Birmingham's Specialists in CAT Scanning

First class CAT scanning solutions for digs and building sites across Birmingham and the Midlands. 

When you're undertaking any sort of building or excavation work, it is absolutely vital to identify exactly where any telecommunications, electricity, water or gas pipes and cables are beneath the surface. Not only would accidentally cutting through a cable or pipe potentially be unsafe for your employees, but it would also cause massive issues for businesses and any people living nearby that rely on the water, telecommunications or power. With over 4 million km of cables and pipes buried underground across the whole of the UK, including Birmingham, keeping safety in mind during any excavation or building work is incredibly important. Cutting through a power cable would have a detrimental effect not only to people working and living nearby but to your employees too and could even turn out to be extremely dangerous. With Southern Drilling's CAT Scanning service, we will quickly, safely and accurately identify where all utilities are placed underground, enabling you to excavate around them.

To find out more about how our CAT scanning service will save you money and time, call Birmingham's experts at Southern Drilling today on 01474 822785, or get in touch with us through our contact form to speak to a friendly and professional member of our team and to arrange your free, no obligation quotation and site survey at your convenience.

Keep you and your employees safe with professional cat scanning

Keeping you and your staff safe is the absolute priority and the most effective way of doing when undertaking any work on an excavation site is to utilise CAT scanning to quickly identify any pipes or cables under the surface of concrete or soil. Having your building or excavation site professionally scanned by our CAT scanning professionals will end up saving you on any potentially costly repairs of cabling and pipework when they are accidentally cut through. It will also reduce the risk of your operatives suffering personal injury, or any delays to your project in having to assess the damage and then hire a company to repair it. 

We will happily adapt our CAT scanning service to suit any situation or requirement, working on areas that are difficult to get to or where the access points are unknown. With our specialist cable avoidance tools, we will be able to provide you with an accurate, reliable, safe and affordable solution whether we are operating on concrete slabs or grass; no area is too much for our CAT scanning experts.
