Introducing the new
We’re excited to announce the launch of our new website Developed with the user in mind, the new site offers easier navigation, a clean and responsive design, enhanced content and interactive features.

Check out the Resource Centre to read how other organizations are achieving success using non-destructive techniques; learn more about a variety of technologies including Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Electromagnetic Induction and Seismic Refraction; and view a project gallery of past work. The site also provides information on the latest industry trends and regulations affecting Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE), bridge and road inspections, and private utility locating.
The responsive design makes it easier to book services from the field. Using the intuitive “Book a Locate” button, you can connect directly to the online utility locate booking form, fill it out and submit it from your mobile device. 

Looking forward, we will continue to expand both the content and functionality available on the website – stay tuned!
We've expanded our presence in the National Capital Region
With construction on the rise in the National Capital Region,we've recently opened a Kanata-based facility and added capacity. This will allow us to mobilize quickly and bring long term employment opportunities into the City of Ottawa and surrounding area. Read more about it in the latest issue of Ottawa Construction News, page 11.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Are there Canadian standards that apply to Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE)?

In 2011, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) released Standard S250 Mapping of Underground Utility Infrastructure which builds upon ASCE 38-02 and outlines best practices for mapping and managing records for underground infrastructure.

The standard emerged from a recognized need by utility owners, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, contractors and locators to improve data collection processes and clean up existing records. The standard also provides data sharing guidance for utilities that need to analyze the position of their assets versus another utility’s assets (e.g., a pipe versus a cable).

CSA S250 compliments and extends ASCE Standard 38-02 by setting out requirements for generating, storing, distributing, and using mapping records to ensure that underground utilities are readily identifiable and locatable. Accuracy levels expand upon Quality Level A, prescribing a finer level of detail to define the positional location of the infrastructure.

The standard also defines accuracy parameters for as-built records and specifies the utility attributes to be used for describing and depicting newly built underground utility infrastructure.  This promotes a consistent, effective approach to data collection that ensures the quality of utility records well into the future.

An effective SUE program encompasses principles set forth by both ASCE 38-02 and CSA S250. By encouraging a management systems approach to mapping and record keeping, these standards allow municipalities and their service providers to increase the accuracy and reliability of their data in order to reduce potential utility damage and service interruptions.
