Mapping the Subsurface with Xradar™ Pre-Design Scanning

Xradar™ were recently hired to carry out a pre-design survey for the construction of a Vancouver restaurant.

The purpose of the survey was to map all of the subsurface infrastructure and allow the architects and designers to effectively plan the layout of the property utilizing our as-built drawings.

This process would allow them to create drawings with zero conflicts, avoiding redesign costs and project delays.

Situation

A Vancouver restaurant was starting the construction process and wanted to create a sustained link between the design and construction phases of their project in order to mitigate risk and improve the speed and safety of the process.

Solution

Our trained Xradar™ technician carried out a concrete scan of the site using our Xradar™ Enhanced Concrete Scanning System. We then carried out a Pre-Design Scan of the site using 3D laser scanning to map the area.

Utilizing the data from the concrete scan and the pre-design survey, our technician provided a report of the findings in the form of an as-built drawing, overlaying the subsurface infrastructure. We also provided a 3D virtual walkthrough to allow the designers and engineers to explore the site remotely and make accurate, informed decisions without the need for a site visit.
