Maverick Covers All The Bases
You need safe and reliable inspection services. You are looking for results. Your data must be collected by qualified technicians. You require information that your engineers, project managers, planners, and other professionals can base decisions on. You need to fit your budget, your timeline, and your project demands.
THE MAVERICK TEAM: WORKING FOR ALBERTA SINCE 1994
When you enlist Maverick Inspection, you are drawing on more than twenty years of operation in Western Canada, and more than a century of collective experience in remote sensing disciplines. We have enough depth to cover all of the bases: Administrative. Safety. Dispatching, Logistics, and Mobilisation. Expertise. Quality. Maverick has grown and kept pace with Alberta.
Some of Maverick’s Inspection Services
Ground-penetrating Radar (GPR) is the flagship technology in Maverick’s Subsurface Division. GPR is the science of penetrating the subsurface with radio waves in order to gather information about underground features and facilities. This service is perhaps one of the most precise and demanding remote sensing techniques we use. Equipment selection, data gathering, software analysis, reporting, and communication of results takes years of experience.
Maverick has been performing GPR services in Western Canada since 2001. We provide a wide range of reporting formats including Georeferenced Mapping and Modeling in GIS, CAD, satellite overlays. We provide services ranging from simple ground scans to mapping the subsurface of entire industrial facilities.
Maverick’s commitment to safety, quality, and reliability extends beyond training, experience, and data gathering procedures. Our team includes an Electronic Technologist with a decade of experience testing, calibrating, maintaining, and repairing remote sensing geoscientific equipment on a component level. We maintain the qualifications and requirements to access the most secure and demanding sites and facilities.
In addition to GPR, Maverick deploys subsurface technology such as Magnetometry, EM Profiling (Conductivity), Resistivity, Seismic, and Acoustics.
Maverick has been providing GPR concrete scanning services in Edmonton Alberta since 2001. We are the only radar inspection services provider that has a minimum one year training/mentorship for concrete scanning technicians. We are also the only service provider that combines many technologies such as utility locating equiment, infrared thermography, and remote video camera systems for mapping out structures in and below concrete.
Maverick’s concrete scans include marking of features before cutting/coring/anchoring, data gathering and modeling for engineering studies, void detection, concrete thickness mapping, and in-floor heating system troubleshooting.
INDUSTRIAL CAMERA INSPECTION SERVICES
Whether mounted on a robotic crawler, a pipe camera, a video scope, an aerial drone or other platform, video inspection systems are a powerful tool for gathering information quickly and safely.
Maverick Inspection has been providing video inspection services to Western Canada since 1994. We are the only service provider offering CSA rated explosion-proof camera systems.
Our decades of hands-on experience cover all types and sizes of industrial sites. We have accessed the internals of every type of pipe, vessel, tube, stack, chimney, tank and other equipment imaginable. We have performed retrievals, gathered samples, guided installations and assemblies, developed inspection plans, and sought out and introduced prototype inspection equipment.
We often deploy our crews before others have even returned your phone call or email. We modify and develop camera inspection systems if there is no existing option. We specialize in applications that other companies cannot even imagine attempting.
We add measurement software, retrieval and sampling tools, laser pipe profiling, and other accessories on an application-by-application basis.
In Western Canada, and especially Alberta, there is a massive amount of underground facilities. There are more kilometers of pipelines in Alberta than there are roads. There are gas, electrical, and water services, underground storage tanks, communications systems and drainage and sewer lines. Not all of these hazards are located by the free and mandatory Alberta One Call service. Not all are locatable by traditional methods.
Maverick specializes in the secondary or private locates. These are often facilities untraceable through traditional methods, on industrial or commercial sites, pipeline right-of ways, and sometimes sites that have poor or no records.
We stand alone in our ability to deploy a wide range of technologies, cover difficult terrain, and provide results in formats beyond traditional field markings and sketches and including GIS and CAD deliverables.
We can bring in other technologies such as GPR, pipe camera systems, and other remote sensing options to round out our capabilities. Maverick is a member of the Alberta Common Ground Alliance (ABCGA) and the Canadian Association of Pipeline and Utility Locating Contractors (CAPULC).
GEOREFERENCED MAPPING AND MODELING
Maverick provides more than safe, diligent, and innovating data gathering. In addition, we measure, map, model, analyse, overlay and provide reports and results exactly how our clients need them. From photogrammetry to LIDAR, CAD, GIS, analysis software, measurement systems and more, Maverick provides actionable results.
We work with professionals in engineering, geophysics, industrial inspection, forensics, archaeology, construction, and more. We gather and present data in the quality and the formats that Alberta depends on.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Maverick has sourced, modified, and created inspection solutions since the company began in 1994. We search out innovators and inventors and introduce their technology to Western Canada. We modify inspection systems at our facility and in the field to offer inspection services where others fall short.
When there isn’t a solution readily available, or if a modification isn’t sufficient, we create a custom system at our Research and Development Facility. We are able to provide results quickly and at a minimal expense.
Would you like more information?
Call or email us. We are always happy to discuss your inspection scenarios. We can come out to your site for a presentation such as a lunch-and-learn or an information session crafted for your facility and challenges. You will always get an actual person when you phone Maverick, and a technician with the specific expertise you require will contact you ASAP to talk to you in person.
