Vacuum excavation reduces the risks when exposing or digging around utilities. There are two methods of doing this: either by water or air.
Hydro excavation trucks are also used for underground utilities locating, which involves identifying the location of buried utilities such as water, gas, and power lines. This is an essential process for construction projects, as it helps to prevent accidental damage to underground utilities during excavation work.
The process of underground utilities locating with a hydro excavation truck involves using the high-pressure water jetting system to create a small hole or trench in the ground above the suspected location of the utility. The vacuum system then sucks up the resulting slurry, allowing the operator to visually inspect the hole or trench and identify the location and depth of the buried utility.
Service Locating offers advanced electromagnetic line locating technology to assist with cable locating for excavation work, site planning, and safe digging on residential properties.
It is crucial to locate cables before any excavation work as digging into cables, especially power cables, can result in fatalities and costly repairs.
SEQ Vacuum Excations provides utility cable locating services to a wide range of clients, including construction engineers, architects, surveyors, contractors, government departments, developers, and homeowners.
In the past, locating underground cables was based on utility company records which were often outdated and limited in accuracy. However, with the increase in renovations and data cables, traditional methods were no longer sufficient. With our advanced technology, a three-dimensional plan can be provided, showing all buried cables with over 97% accuracy, without the need for invasive digging.
Hydro vacuum excavation with a Vac truck highly reduces the possibility of harming or interfering with crucial underground utilities in Brisbane as opposed to conventional mechanical excavation using bobcats, backhoes, or bulldozers. Underground Utilities damage can happen for a variety of causes, such as operator error, incorrect or missing service location markings, the discovery of additional lines beneath a single service, and occasionally, the blatant disregard for standard construction practices.
In order to securely excavate, non-destructive digging (NDD), non-evasive, economical, and accurate processes are used. Vacuum hydro excavation is now frequently much more cost-effective for completing your excavation needs while protecting underground services. We provide a full range of expert hydro excavation and Vac truck services across the Gold Coast
We use several different methods to locate underground services, but the most common and effective is electromagnetic radio waves. This method involves a transmitter and receiver to send and pick up signals through pipes and cables.
Yes, it is essential to locate underground utilities before excavation to avoid damaging pipes and cables, which can be costly and dangerous.
Yes, we can locate your house connections using electronic locating equipment.
Yes, we can locate optic fibre cables using specific electronic locating equipment designed for non-metallic lines.
Electronic underground locations are highly accurate, but accuracy depends on several factors, including the equipment used, the depth of the service, and the composition of the surrounding soil.
Electronic locators can detect pipes and cables up to 6 meters deep, depending on the soil type and composition.
Underground service locators are professionals who use specialised equipment to locate underground utilities, pipes and cables.
We use various marking methods, such as paint, flags, or stakes, to identify underground services on-site.
Construction companies, utility providers, and homeowners are some of the most common clients who use underground service locators.
The Gold Coast is a coastal city and a region in the state of Queensland, Australia, approximately 66 kilometres (41 mi) south-southeast of the centre of the state capital Brisbane. With a population over 600,000, the Gold Coast is the sixth-largest city in Australia, the nation's largest non-capital city, and Queensland's second-largest city after Brisbane. The city's Central Business District is located roughly in the centre of the Gold Coast in the suburb of Southport, with the suburb holding more corporate office space than anywhere else in the city. The urban area of the Gold Coast is concentrated along the coast sprawling almost 60 kilometers, joining up with the Greater Brisbane Metropolitan Area to the north and to the state border with New South Wales to the south.Prior to European settlement the area was occupied by the Yugambeh people. The demonym for the Gold Coast is Gold Coaster. The Gold Coast is a major tourist destination with a sunny, subtropical climate and has become widely known for its world-class surfing beaches, high-rise dominated skyline, theme parks, nightlife, and rainforest hinterland. The city is part of the nation's entertainment industry with television productions and a major film industry. == History == The Gold Coast is the ancestral home of a number of Indigenous clans of the Yugambeh people, including the Kombumerri, Mununjali, and Wangerriburra clans. Europeans arrived in 1823 when explorer John Oxley landed at Mermaid Beach. The hinterland's red cedar supply attracted people to the area in the mid-19th century.
