Scan Detect - Underground Scanning Services

Technology in the hands of our experts allows us to capture your site with extreme detail. Scan detection is vital to your project, as it identifies potential danger areas, and map them accordingly.

Expertise In Underground scanning services

With so many underground utilities today, there is a very real possibility that digging or excavation can strike or damage any number of buried lines such as water, sewer, oil, gas, cable TV, fibre optics, electrical, or phone lines.

Striking any of these lines can range from loss of an essential service for you to serious injury or even fatalities. This is why an underground scan of the project site is essential before any work commences. Furthermore, when the presence of an underground oil tank (UST) is suspected, you might not know the exact location of the UST.

Our ultra-modern scan detection units will quickly locate the tank and any infrastructure it is contained in.
