An Industry Leader Delivering Operational Solutions for Difficult Projects
While technology has come a long way, we unfortunately still don’t yet have accurate data that can tell us exactly where all underground infrastructure and assets are, especially in areas with large populations. This is due to a combination of incorrect placement when the infrastructure was initially constructed, insufficient mapping, lost plans or ambiguous data.
This can make underground work tedious, time-consuming and dangerous, with contractors facing the risk of damaging underground assets and therefore being responsible for the repair or replacement of the infrastructure.
VAC Group solves this problem with its innovative solutions, using the latest technology to quickly pinpoint exactly where these underground utilities are preventing both injuries and incidents onsite and the interruption of vital services for the community.
