Work That Was Carried Out

The Smartscan team, experts in Utility Locating, recently undertook a project that was a bit different from the norm. Tasked with Underground Utility Locating, the location presented a unique challenge, deviating from the conventional sites we usually encounter. However, our qualified team is always ready to tackle the unexpected and thrives on such curveballs.

The primary challenge in this project was accessibility due to the steep slope of the site. We evaluated several methodologies to overcome this hurdle, ultimately deciding on a practical solution that involved the use of harnesses and a hand core drill. This approach allowed us to safely navigate the challenging terrain and effectively carry out the Utility Locating Service. Despite the unconventional nature of the project, our team’s expertise and adaptability ensured a successful completion.
