Sydney’s Best Utility Locating and Utility Mapping


When it comes to digging, you don’t want to take any chances. 

Using a professional and certified utility locator is a great way to avoid accidental strikes on underground services and utilities. 

Unfortunately, when most companies find out that “underground utilities exist,” they either assume it isn’t their problem.

Until it’s too late that is.

One of the reasons utility locators are vital is because they help you avoid damaging underground services that you wouldn’t have known otherwise without the expertise of professional locating equipment and years of experience in the field.

For example, let’s say you are doing a road widening project and need to excavate the ground for some civil and drainage works.

If you hadn’t got someone in to do the utility locating first, then you could possibly be digging blind directly over some electrical, gas, water, or sewer lines in the process. 

This is a big deal not only because you are one bucket away from ripping out some underground services that do not only cost a lot of money to repair but can also cost you a lot of time in repairs and downtime for the team. 

You’re going to be held responsible for it all. 

Using Before You Dig certified utility locators like Geoscope Utility Detection Services is a great investment.

Here are five reasons why you should be using Geoscope:

We know what it’s like to be digging in the wrong place.

Digging isn’t easy. Depending on where you are digging in Sydney whether it’s in the North Sydney suburbs such as Cammeray or Artarmon where you come across large rock and sandstone areas or you’re digging out in the west of Sydney in Parramatta to Penrith where you encounter thick, moist clay, there are always challenges to every excavation job you attend.

When it comes to digging around underground services, the challenges are even more demanding when you need to contend with soil conditions and depths of underground utilities.

That’s why when you have underground services located, you want them to be as accurate as possible so you can make the best decision for your project.

You could be 50 cm away, or 5 m away. If you are off the mark, then you are off the mark. 

You need a team that is ready to work on your projects, knows your industry and has trained and experienced professionals who can help you out and put you directly above the underground service you’re planning to dig around.

Geoscope has got the tools and expertise you need to get right where you want to be.

Who loves re-work and doing things for free?

Who loves going back to the site and fixing something twice, or even three times and not getting paid for the pleasure?

I highly doubt anyone would.

One of the values that we, as a team, use, whenever we work with our clients, is that we do it right the first time. 

Not only because it saves the time and energy that comes from re-work, but all the added costs involved that come from the return to work. 

That’s the wages, the fuel, the time on the phone and sending emails, the contractors involved, and organising teams to be at different locations. All this and more is because of work that was not done right the first time.

We know you wouldn’t want to go through all this mess. We will not let your projects suffer due to poor quality or lack of expertise. We have been there ourselves and understand how frustrating it can be when things don’t go according to plan.

In addition to saving time and money, we believe that if we do things right the first time, then we will leave our clients happy and satisfied with our service.
