The Prime is an entry-level search detailing key utilities in and around your enquiry area.


We make enquiries  to the core  utility companies (electric, local water & drainage, gas and Openreach (BT)), plus independent gas and electric companies (IGTs/IDNOs), and LinesearchbeforeUdig to obtain their asset maps and issue to you in PDF report format via email or file transfer.

Why Do I Need The Prime Report?

#SearchFirstDigLater® for utilities greatly reduces the chance of dangerous and expensive cable strikes or damage to other utility assets.

We classify the search responses received in terms of their proximity to the enquiry area using a red, amber and green system (RAG rating) which enables the reader to quickly pinpoint utilities of concern.
