PAS 128 Cat C – Site Reconnaissance

Category C Survey is a use of utility record data with site reconnaissance to match utility record with physical utility street furniture as a best fit.

This survey is accompanied by a desktop utility report (survey type D). It will involve a site reconnaissance visit to identify features that may indicate the presence of a service such as; manholes, valves, utility markers, street furniture and historic excavation scars. The deliverable will be in the form of a records overlay onto an existing topographical survey or OS base plan.

Category C Surveys can be utilised for the following and more:

  • Initial reconnaissance of a construction project/job
  • Initial confirmation of records of services obtained for a project/job
  • Last resort/means of survey to establish locations of services
