What is Asset Location?

When you are beginning any excavation project, it is essential to know what is buried in the spot before you start digging. Before digging commences, Futuretek Civil maps out and marks public utilities to ensure their protection. This process is called asset locating.


Asset locating is the practice of using electromagnetic detection technology such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to locate buried objects such as underground utilities, electrical wiring, water piping, gas pipes, internet, and fibre optic cables.

Benefits of Asset Location

Knowing what is buried underneath the ground of a site can help avoid accidents that can cause injury to workers, as well as time-consuming and costly damages to utilities that can cause huge delays to projects.
Asset location can also help you when choosing the best excavation method for your project. Can you use a regular manual excavation method to create your trenches, or do you have buried assets that require a gentler form of excavation such as hydro excavation that requires the hire of a sucker truck to complete?
