It’s been one year since GeoScan expanded operations into Kelowna and the Thompson Okanagan region.
Originally offering utility locating and oil tank locating, the team has since added a number of its other services including subsurface utility engineering.
“Once we gained a foothold in the market, demand for our services skyrocketed. We’ve developed strong relationships with established companies in the region and have become the go-to service provider for projects requiring SUE.”
Fiona Lenton, Kelowna Operations Manager
Key to meeting new industry contacts was the Trenchless Technology Roadshow that took place in Kelowna back in May 2022. This led to some positive discussions, valuable local insights, and a couple exciting projects.
Among the projects GeoScan has taken on over the first year include:
- Subsurface Utilities Investigation in Lytton
- Subsurface Utilities Investigation at a regional airport
- Subsurface Utilities Investigation in Castlegar along the proposed Sani, Storm, and Water Main route
- Utility Locating and Land Survey for multiple EV charging stations in the Thompson Okanagan region
It was a logical step for GeoScan to establish a presence in the Orchard City. Kelowna is now the third fastest growing city in Canada with an increasing number of highrises being built in its city centre. In addition, Kamloops has seen its population grow at a rate of 8.4% over the past five years. GeoScan services the whole Thompson Okanagan region and can mobilize additional staff from Vancouver if need be.
