SubSurface Detection are service locators for utilities, cables, structures and obstructions for engineering projects, whether they’re underground, in ceilings or in walls.
Our clients range across engineers, builders and landscapers who need certainty that they won’t damage utility lines or other structures during the digging process, for both commercial and residential projects. In these instances, you can trust in SubSurface Detection and our more than 15 years of experience.
Since we were established in 2001, we have been using the most state-of-the-art radars and SubSurface technology to detect optic fibre, water, gas, and power utilities. We specialise in the application of non-destructive Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Concrete Penetrating Radars (CPR) and Electromagnetic Pipe Locators.

Concrete Penetrating Radar (CPR) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
CPR is the non-destructive inspection of concrete structures, including in ceilings, columns, walls and floors. This way, we can accurately locate the entry and exits points of valuable structural assets, to avoid damaging them. Our services include finding pre-stressed and post-tension cables and their depth, the condition and depth of rebar, and the thickness and depth of concrete slabs.
GPR uses radio waves to collect SubSurface data of up to 25 metres in depth, to construct 2D or 3D views of the SubSurface. This locates underground anomalies such as building foundations, electrical conduits, pipes, wells, soak-wells, leach drains, septic tanks, contamination plumes, gravesites and voids.
