Ground Penetrating Radar

ScanPlus specializes in locating and mapping underground utility services

ScanPlus specializes in locating and mapping underground utility services, both metallic and non-metallic targets, using a combination of ground penetrating radar, electromagnetic (EM) and ferrous metal detection. We are able to locate water lines, drainage pipe, electrical wiring, gas, hydro, sewer, phone and cable lines.

We provide a reliable, non-intrusive geophysical investigation which will locate and target all underground utilities prior to your project, whether it be digging, trenching, conducting site assessments or mapping. GPS 3D modelling also available!

Societal Costs

from damage to subsurface INFRASTRUCTURES

Each year, the CCGA releases the DIRT report to outline damage events throughout Canada, many which have both an obvious and less obvious price to be paid by both those affected and society at large. The utility strikes recorded have their costs reflected as both direct costs (e.g., cost to repair damaged underground infrastructures) and indirect costs (e.g., loss of productivity due to downtime resulting from damages) including but not limited to:

The cost of damage to underground infrastructure is estimated to be over $1 Billion per year. 

Ask us if Stream C is right for your project

Whether you are in the initial planning stage or require GPS accurate maps for your project, Stream C may be the right tool for your job.

ScanPlus has one of only a few Stream C GPRs in North America. There are several benefits to using Stream C, over a conventional dual antenna GPR.

Stream C is significantly different in capabilities than other systems currently in use today. The Stream C has 34 cross polarized antennas versus the two antenna systems in use across North America. The Stream C collects 700 times more data per square metre than the two antenna systems (TAS). The standard use of TAS requires immediate interpretation by the operator (data is not recorded), with anomalies (utilities etc.) being denoted on the surface with marking paint. The TAS remains the cost-effective method for locating utilities pre-excavation but does not produce the high-definition imagery of the Stream C.
