Do you need to excavate for your construction project? Whether you’re developing a new building or adding a parking lot, driveway or other feature to an existing site, a wide variety of projects require excavation.
When you excavate, there’s a risk of damaging utilities that are installed deep in the ground on your site. Utilities such as gas lines, electrical cables, telecommunications equipment and even storm drains are often installed beneath the ground.
Connecting with one of these utilities while excavating can result in costly, difficult to repair damage. It also poses a significant fire or electrical risk to your team that can make your job site significantly less safe.
If you’re planning to use vacuum excavation to dig a site, hire a vacuum excavation contractors to carry out a detailed survey for underground utilities, significantly reducing the risk of your team causing any accidental damage to underground gas, electricity or water utilities.

Our utility detection equipment to help vacuum excavation process
We use the highest quality utility detection equipment to locate traceable utilities at and below standard depths. Our team uses ground penetrating radar (GPR) to carry out a detailed survey of your construction site and its underground utilities.
GPR allows us to detect traceable, detectable utilities beneath the surface of your site to a high degree of accuracy. We can then mark these utilities so that they are easy to avoid during the excavation and construction process.
We also use electromagnetic detection equipment to locate utilities installed closer to the surface. From storm drains to traceable fiber-optic cables, we can detect all traceable and detectable utilities on your site to minimize the risk of damage.
