PRIVATE UTILITY LOCATES
Frontier is able to trace the path of buried metallic utility lines, including power, telecom, cable TV, gas, water and more.
A sonde is a small, waterproof radio transmitter designed to be inserted into non-conductive lines.
GROUND PENETRATING RADAR
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a fantastic tool for the exploration and discovery of subsurface features.
STAKE AND SWEEP
Frontier pioneered a proprietary “Stake & Sweep” procedure designed to thoroughly scan a work area for subsurface utility lines, and mark them clearly prior to an excavation project.
Electromagnetic scanning of a site using EM31, EM61 or similar equipment can map geologic variations, ground water contaminants, or any subsurface feature associated with changes in ground conductivity.
Specialized Ground Penetrating Radar designed specifically for concrete scanning can help you drill or cut without worry.
Subsurface soil investigations for geotechnical engineering or environmental assessments present the potential risk of drilling through a buried utility line.
WIDE AREA SCANNING
Similar to our Borehole scanning service, Frontier will scan your entire excavation area for active and passive signals.
Subsurface Utility Engineering and Subsurface Utility Mapping are fast becoming standard practice for pre-engineering of complex projects.
