PAS 128 Surveys

The PAS specification outlines key stages (survey types) to obtain the most comprehensive and informative survey results for your site. The survey types are;

  • Type D Survey: Desktop search and compilation of statutory provider information.
  • Type C Survey: Underground utilities plotted from utility record data only, but with site reconnaissance to match utility record with physical utility street furniture as a best fit.
  • Type B Survey: An on-site utility mapping survey using multiple geophysical instruments. The output from this survey shall be each linear 5 metre section of utility depicted as a Quality Level (QL) 1-4 for horizontal and vertical detection accuracy.
  • Type A Survey: Utility verified and positioned by physical identification. This may be by strategically positioned vacuum excavation (offered by ADP Group), hand dug trail pitting or by visual inspection within a utility chamber.
