The Islamic Caliphate of Ahmadis opened its new World HQ in Tilford on Saturday 29th June, a project where GEOTEC Surveys assisted in providing the Underground Mapping Surveys.
Get Surrey have indicated that the complex includes offices, a multi-purpose hall and an accommodation block for full-time residents that is eco-friendly and powered by solar energy.
The site as it looked in 2016, before the development was completed
Our survey, which we have case studied, took place across the whole site over a period of 2 weeks in January & February 2016. The site consisted of rural land and old derelict farm buildings.
Our survey results uncovered a myriad of unknown services, inaccessible from manholes or other access points, strewn across the site, as shown on the below extract. These were detected passively using radio frequency detection (EML) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR).
