Surging demand for electric vehicles fuels the need for more EV charging points nationwide  

With the Government’s 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel car sales edging ever closer, it’s no surprise that there has been an increase in sales of electric vehicles. But as demand for electric vehicles continues to grow, so does the need for more electric vehicle charging points across the country. 

The Government has already set an ambitious target of having 300,000 public charging points across the UK by 2030. In addition to this, all new build and self-build homes with parking provisions are required to now have an EV charger installed to comply with the latest building regulations. 

Housing developments, petrol stations, supermarkets, gyms, offices… There’s no getting away from it, EV charging points are being installed everywhere you look. And this is where the services we offer can help. 

Knowing where utilities and other buried objects are located in the ground is crucial before starting any construction or excavation project, and the installation of EV charging points is no exception to this. The underground surveys we offer identify buried utilities as well as detecting ground obstructions which could hinder the installation of these charging points. Identifying these obstacles at the start of the project can save significant time and costs for the project as well as reducing the safety risks onsite.  

Our team of expert surveyors have extensive experience in underground utility mapping surveys specifically for EV charging stations. In fact, since 2020, we have worked on more than 150 sites carrying out utility surveys to facilitate the design and installation of Electric Vehicle charging points at petrol stations across the UK. The accurate and precise data we have provided has given our clients complete peace of mind that these EV charging points can be safely installed without any worry of hitting any buried services. Minimising risk and keeping projects on track is at the heart of what we do at Technics after all.
