Pipeline companies, water districts, and refineries-Our primary services include installing test stations/anodes to 20+ feet, excavating and recoating soil-to air transitions, joint bonding, trenching and excavating in sensitive areas, and removing sol from above-ground piping.

Contractors-Kantex will verify utility locations in advance of installation projects, excavate for engineered shoring systems, and complete all excavations in areas congested with utilities.

Engineering firms-Our work is typically completed in the pre-design stage of roadway and utility installation projects to reduce relocation and utility conflict costs.  We accurately electronically designate and expose subsurface utilities for precise horizontal and vertical measurements.

Utilities-Primarily Kantex will install cathodic protection or bond discontinuos joints.  We also positively identify facilities for a variety of purposes, such as relocation information, exact location for third-party work, or depth surveys for GIS or internal facility information.

Cities and Municipalities- We coordinate closely with Planning Departments, engineering firms, and public works contractors to prevent buried utility damages and generate accurate reports per project specifications.
