LB Underground Service Locations & Engineering

What We Do

​LB Underground Service Locators provide sub-surface detection services to detect buried natural and liquid gas, telecommunications, water, power, drainage, and civil works. Before any kind of excavation or ground penetration work commences services locators should be consulted.

We use modern non-destructive techniques to determine the location of power cables, gas mains, telecommunications cables and water mains.

LB Underground Service locators also offer leak detection, pipe locating, sewer location, and storm water drain locations. Location of underground assets can be undertaken for third party contractors and construction consultants, as well as residential clients.

Underground service location is not only used to prevent damage to cables, pipes and other services, but also to allow contractors and maintenance workers to locate particular services which are to be tapped into. All forms of detection are carried out using non-destructive means.
