Whilst developing a property on a hillside in West Vancouver, the depth of the underlying bedrock became an important factor in the development. With plans to excavate in places, the presence of bedrock would involve blasting and increasing the cost significantly.
GeoScan used low frequency Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) antennas to achieve greater depth penetration and performed a bedrock survey to identify bedrock depths across the property. By utilizing collected GPS survey points, the results could also be displayed clearly on a positional map and kept for future records. Bedrock depth can fluctuate quite significantly especially on hillsides so a subsurface survey of the area can prove very useful.
