Expert, proactive detection of UXO
Through a combination of geophysical surveys and visual assessments, Zetica carries out thorough on-site UXO investigations to proactively detect unexploded ordnance buried beneath your site.
In doing so, we provide you with a clear and detailed understanding of the residual UXO risk on your land, delivering our reports in an easy-to-read format with unambiguous guidance on what to do next.
We employ a strict quality-control procedure to ensure the levels of UXO detection are always understood and quantifiable. Verifying the success of our investigations is key, in order that you understand the level of detection achieved on-site.
Where potential UXO is discovered during the investigation, it is identified by experienced and military-trained Explosive Ordnance Clearance (EOC) engineers. These expert EOC engineers then work with our Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) operatives to ensure that the items are disposed of safely and calmly, with minimal disruption to your project.
Why choose Zetica for UXO investigation?
With a wide range of geophysical techniques and technologies at our disposal, we’re able to design the most effective survey possible against the anticipated site conditions, UXO type and suspected burial depth.
This armoury of techniques also allows us to adapt our methods on changeable ground, in order to generate the clearest possible results across your site.
What’s more, our vehicle-mounted platforms allow multiple techniques to be deployed at the same time, so while conducting our UXO investigation work, we can also provide cost and time savings by detecting other potential buried hazards – such as pipework and cabling or waste ground.
These are just some of the reasons why we’re trusted to deal with UXO by the likes of the Environment Agency, Homes England, National Grid, the RSPB and a wide range of major construction, utilities and engineering firms across the UK.
