Almost all construction related activities require underground utilities to be located prior to breaking ground to enable safe exposure for connection or avoidance.
We are trained and accredited to NPORS standards. We work alongside local authorities and distribution network operators to help contractors and private clients locate services using power and radio detection, attached SONDE & EMP techniques, with market leading cable avoidance apparatus accredited by Network Rail.
Underground services should never be underestimated. HBS carry out extensive site surveys, visibly marking out identified services, and provide detailed drawings, images and co-ordinates to provide you with as much information as possible prior to breaking ground, to minimise risk of service strikes which could cause fatalities, loss of service and revenue.
HBS are members of various trade associations and hold comprehensive insurance policies for all work undertaken. We are professionally trained and accredited, ensuring all works are planned and delivered to the highest standard.
We are always seeking and undertaking Continual Professional Development relative to our services and remain current and compliant as construction regulations and practices evolve.
