What are Trial Holes / Trial Pits?

Strategically placed trial holes can verify the location and depth of underground utilities prior to design and build which generates site health and safety improvements alongside vast project cost savings. Trial Holes are a quick, low-cost site investigation method to gain information for any underlying utility pipelines which may not have already been located.

Carrying out trial holes is the safest and most accurate way to confirm any underground pipes and cables that may be on your site.

When carrying out construction work it is important to understand the underground services that may be on your land, particularly when the work involves digging. Contact with underground services can be expensive, and sometimes even fatal.

There is often uncertainty regarding the location of underground services, as they may have been in place for many years. Even when records do show locations of underground services, these can have inaccuracies.

Planning your project with underground services in mind can prevent or greatly reduce the risk of problems during the project.
