Our trained Damage Prevention Technicians can help find it before your equipment does.
We offer two slightly different services, Private Underground Locating of utilities and other objects. And our new service that we are excited to offer, Concrete Scanning and Imaging.
Before doing any work on concrete, drilling or cutting it is a good idea to not only finds out what is embedded in the concrete, but also its precise location. We have purchased new GPR equipment, called the” Conquest “system that does not only that, but also produces 3D images that help the operator sort out complicated scans. Grids up to 4’x4’ are attached to the concrete surface, and the area is scanned into the machine. A 3D image is then produced and displayed on a screen; any objects that are exposed in the concrete can then be marked back on the grid. A linear scan can be performed to give a quick idea of the contents of the concrete and its depth. However the grid scan should be performed for best results.
What does Private Underground Locating mean? It is finding and marking all buried services you or your company owns before digging starts. The exact spot ownership changes from Public to Private vary with the service provider. Service lines may be struck when carrying out projects as simple as planting a tree or driving in a sign post. So be safe and call for a private locate before the project begins.
Some applications are: mapping drainage tile in fields and golf courses, electrical cables in concrete and earth, locate USTs (tanks), burial sites and mapping, subsurface sink holes and cavities, as well as the more standard communication, gas, power, water and sewer. Also Bore Hole (BH) clearing, magnetic surveys, electrical ground fault, abandon well, and property stakes locates can be done.
We are situated close to Windsor, Sarnia, and London , in southern Ontario.
