Ground Penetrating Radar

GPR utility surveys

Ground Penetrating Radar, or GPR, has been in use by utilities tracing surveyors for some years now but 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, but it has a multitude of 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 utilities workload, in recent years, our surveyors have located numerous ancient foundations and historic dock walls around the UK including sections of Liverpool's first dock and the remains of the worlds first steam powered mill in Manchester; both subsequently featured on Channel Fours' ‘Time Team’.
