CAD modelling and visualisation

We are at the forefront of CAD modelling and visualisation of underground assets. The Reveal Underground Services team is highly experienced in 2D and 3D CAD modelling. We use this expertise to assist with the classification of cable locations and subsurface utilities. 

Our 3D visualisation options allow us to keep your data safe and secure for future modelling use in one data set. All our information is stored on one system which is able to be accessed by the relevant party at the click of a button. 

We use these methods to provide you with a real-world visualisation of your data, thanks to the incorporation of feature surveys and laser scan data.  

Frequently Asked Questions

Utility mapping and location technologies such as ground penetrating radar are used to detect underground utilities such as water pipes.

To find out more about the process of underground utility locating on the Gold Coast and Brisbane, please call 1300 738 325 or by clicking below. 

Usually, there is a 2 feet margin of error (on either side) for all utility markings, and as a result there are usually 2 foot berths around markings as a precaution.

underground utilities such as gas, water, electrical, and telecommunications lines, among others. The survey is typically carried out by a team of specialised technicians using a variety of advanced tools and techniques, such as ground-penetrating radar, electromagnetic detectors, and GPS technology.

The purpose of a utility mapping survey is to provide accurate and comprehensive information about the location and depth of underground utilities, which can be critical for a variety of construction and engineering projects. By identifying the location of underground utilities in advance, engineers and contractors can avoid damaging existing infrastructure during excavation and construction, which can help prevent costly delays and accidents.

Overall, utility mapping surveys are an important tool for ensuring safe and efficient construction practices, and they are often required by local regulations and building codes.


The function of utility mapping is to provide accurate and comprehensive information about the location and type of underground utilities, such as gas, water, electrical, and telecommunication lines, among others. This information is critical for a variety of reasons, including:

  1. Safety: Accurately mapping the location of underground utilities helps prevent accidents and injuries during excavation and construction activities. By knowing where utilities are located, workers can avoid damaging them, which can prevent gas leaks, electrical shocks, and other hazardous situations.
  2. Efficiency: Knowing the location of underground utilities helps construction teams work more efficiently. By avoiding the need to excavate blindly or conduct unnecessary exploratory work, contractors can complete projects more quickly and with fewer delays.
  3. Cost savings: By accurately mapping the location of underground utilities, construction teams can avoid damaging existing infrastructure, which can be costly to repair. Additionally, by reducing the need for exploratory work and other unnecessary activities, projects can be completed more efficiently and at a lower cost.
  4. Compliance: In many areas, utility mapping is required by law or local regulations. By complying with these requirements, construction teams can avoid fines and other legal penalties.

Overall, the function of utility mapping is to provide essential information that helps ensure safe, efficient, and cost-effective construction practices.

There are several methods of utility survey, including ground-penetrating radar, electromagnetic detection, vacuum excavation, and visual inspection. The method used depends on the type and depth of the utility and the project’s specific requirements.
