Accurate utility mapping involves the precise location and documentation of underground utilities such as water and sewer lines, gas lines, electrical cables and telecommunication conduits. In urban planning where space is limited, having a comprehensive understanding of what's beneath the surface is crucial.

Risk Mitigation

Accurate utility mapping significantly reduces the risk of unforeseen conflicts and damage during construction projects. By precisely identifying the location of underground utilities, planners can proactively address potential clashes with proposed construction elements. Early detection of conflicts helps avoid costly repairs, project delays, and ensures a safer working environment.

Cost Savings

One of the primary benefits of underground utility mapping is the potential for substantial cost savings. By preventing conflicts in the early planning phase, projects can proceed more efficiently and within budget. This proactive approach minimizes the need for expensive emergency repairs, changes to initial designs, and downtime, contributing to overall project cost-effectiveness.

Blood Hound offers several Geospatial services including underground utility mapping. We leverage state of the art technology, including ground-penetrating radar and electromagnetic induction to designate underground utilities. Spatial data is then collected using GNSS receivers or Robotic total stations. The information is then meticulously compiled into detailed maps, providing a clear understanding of the underground infrastructure.

We work under contract with Engineering and Surveying firms to collect this data using the ASCE 38-22 and 75-22 standards.
