Client SuccessTopographical & Underground Utility Surveys at Gatwick Airport

Knights Brown required and Underground Utility Survey prior to installation of the new Control Tower. The new Control Tower at Gatwick was to be built adjacent to the existing tower and it was critical to understand exactly where the underground utilities were in the vicinity surrounding the tower. Knights Brown required an accurate AutoCAD drawing of the area showing all underground assets and features in 3D.

Airside access is always restricted and therefore all survey works were carried out during night shifts. The survey was carried out to the GAL Standard specification and PAS128 M4p methodology using Mala HDR Pro GPR and Radiodetection Rd8100 units. All utilities were mapped topographically in 3D using Trimble Total Stations to deliver a high accuracy survey.
During the survey we located Two Fibre-Optic cables encased in concrete that were not shown on the existing drawings. These were detected immediately prior to construction and in the precise location where the works were about to commence, narrowly avoiding a highly damaging strike.
