Concrete & masonry structure scanning, utility locating, geological investigation, archaeology, forensic investigation, bridge deck inspection, mining & custom applications.

Our underground utility location service features the capability to locate nonmetallic and metallic utilities, including reinforcing steel, post-tensioned & pre-tensioned cables & conduits up to 12 ft. deep & services for water, gas, power, water, communications, and cable/tv.

We can electronically locate utilities by either hooking up directly to a conductive line and sending a signal through it or sending a signal through the surface for detection. Our approach will be tailored to the quality level you require.

GPR

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) sends a signal through material such as asphalt, concrete or soil to locate a utility, conduit, PT cable or other object. This is an excellent option for non-conductive lines.

Excavating a small hole for visual verification. When mission critical information is needed that electronic detection cannot provide such as line size, material, or exact depth. Potholing is the most precise method of verification.

CCTV pipe & sewer inspection and video assessment of waste line conditions with a locatable camera. This inspection looks for damages such as cracks, roots, blockages, or other unwanted items.

After locating the utilities, survey grade CAD drawings of the underground utility locations can be provided by our survey team. We can tie into your existing controls and work with any available standards.

Accurate, easy to read, detailed documentation is vital to your project. We offer empty conduit, vault locations, 3D modeling and many other precise reports to aid your design and project plan.
