Dedicated Locator Services

At multiVIEW we understand that a project owner’s profitability can erode from late utility locates. That is why we are proud to offer our Dedicated Locator services – your go-to solution to bring projects in on time.

Construction projects face numerous challenges, but late locates shouldn’t be one of them. These projects are often time-sensitive and late or incomplete utility locates can inevitably cause delays, leading to cost overruns that erode the project’s profitability including that of its contractors.

This is where a Dedicated Locator program from multiVIEW can help. We offer a holistic and committed approach to locating and marking underground utility infrastructure for your project. By employing multiVIEW, you will receive an experienced team dedicated to delivering accurate and timely locates for all underground infrastructure on your specific project when, where, and how often the project requires.

Our approved Dedicator Locator programs are intended for project owners that have mid to large-scale projects with complex locate requirements. These are projects that need to be serviced differently from the standard homeowner and small contractor locates without sacrificing accuracy, completeness, and timing so projects can move forward and on schedule.

Whether you are a telecom provider with a broadband project or a utility or municipal partner with a major capital project, we will partner with you to develop a Dedicated Locator program that’s appropriate for your project requirements.

Vast fleet of highly trained Dedicated Locators

Our highly trained and experienced team of dedicated utility locators are Damage Prevention Technician (DPT) certified and committed to the highest standards of Safety and Quality. Strategically located across Ontario, our technicians are quick to mobilize and are always equipped with the right tools to deliver accurate, complete, and timely locates regardless of size, complexity, or environment.

Dedicating the best technology for precise utility locates

Unlike many dedicated locate service providers (DLSPs), we can go beyond using basic Electromagnetic (EM) Induction equipment and techniques. Based on your project demands, we can offer a wide range of complimentary services to solve any challenges that might arise. This can include non-destructive Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to locate traditionally “un-locatable” utilities such as those made of clay, plastic, and PVC materials, or CCTV equipment to trace and inspect sewer systems. Even utilities that contain broken tracer wires when dielectric contrasts are present. We can draw upon a variety of other in-house technologies based on your project requirements.

Dedicated locate services that include thorough damage investigations

If you experience damage to utility infrastructure and need an independent investigation, we are here for you. Our documented Damage Investigation Procedure follows best practices and ensures that you receive efficient investigation reporting and unparalleled customer support.

Comprehensive, onsite Ticket Management System with benefits

Our dedicated utility locating team saves you time and money by coordinating all the locates required for your project, whether on public right of way (ROW) and/or private property if needed. Our responsive team is backed by an in-house 24/7 Ticket Management Call Centre that is supported by a comprehensive and systematically updated utility records database to deliver accurate and reliable data to clients, Locate Ticket Clearance services, and rapidly respond to in-field activities.

Fast, flexible, and responsive Dedicated Locating

Our unique approach to resourcing facilitates 24/7 service coverage, 365 days per year. You can rest assured your project will receive the support it needs, including emergency response and out-dispatching capabilities.
