Digital trial holes are a hugely valuable asset to the route proving and feasibility process. Select Surveys perform hundreds of these annually for various applications.

We perform a utility survey with a combination of electromagnetic and radar technology in conjunction with the utility plans that are obtained either by Select Surveys or our clients. Once the plant is accurately located on site, including depth readings where possible, we then topographically survey the utility marks or sketch the information and transfer to a CAD format with a top view, cross section and photograph of the location. Additionally we can provide 3D models produced from the survey results giving unsurpassed visualization of the subsurface environment.

We can perform a number of these in a day, which provide a financially viable and environmentally friendly alternative to the physical, intrusive traditional trial hole scenario.
