Safe and Reliable CAT scanning

We pride ourselves in offering industry-leading CAT scanning around digs and building sites throughout Kent. 

Whenever any kind of excavation work is executed, it is vital that you make a note about where any electricity, water pipes, gas or telecommunications cables are beneath the surface. As accidentally cutting through one of these cables would not only cause extreme health and safety issues for your team but may perhaps affect other individuals and businesses in the local vicinity. With over 4 million km of cables and pipes buried underground across the UK, safety is always top priority when carrying out your excavation work is paramount.  Trust Southern Drilling with your CAT scanning requirements, we will quickly and efficiently identify where utilities are placed underground, allowing you to excavate around them.
