehensive scans of areas using advanced Ground Penetrating Radar technology. This allows us to accurately detect any underground services present. Once identified, we meticulously mark these services with coloured flags, ensuring easy recognition and effective management during subsequent operations.

We extend our warmest wishes to Fountains Abbey for the success of their upcoming event! It was truly an honour for us to play a role in ensuring the safety and success of their gathering, especially amidst the serene and picturesque surroundings of the abbey.

We extend a special appreciation to our versatile Business Development Manager, Nicky Allen, for capturing the photographs during her site visit. Your dedication and contributions are highly valued, and we’re grateful for your efforts in documenting our projects.

Our surveys help workers identify potential buried obstacles, minimising costly delays and unexpected challenges.

It’s a legal requirement to be aware of what lies beneath the surface before digging. Striking a gas main can be extremely costly and dangerous. At Subscan UDS, we use advanced detection techniques, including Electromagnetic Detection, signal-induced threading, and Ground Penetrating Radar, to accurately locate utilities.
