Since 2012, it’s been mandatory for excavators to contact Ontario One Call prior to digging, and the stakes are high: individual corporations can be fined up to $500,000 for non-compliance. multiVIEW Locates is your trusted partner in Damage Prevention. Our talented, highly trained pool of Field Managers, Supervisors and Technicians are trained on a variety of utility locating tools and techniques to accurately identify buried infrastructure in your project area.
We’ve used multiVIEW’s utility locating services for various projects and find their staff to be customer oriented and skilled at problem solving. They are always willing to help to ensure that the project is a success. I would highly recommend multiVIEW to any organization requiring utility locates.
Committed to Dig Safe principles, backed by decades of experience
multiVIEW Locates is the largest supplier of private locates in Ontario and also carries out multi-year public locate contracts throughout the province. With our advanced techniques, we’re able to locate any type of buried asset including fibre communications, high voltage electricity, high pressure gas mains, water and sewer pipes, switches, pressure plates and other complex infrastructure.
We also offer full ticket clearing services and have years of experience working with Ontario One Call, managing ticket requests, conducting office clears and implementing a 360 degree feedback process. We’re actively involved in the Ontario Regional Common Ground Alliance (ORCGA) and our field staff is dedicated to Dig Safe principles.
No locating challenge is too complex
Using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), we can locate the “un-locatable” such as clay pipes or utilities containing broken tracer wires. High spatial accuracy and reliability are guaranteed at every stage of the project execution. Where depth data is required, multiVIEW Locates offers a suite of vacuum excavation services including test pitting, pot holing and daylighting. We’ll provide full project coordination including traffic and project management, securing permits and locate services. Professional coring systems guarantee clean cutting, and we will fully restore the site based on project requirements.
Safe, efficient concrete scanning, results delivered in real-time
multiVIEW Locates helped pioneer early applications of concrete scanning in the 1980s, using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). Today, our GPR applications are vast and include concrete scanning for bridges, roads, buildings and other structures. We can identify rebar spacing, rebar depth and concrete thickness prior to demolition.
GPR can also be used for void detection, bridge deterioration analysis, post tension cable imaging, concrete and asphalt thickness. Unlike X-Ray, no harmful radiation is emitted and a clearance area is not required. Results are delivered in real-time and can be presented in plan view, profile view and 3D.
Results of a concrete scan using GPR can be provided in plan view, profile view and 3D. In this picture, rebar detected in a concrete slab is overlaid on a blueprint.
