One of our primary features is our ability to collect GPS information for any job site we work on. We are able to collect fixed GPS points on any feature that pertains to the job site which in turn allows us to create highly detailed and accurate maps/designs. This is particularly beneficial for utility locating as it allows us to provide contractors and homeowners with finished locate maps that are correct and easy to understand.
We perform these GPS procedures for every locate request we complete. Our damage prevention technicians will collect GPS points on the road/turbine lane way, the high-voltage cable itself, transformers, junction boxes, hydro poles, signs, posts, stakes, flags, or any other feature that applies to the locate request. Once collected, the information is extrapolated in our mapping software which allows us to create the finished locate map.
MAPPING AND DESIGN
Our finished locate maps are extremely accurate. They allow for distance measurements from fixed features on site which are displayed on the map in an easy-to-understand format. Since our maps are created using GPS data, it eliminates the potential for any crude or rudimentary drawings/maps being supplied to the contractors/homeowners. Collecting information via GPS enables us to ensure the information on any of our maps is an exact representation of the working area and its underground infrastructure.
Our ability to provide contractors and homeowners with an accurate portrayal of the underground utilities in their working area eliminates any supposition or "guesswork" on their part. Our clients can take comfort in knowing that their utilities are protected, as any personnel working in close proximity to their infrastructure will be equipped with the proper knowledge and accurate locate maps.

Aside from providing locate maps for our clients, we also have the ability to produce accurate as-built designs. We can essentially map an entire high-voltage utility network using our locating equipment combined with our GPS equipment. By taking GPS points on the cable path, and fixed features such as junction boxes and/or transformers, we can provide our clients with a completely accurate as-built blueprint of their infrastructure.
We can produce these as-built designs in several different formats, such as drawing files, KMZ files, and general PDF files. The end result is an accurate representation of the entire infrastructure which is not only beneficial to the client, but also any personnel performing work in proximity to their infrastructure as well, including SiteWorks Locating Inc.
Although it is most efficient to collect this as-built information at the beginning of any major project, SiteWorks has the ability to produce as-built designs even after construction has already been completed due to the GPS technology and utility locating equipment we use.
SITEWORKS LOCATING INC.
We strive to make the renewable energy industry safer one locate at a time. Whether it be a major commercial project, or a small private locate for a homeowner, we will always maintain efficiency, accuracy, and above all: safety.
