Answers to some common questions

What areas do you service?

We serve the Bay of Plenty, Thames-Coromandel, Waikato, Taupo, Gisborne, Hawkes Bay, and surrounding areas.

What is underground utility locating?

Underground utility locating is the process of identifying and marking underground utilities such as water lines, electrical lines, gas pipes, and telecommunication cables. This is crucial before any excavation work to prevent damage to these utilities.

What is Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)?

GPR is a non-destructive method used to detect non-conductive underground utilities such as concrete, nylon, or polyurethane pipes. It works by pulsing electromagnetic energy into the ground and receiving the signals reflected back from the materials below the ground.

What is hydro-excavation?

Hydro-excavation is a safe and non-destructive method of excavation that uses pressurized water and an industrial-strength vacuum to quickly and cleanly excavate soil and other materials.

What types of projects can Bay Locate assist with?

We can assist with a wide range of projects, including residential building extensions, decks, fences, pool installations, landscaping projects, as well as civil, commercial, industrial, and large private developments.
