Have peace of mind

Scantek Group is a Melbourne based company owned and operated by Steven McConnell which specialises in Underground Pipe and Cable Locating, Cable Fault Detection and Infrared Thermal Imaging.

We generally say we’re cheaper than a funeral because you don’t want to make the fatal mistake of digging up a vital electrical cable or bursting a gas pipe, so it’s safer to give us a call before you begin any digging project.

If you do have an upcoming excavating project, then you will need to have a dial before you dig plans on-site before you begin any earthworks. It’s an essential service when locating underground utilities and it’s something we can certainly help you with.

Our technicians will supply a report advising you of any or all underground utilities, pinpoint exactly where any cable faults are or provide you with thermal imaging report of any faults that are detected in electrical systems and rotating equipment.

With two decade of experience, Scantek Group is able to provide Melbourne customers with prompt and reliable service — saving you time and money in the process — whilst also giving you the peace-of-mind knowing you can safely execute your projects.


Pipe and Cable Locating

The key to any excavation project is knowing exactly what is underground before you start digging. Failure to identify any underground assets and the result can become very costly (in some cases even illegal).


Cable Fault Detection

Underground cable faults can present themselves as a minor inconvenience to private dwellings or a major — and expensive — problem to locate and rectify for commercial and industrial facilities.


Thermal Imaging

The detection of faults in electrical systems and rotating equipment can prevent costly damage and downtime for commercial and industrial customers and may also be a prerequisite requirement for insurance purposes.

Sent enquiry through on Sat and Steve called that same day, arranged time and called twice more to confirm and verify our needs. High satisfaction with the communication and level of professionalism offered. Highly recommend.
Steve from Scantek came around today to check our yard for gas and water pipes. He was friendly and most importantly thorough, I now feel confident to dig up our front garden. His quote was the best quote, especially as it was hard to find people who would do domestic jobs for a reasonable price.
Exceptional service & I'm so glad I had my services located on my 1 acre block as Scantek located my power to my shed was not where I thought it was. This would of been a disaster if I hadn’t located power before having construction work started. Highly recommended!
We had an urgent fault with a power cable and Steve had a quick response and located the fault and depth exactly.
Quick response, very knowledgeable and was able to locate everything required prior to excavating .
Quick, efficient and professional service that allowed us to find a fault! Thank you!
