Commercial Mapping and Pipe Location Services from Drain 247

Commercial Drain Mapping is a vital part of any building or development project-works without this information it will be hard to understand the drain, sewer, and culver network infrastructure.

Many developers and project managers are discovering that a lot of property does not have up to date existing drainage or sewer plans which can be cross-referenced to see if changes that have been made over time have not been added to the existing plans they can be used for the projector if extra pipes need to be lies to ensure proper drainage from the development.

Mapping is specifically useful to ensure that the existing underground drainage network system isn’t damaged or disrupted in any way during development. Commercial Mapping Drains & pipe location Services are becoming more and more popular as developers require more land to build houses due to the increase in population.

Developers needs to know the location of all underground drain, sewer, or culvert which might be present within the developers land. If it’s discovered that they cannot use the existing main drain sewer network.

The developer and project manager will need to know the nearest connection point outside the property so that they can do a sewer connection or sewer adoption. Drain 247’s qualified engineers will be able to provide this information by carrying out Commercial Mapping & pipe location Services.

Drain 247 has obtained vast knowledge and experience in this field. We always ensure that we only employ highly qualified operatives to be able to carry out full pipeline location and mapping services. We have the capability and equipment to be able to carry out Commercial Mapping & pipe location Services on all types of land. We can track and locate long distances across all types of land.


From Our Control Centre

We can dispatch engineers across the country to carry out all types of Commercial Mapping & pipe location Services. Our Drain Mapping, GPS Charting, Sewer Mapping, Sonar Tracing and Pipe Location cost is based on the level of investigation required. we produce detailed mapping plans showing.

  • Pipe sizes
  • Depth levels this
  • GPS locations
  • Flow directions
  • Manhole locations
  • Boundary measurements
  • Schematic AutoCAD drawings

As the population grows the development need to be able to build property quicker. We believe it is more cost-effective for developers to carry out piling than conventional foundation this is why it is good to have a commercial mapping & pipe location services carried out prior to any development work. Also, the information gathered will ensure that the developers piling company do not damage the existing (if present) drain, sewer, culvert network.

As a project manager or a developer, you need to know the location of the underground drain, sewer, or culvert pipework to find out if you can use the existing drainage system then look no further Drain 247 is the right company.  We are ideally located, qualified and certified to ensure that you are dealing with a reliable and competent company.

Our In-House Commercial AutoCAD Team

Our drain tracing and sonar tracing engineers have the capability to create new AutoCAD maps or to transfer GPS and mapping data onto existing AutoCAD maps. The accuracy of this data is crucially important for architects and developers, and to meet this level of quality Drain 24/7 has invested in the latest GPS and sonar mapping technology, and crawler cam tracking units.

This enables our commercial mapping, drain tracing, sonar tracing, and pipe location service engineers to create high-quality reports, maps and fully annotated site plans of sewers, culverts, riverbeds, and wider drainage systems and features.

Trained Experts

The highly trained OS19X and OS20X and experienced mapping operators are fully trained in operating the equipment. Each inspection vehicle carries a full range of safety equipment including gas monitors, harness and ropes allowing all operations relating to the CCTV surveying, mapping to be carried out in accordance with health and safety legislation

We really go to great lengths when conducting commercial mapping and drains, sewer and culvert tracing. We do this by using the latest commercial mapping technology which emits a signal that can be accurately traced above ground to locate problems such as buried manholes, drain pipe, etc. The equipment also gives use To confirm the location and depths of those pipe work.

When structural problems are suspected in drains, sewer, and culvert pipe work. Our commercial CCTV Drain Survey allows our experienced technicians greater accuracy in identifying and diagnosing any problems which mean better-prescribed solutions for both types of clients.

What Is Drain Mapping?

Drain Mapping is the process of locating existing underground drain lines, finding out where they go and plotting the information onto a site plan; the method used to gather this information can range from sonar tracing to GPS location, water/dye tests to laser profiling to a topographical survey.

What Is Sonar Tracing?

Sonar tracing is a method to map and locate your drainage pipework; this technique relies heavily on sending out a signal from a SONDE transmitter that’s been integrated into our CCTV camera heads, the signal is then sent back up and picked up by the SONDE receiver the engineer is using above ground. The Commercial Mapping & pipe location Services engineer is then able to pinpoint the approx. depth and location of the pipework, although sometimes the signal can become distorted due to interference from other utility services cables.

What Is GPS Mapping?

GPS Commercial Mapping & pipe location Services is a type of mapping service that integrates GPS locations with a sonar trace. The drainage engineer will use the utility GPS tracer to be able to obtain the longitude and latitude reading. This data will then be transferred to the mapping service. The benefit of this is to allow for the approx. location of the pipework to be obtained in accordance with the equipment manufacturers guidelines.
