Mapping the Underworld
The detection and mapping of underground services include: pipes, cables, ducts and culverts using a range of survey techniques such as GPR, electro-magnetic location, manhole inspection and CCTV. The necessity for the accurate location of buried services and the intelligent presentation of results and reports has increased dramatically over the last decade. Legislation, Health and Safety, diversions, connectivity and the increasing complexity of utility networks have all driven the requirement.
Severn Partnership has developed its in-house utility detection capabilities in line with demand and now offer bespoke utility detection surveys and consultations to meet any client objective. The Severn Partnership’s ability to offer a complete mapping service of above and below ground infrastructure, will offer clients multiple benefits that include cost savings, greater accuracy and a one point of contact for all your topographic and utility survey needs.
Our Services Include
- comprehensive utility detection surveys
- on site “mark up” surveys
- drainage surveys
- manhole inspection
- compilation of existing utility provider statutory records
- pipeline mapping
- Borehole and trial-pit utility clearance
- topographic survey and laser scanning
Surveys are designed in accordance with The Survey Association (TSA) guidelines.
Severn Partnership believe that the key to a successful utility detection survey is to fully understand the client’s underlying survey objectives. Severn Partnership can devise the most relevant and cost effective solution to fulfil your survey needs.
With our investment in the latest GPR technology, Severn Partnership can now implement a number of additional survey types that include; void detection, underground storage tank mapping, concrete floor scanning, structural surveys and the location of buried foundations/basements.
Severn Partnership is committed to developing new innovative ideas including how utility information is viewed and presented to clients. Utilising The Severn Partnership’s 3D modelling team and the virtual visualisation app, SEEABLE (Severn Partnerships sister company) we hope to offer clients a new and improved way of displaying and visualising utility services information.

Confined Spaces Survey
Confined spaces refer to an area where enclosed conditions and limited access make it dangerous. These surveys require breathing apparatus, a confined spaces kit, specialised training and emergency response teams, any access to these surveys will be restricted. We have experiences surveyors trained to the current safety standards in order to work in these environments. Along with the specialist training, we have all equipment needed for safe working: Intrinsically safe torches, breathing apparatus and gas detection devices.
Potential confined spaces applications:
- Road or Railway Culverts
- Tunnels & shafts
- Building voids & cavities
Examples of relevant experience include:
- Topographical survey and inspection of Longbridge disused tunnels
- Cavities inside the Conwy Rail bridge
- Hornsea Culvert topographical survey
