Utility Mapping & Detection
IDS offers a full range of non-intrusive utility detection and mapping products which exploit the most advanced ground penetrating radar technologies and methodologies. Whether it is for a water company considering a major new investment or an engineering company looking to reduce costs, such technology offers vital information on subsoil conditions providing reliable data to assess safety conditions and avoid potential danger and risks. Lack of knowledge of subsoil conditions has lead to numerous, often fatal, accidents most commonly caused by utilities rupturing during excavation, pipe corrosion/deterioration and for geologic reasons (Source: The Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer, U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Geological Survey reports).
Increasing productivity, quality and minimizing costs are IDS priorities to guarantee successful results. The IDS consultative approach allows you to proceed with confidence, keeping your workers safe, avoiding delays and offering an accurate estimate of costs associated with underground improvements.
