We deliver the whole package: project coordination, traffic management, locate clearances and site restoration. Professional coring and excavation services are customized to match project-specific objectives.
multiVIEW Locates performs hundreds of Vacuum Excavation services annually. Customers rely on our experience and professionalism to manage projects safely, reduce project costs and liability, as well as deliver high accuracy results on time and within budget.
Our highly trained operators and field technicians cleanly and safely expose pipelines, utilities, and electrical systems. Our crews are equipped with professional coring systems to guarantee clean cutting for asphalt and concrete surfaces. Holes are restored with customer-specified, non-settling fill products to ensure site quality.
Benefits of Vacuum Excavation Services:
Reduces overall excavation time as it is quick and efficient at removing virtually all soil types (clay, frozen ground, gravel, rocks, and other material)
Minimizes restoration costs associated with the excavation project area
Virtually eliminates risk of excavation damage to utilities and existing infrastructure
Provides a minimal, targeted excavation for depths up to 6 metres
Ideal for excavations with limited accessibility or tight urban access
Vacuum Excavation Services tailored to your project
We use the latest equipment, designed for tight urban access. We offer hydro excavation and will tailor our services to best accommodate project site conditions. We also offer full site restoration services.
Hydro excavation: Uses a high-pressure water jet at high temperatures to loosen the material covering the target. This method is suitable for any soil type.
Keyhole cutting: On hard surfaces such as asphalt, concrete, or limestone, a process of keyhole cutting is applied using diamond tip cutting equipment to access the soft surface underneath. Depending on the requirements of the project.
Our Vacuum Excavation Services:
Daylighting / Test Pitting
Coring / Keyhole Excavation (concrete, asphalt, and other hard surface materials)
GPS Surveying of Utility Data
Profile and Planview CAD Drawing of Surveyed Data
Photo and Features Report
Backfill & Restoration
Project Management (Private & One-Call)
Additional services offered:
Storm Sewer System Cleaning (pipes and chambers)
Industrial Cleaning (removal of liquid, solid, slurries, and sludge)
Easily establish the location of buried utilities
Alongside some of our Vacuum Services, multiVIEW can furbish you with highly accurate reporting. The level of data provided may vary based on project requirements and customer’s desire.
