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 approach is highly effective for underground utilities locating because it minimizes the risk of damage to the utility during the excavation process. Additionally, hydro excavation trucks can be equipped with specialized nozzles and attachments that are designed to create precise holes or trenches, making them highly accurate and reliable for utility locating.
Overall, the use of hydro excavation trucks for underground utilities locating is a safe, efficient, and effective solution for identifying the location of buried utilities. By using hydro excavation trucks, construction companies and other organizations can ensure the safety of their workers and prevent costly and potentially dangerous damage to underground utilities.
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In the past, locating underground cables was based on utility company records which were often outdated and limited in accuracy.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 Sunshine Coast is a peri-urban region in South East Queensland, Australia. It is the district defined in 1967 as "the area contained in the Shires of Landsborough, Maroochy and Noosa, but excluding Bribie Island". Located 100 km (62 mi) north of the centre of Brisbane in South East Queensland, on the Coral Sea coastline, its urban area spans approximately 60 km (37 mi) of coastline and hinterland from Pelican Waters to Tewantin. The area has several coastal hubs at Caloundra, Kawana Waters, Maroochydore and Noosa Heads. Nambour and Maleny have developed as primary commercial centres for the hinterland. Since 2014, the Sunshine Coast district has been split into two local government areas, the Sunshine Coast Region and the Shire of Noosa, which administer the southern and northern parts of the Sunshine Coast respectively. As of June 2021, with an estimated urban population of 398,840, the Sunshine Coast is the fifth most populated area in Queensland and the 9th most populous in the country. The population of the area has grown steadily at an average annual rate of 2.4% year-on-year over the five years to 2018. == History == The earliest residents of the Sunshine Coast were the indigenous Gubbi Gubbi and Wakka Wakka people. The territory of the Kabi includes about 21,000 square kilometres (8,200 sq mi) along the coastline from the 27th parallel northward to the mouth of the Burrum River.
