Developments, feasibility studies and most on site works require some sort of utility survey to establish the location of assets such as pipes and cables. The first step in utility location is to write to the utility affected by your project and request a plan of their apparatus. If your company follows:
You could spend several weeks writing many individual letters to various utilities chasing up payments to these utilities and waiting on potential missing plans. This is time-consuming, frustrating and not a good use of your time. Groundwise offers a Utility Search service, which gives you the opportunity of ordering all your utility search information from your desktop. Groundwise has created a large database containing information from utilities that assist us in obtaining a Utility report. By reducing the need to contact utilities unnecessarily we can provide you with a professional streamlined service.
The service works by you creating an account with a username and a login. You can call up a detailed map of your site using the built in comprehensive UK mapping. By using the mapping tools you can highlight the area on which you require a search to be undertaken.
You will then have an opportunity to select the various utilities that you require. Not all of our clients require all utility data and therefore there are simple tick boxes to add or take away the utilities you require. Once you have selected the information you require our fee will be provided and you may save or continue with the order.
Here at Groundwise we nurture professional relationships with all major utility providers, this enables us to provide our clients with a prompt and efficient Utility Search service.
