Municipal Infrastructure

Complex municipal infrastructure projects require accurate insights on subsurface conditions and buried utilities. multiVIEW Locates has partnered with hundreds of municipalities across the province of Ontario to supply reliable subsurface insights.

Complex municipal infrastructure projects require accurate insights on subsurface conditions and buried utilities. Constrained by project budgets and tight timelines, municipalities need to partner with a qualified Locate Service Provider to supply data required to design projects effectively at the outset, helping to avoid risk and the costs associated with utility accommodation, coordination and relocation.

multiVIEW Locates has partnered with hundreds of municipalities across the province of Ontario to supply reliable subsurface insights. No challenge it too complex and we’ve worked on projects big and small – from locating fibre optic cable under city streets to completing large Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) projects in support of the construction of Light Rail Transit (LRT) and other transit-related infrastructure.

We use multiVIEW to manage all aspects of locating our municipal services infrastructure from interfacing with Ontario One Call to field marking. We’ve found them to be accurate, reliable and responsive. Communication is excellent and any issues are dealt with quickly and efficiently.

Empowering informed municipal infrastructure design

multiVIEW Locates is highly experienced at completing all four Quality Levels of a Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) investigation and successfully executing a coordinated program. We will communicate with stakeholders, conduct records research, survey and plot visible above ground features, apply geophysical methods to accurately locate utilities in your project area, and conduct test pits to ascertain depth data.

Using professional judgement, we will then correlate all data into high quality deliverables, tailored to project specifications that include a stamped CAD drawing, high resolution photos, a utility conflict matrix and investigation report developed by our in-house Professional Engineering team.

We are also expert at carrying out a number of data acquisition activities that complement the SUE scope of work including invert investigations, CCTV sewer inspections, pole camera techniques, electromagnetic sonding for sewer locating and Confined Space Entry (CSE) for chamber data.

We create high quality drawings and reports that allow municipalities to accurately establish the location of buried utilities within a project area, providing a foundation for decision-making around construction design.

Your partner in Damage Prevention

multiVIEW Locates carries out multiple utility locating contracts throughout the province of Ontario, and is deeply experienced in navigating municipal standards and specifications. We use advanced techniques to accurately locate almost 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 can also locate the “un-locatable” such as clay pipes or utilities containing broken tracer wires.
